Volunteers will be fully involved into the main activities run by Ostello dei Balocchi, in particular they will:
- assist in the preparation and implementation of educational workshops for children and teens (6-14 years): support in the facilitation, conduction of some workshops, support in the group management according to the inclination of the volunteers
- provide assistance during excursions with donkeys, trekking and summer camps: preparing the donkeys, assisting the children with tents, organising educational activities for children
- provide assistance to the staff for daily activities: welcoming of the guests, cleaning of the hostel and of the surrounding area, performing small maintenance, supporting kitchen activities
- provide assistance in the care of donkeys: not only feeding and cleaning but in terms of creating a positive creation with the animals
- support the implementation of Youth Exchanges hosted at Ostello dei Balocchi, in particular logistics, workshops and kitchen duties
After a first time of adaptation the volunteers will be encouraged to design and implement didactic workshops by themselves (ex. on art, environment education, creative recycling etc…) to help the project.
