Traineeships with the heart

In December we received six students from the La Salle Spanish school who chose Messina for a training internship as social care workers and an pharmacist. Assistance to the elderly or disabled patient is strongly felt in the city, which is home to many nursing homes and hospitals. The guys were guests of three city structures, which allowed them to take confident with the administration of drugs, the insertion of drip and the 360 degree assistance of the patient enticed. The guys stayed in one of the houses made available by Enjoy Sicily and were daily guests for lunch, their tutors. The passion and dedication they put into caring for nursing home patients was remarkable and left a wonderful memory both in the managers of the same facilities and in the tutors of Enjoy … we need people like that.



Paula during her internship in Sicily

From the last August to November we have hosted a spanish trainee, Paula Rivas. She had the opportunity to develop her placement in an online regional newspaper, “Messina Oggi” in which she could learn and acquire experience in her professional field, journalism.

She also had the opportunity to travel around Sicily and discover our wonderful island. “I travel a lot with my boss thanks to my intenrships, so I could learn more about political dynamics of the national panorama and also appreciate the cultural differences between Nothern and Southern italians. In my free time, I had the chace to see fabolous places in Sicily and appreciate the italian cuisine, thanks to the Italian Cuisine Course that Enjoy Sicily organice”.

We hope that her life experience in Messina can help her in future life as part of lifelong learning process.

Arrivederci, Paula!
