The no-profit Association La Strada has been working for fifteen years in the territory of the municipalities of Medicina and Castel Guelfo in the province of Bologna, in social work especially to help children in conditions of social difficulties. Over the years, the work has expanded, involving young people and adults, especially immigrants. The activities of the association begin with the daily work, each afternoon, of specific and personalised support open to boys and girls reported by the school and local social services. Afternoon activities include educational and entertainment moments with various themes that are being developed over the entire year. The association helps also in the learning process of Italian for immigrants (children, young people, adults) who have recently arrived in our country and it started an information point about job research or other bureaucratic issues.

The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) is an initiative of the European Union that offers the possibility to EU citizens, from 18 to 30 years old, to carry out a period of volunteering, traineeship or job abroad in an institution or organization. The maximum duration of each project is 12 months, but it is possible to participate in a „short term” project (<60 days) and then in a „long term” project, with a maximum overall duration of 14 months.

ESC projects cover travel (with limited budget), food, accommodation, activities, and mentoring costs. Each volunteer also receives monthly a financial support that changes according to the country of destination (pocket money). A health insurance (CIGNA) is also provided.
