The association promotes and encourages volunteering, giving young people experiences which will stay with them their whole lives. For those not so young, it provides them with an opportunity to make use of their wide experience and expertise for the benefit of all the recipients of our projects.
There are permanent volunteers in the association, but we also welcome volunteers on a short-term basis linked to a particular project they may have proposed. Acceptance of any project depends on its feasibility and its approval by the local partners.
The permanent roles filled by volunteers, apart from the President, are:
Treasury, Nadia Virgili; The Arts, Simonetta Lambertini; Sponsorship, Chiara Maurilio; Music area Valeria Mineo; Sport area Marika Prandato; Web design and Web manager, Maurizio Ambrosanio; Social secretary, Giovanni Giunta; Graphics, Enrico Frattaroli; English version of the website, Jill Morris.
