GuardAvanti: per il futuro dei bambini – Implemented

January 2020 – September 2020

Lombardy, Italy

9 Months Long Term ESC


In Italy GuardAvanti is active on global citizenship education in all levels of schools and: supports international campaigns,  manages sponsorship, organizes fundraising campaigns does social media communication. Abroad GuardAvanti is active, in particular, in Democratic Republic of the Congo and in Zambia, in the field of education and sustainable development. In addition, we’ve already had an experience with European volunteers in 2018-19 with two volunteers coming from France and Portugal.

Based in Lombardy, a region in the North-West of Italy, Guardavanti has headquarter in Villanterio. Moreover, it has an operational point in Somma Lombardo, where the volunteers will be based. Somma Lombardo is a small town in the Varese province of just over 17,800 inhabitants, located 50 km from Milan, 20 km from Varese and next to other cities, at an altitude of about 300 meters above sea level.


The volunteers will be working for a total of 30-35 hours per week, 5 days a week generally Monday to Friday. Occasionally they will be asked to take part in events organized on Saturdays and/or Sundays and in this case they will be guaranteed, however, additional free days per week. They will work along with the staff in Somma Lombardo and they will be supervised by and in contact with the other staff members of the association who live abroad. In this way the volunteers will experience remote working that is now becoming mainstream.

Accommodation and Transportation

The ESC volunteers will be hosted in a flat in  Somma Lombardo (province of Varese). GuardAvanti will rent for the volunteers a flat composed by two bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. When ESC volunteers will participate in institutional activities of Guardavanti located out of Somma Lombardo, the association will cover
any related expense, previously authorized by their supervisor.

Volunteers will be given monthly financial support, along with pocket money, which will allow them to do their shopping and prepare meals for themselves in the kitchen of the apartment. Every volunteer will be given monthly a pocket money of 5 euros a day The travel costs will be reimbursed up to a certain amount allocated by the European Commission.



Age Limit: 18-30 years old
