Autumn in messina

From September to November 2017, we welcomed 9 young trainees who chose Messina to complete their extra school education. Some of them are young new graduates who have perfected their studies in the field of research and biotechnology or completed their training in teaching in primary school or in advocacy. Others are young people who are completing their course of professional studies and have chosen training internships in the development of European projects. All have become very close friends and have chosen Enjoy Sicily to discover the beauty of the surrounding area and the whole region. The guys went to discover the active craters of Etna, the beauty of the temples of Agrigento and the Norman cathedral of Palermo. Each of them has left a tangible sign of his presence in each of us and their tutors …. come soon to you guys

Daniel’s experience as an electrician in Messina

From May to June, the student at La Salle school de Arcos de la Frontera (Spain), Daniel Alaguero, completed an 8-week internship in Messina with the help of Enjoy Sicily.

Daniel is a very young student who studies to become an electrician. Enjoy Sicily thought for him, an internship at “T.I.N.” of Messina, which deals with naval installations. Daniel was then crowned for the first time on a civilian ship and worked on naval power plants. The on-board multiethnic staff, warmly welcomed him and he has also greatly improved his Italian.
