This week we have decided to do a little Q&A to answer some of your questions:
Jump in is a concept regarding different ways of living out our possibilities, showcasing the value of diversity and fulfilling our personal ambitions. We do that by investing in the youth and paying attention to their voices as they are an essential source for new ideas, creativity and artistic expression. Our key value is interculturality, which we promote over national boundaries and stereotypes.
We try to educate youngsters to a peaceful cohabitation with people coming from different cultures, countries and social conditions by giving them the opportunity to confront themselves with others in an intercultural environment which stimulates the development of a social conscience.
Jump In provides activities to educate our youth through non-formal methods. These activities can be:
Educational projects in schools and on an extra-curricular basis focused on active citizenship, European conscience, methods against racism and xenophobia, human rights principles;
Cultural events (conferences, seminars, cineforum, concerts, art exhibitions);
Intercultural activities (programs and projects for youth mobility, education on international topics, promotion of different cultures in Italy and abroad, welcoming activities for tourists and foreigners, promotion of Youth in Action Program);
Territorial promotions (promotion of its typical aspects, its artists, tourism, sport activities).
You can apply for volunteering through EVS and for an internship through Erasmus. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com , if you want to write to us directly. For information about the projects visit our Facebook page.
- Will I get paid for my work?
Applying as a volunteer you will get free accomodation and a monthly allowance. If you are applying for an internship through Erasmus they will support you financaly, but you have to pay for accomodation.
Jump In always finds a place to stay for their employees. You will be accomodated in a local B&B, apartment or the volunteers house, depending on the period of your stay. The rooms usualy accomodate up to 2-3 people, so you will have a roommate.
