Project Activities

Within the framework of our project, volunteers will play a fundamental role within our team at GIOSEF ITALY. They will be at the forefront of various communication and marketing activities for the third sector, actively contributing to the growth of their skills in fields such as communication, marketing, radio production, audio technology, public speaking, and DJing. Through these experiences, they will have the opportunity to promote social causes and support the empowerment of young people.

Activities with Partners:

In addition to internal activities at GIOSEF ITALY, volunteers will also have the opportunity to engage in activities hosted by our project partners. These activities include:

Centro Penc

  • Supporting WGSS activities. Facilitating access to knowledge, skills, and services.
  • Supporting social networking for women and adolescents at the WGSS center.
  • Providing support for online and offline communication for Centro Penc and WGSS.

  • Understanding the challenges and dynamics of migrants in the Italian context.
  • Acquiring practical skills in supporting migrants.
  • Developing skills in creating communication products to disseminate the results of Polo Sociale Integrato and GIOSEF ITALY.
  • Participating in additional communication initiatives to spread the project’s mission and results.

Ballarò Vipers

  • Support sports activities in the mini-basketball project at Lombardo Radice School in Palermo, within the Ballarò neighborhood.
  • Assist in logistics and the management of activities with children.
  • Aid in the communication activities of the Ballarò Vipers mini-basketball project at Lombardo Radice School in Palermo, within the Ballarò neighborhood.

  • Organizing playful-educational activities on art, foreign languages, and social environmental issues.
    Promoting cultural exchange and intercultural understanding.
