As part of the European project ACTIVE SENIORS, Replay Network will host in 2019 in Rome volunteers aged 50+ from Poland and France. The last Staff Exchange in Rome was a great opportunity to meet in person the staff members of the Polish and French partner and to exchange on the most important aspects to focus on regarding the organisation of the international volunteering experiences.
The Polish partner represented by Bartek, the President of FOSa organisation, and the French partner represented by Nicolas, the project coordinator of Pistes-Solidaires organisation, joined Replay Network in Rome and had the chance to visit and experience the context of 7 possible volunteering services within 5 Italian organisations active in the social field. The Italian organisations selected for this purpose offered a diverse range of volunteering opportunities with different target groups: social and cultural initiatives, artistic, urban gardening and cooking activities with elderly, adolescents, migrants, children, disabled people. The diversity of scope and target group of the organisations visited is one of the quality aspects of the Staff Exchange in Rome. This will allow the partners a wide range of volunteering placements that they can offer to their international volunteers.
