Why “Vitality”?

Vitality is a European Solidarity Corps project that brings vitality and dynamism on different levels:
– in the rural community of Alta Langa and lower Piedmont by introducing 3 foreign volunteers who give visibility to the opportunities of the Erasmus program offered by Vagamondo Youth Organization, they collaborate with local entities in the realization of festivals and events and their own personal project.
– in the lives of 3 young Europeans by giving them the opportunity to experience themselves outside of their own local reality and to discover new passions, enhancing undervalued talents. The project also provides learning opportunities in the field of youth work and by getting involved in the project organized at local and at international level
– in the associations involved in the project: Associazione Vagamondo will receive new inputs and new ideas from the European volunteers that will increase the offer and the capacity of the association to operate at local, national and international level
