PROJECT: Agape International Ecumenical Centre is a place where you can live an intense experience of community in beautiful natural surroundings. This international place has been built after the Second World War as a sign of hope and reconciliation between people, thanks to the voluntary work of many young men and women. Agape was and still is an important point of reference in Italian Protestantism. It has been for 70 years a place of education and development, theological exploration, political engagement, acceptance and validation of differences. Every year, many people with different age , religious, culture, and policy direction come to Agape to get to know themselves and each other. The aim is to discuss and exchange experiences around a particular theme. www.agapecentroecumenico.org, here you will see the activity

Work And Activities

Volunteers will help in the following areas: kitchen, meal service (tables and dishes), cleaning, maintenance, bartending, babysitting.
Games, discussions and trips can be organized during the free time. The activities of AGAPE take place in the evening and are opened to volunteers if they don't have work commitments,

Accommodation And Food

The workcampers will be host in 3-4 bedrooms with shared toilets on the floor. The meals are typical Italian Mediterranean cuisine, with limited consumption of meat for environmental reasons. There is the possibility of alternative choices for people who require a special diet. There is a washing machine available for the volunteers group.

Place

Prali is small village of 300 inhabitants in the Italian Alps. Indeed, the place is located in a countryside, at 70km away from Turin, but the volunteers will be able to find a post office, a corner shop, a newsagent, a pub, a disco, a chemist and shops selling different kinds of goods. In a few words, It's a wonderful village completely surrounded by nature.

Requirements

We require that all volunteers contact Agape secretariat before arriving. The access is quite complicated that is why we have to explain to everyone how to arrive.
