Volunteering in Italy despite CORONA?

Carla has started her ESC Volunteering project in Cento – despite the pandemic! We are happy to share with you her report of the first 2 months.

‘It’s up to me’ has been a point of reference to me about how excellent Training Courses should be. It was designed to every detail and taught me how to be a confident trainer. I learnt how to use my emotional side as my strength, how to be honest and myself and how to form meaningful connections with the participants of my projects.

Eleni

Greece

On the youth exchange “Connect2Create”, I learnt that I am capable to make great things and that I am stronger than I thought. It is amazing to see your ideas become reality. I really liked the recycled art workshop, because I became more creative and I created something I am proud of. Thank you for the amazing opportunity! It was demanding and exhausting, but I learnt so many things and met so many interesting people – it was totally worth it!

Participant

‘It’s up to me’ exceeded all my expectations about it. It has completely changed me and my life through the marvelous training sessions delivered by the inspiring personalities and sharing my learning experience with open-minded and interesting people from all over Europe! I am not afraid to step out of the box now, because I know it’s up to me!

Alina

Estonia

The best thing on the youth exchange “United in Nature and Humanity” were the people, without them, the project would not have been the same. Besides that – the canoe trip. I learnt a lot about myself, about other countries, about people, camping and I realised things that I need to put the focus on.

Participant

Croatia

I have been to more than 6 trainings so far and I must openly say that ‘It’s up to me’ was the most productive one so far. We did so much work in a very short time, we learnt a lot about ourselves as well and understood our weak and strong sides. This experience was so motivating and inspiring. I got so many ideas about what I want to develop or which direction I want to go in life.

Lenka

Turkey / Czech Republic

The atmosphere that the participants and coordinators created was out of this world. I truly felt like I belonged to a community where I can be open about my thoughts and feelings without any judgment. Coming together with the mutual goal of living healthier created the amazing experience of the youth exchange “Healthy Lifestyle”. I will definitely continue doing meditation and Zumba. I will also try to prepare healthy meals for myself and implement the physical exercises that we learned during this exchange.

Participant

North Macedonia

‘It’s up to me’ is one of the most powerful TC I’ve been to. If you will be as lucky as I was, it will put you outside your “comfort zone” and will make you learn how to face challenging situations. I wish I was not there last year, because I’d love to relive that experience with such an experienced team and great participants!

Giulia

Italy

For the first time, I had to live in a tent and it was rather tough at the beginning, but after a couple of days I got used to it. On the youth exchange “United in Nature and Humanity”, I learnt how to work without taking weather conditions into consideration. I feel like I can make a change, that everything starts with me.
