The project plans the involvement of European volunteers in the organization, helping operators (educators and entertainers) in carrying out the educative and entertainment activities.

The volunteers will be a support in the realization of projects which are thought by the educators and the entertainers' coordinator in order to improve motor, cognitive and visual abilities of elderly people. In addition to this, the volunteers can talk to them increasing their cultural knowledge.
The volunteers will dedicate most of their time to entertainment activities with the opportunity to improve them with new proposals, ideas and suggestions according to their abilities, motivations and background.

We are convinced that the volunteers, being able to test their strength in such an experience as the European Voluntary Service, are young people full of resources, gifted with personal initiative and creativity. Their presence and their help will represent for us an important support in the realization of our activities and in the improvement of the quality of life of our guests.
