PARTICIPANT PROFILE

We are looking forward to applications of motivated volunteers who are interested in biodynamic farming and working with people who are in need of extra support. Because of the ristrictions of this project, we can only host EU residents. Although we appreciate volunteers who have an educational background in social work, we would like to stress that volunteers only execute operational activities, working together with clients who live at the farm or visit it to work there. It is important that volunteers do not mind to work outside, also when weather circumstances are not ideal.

HOW TO APPLY:

We will study carefully all applications and selected candidates will be invited for a Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the upcoming weeks.

For the selection of the volunteers we will need:

– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month) with Skype username included.

– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Enjoy Sicily”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest in the project and the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
