Description

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.

Work And Activities

Volunteers will help in the following areas: kitchen, meal service (tables and dishes), cleaning, maintenance, bar tending, 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 not 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

The AGAPE workcamp take place in Prali, a small commune of Turino (in the region of Piemonte), in the Valdesi valley. It is the principal reference place of Protestantism in Italy.
Around Pirali, there are a lot of small lakes (about 10) as the Lake Uomo and the Lake Drajo.

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.
