WORK: The work camp will support the activities of AGAPE when a number of guests have meetings on issues of political, social, cultural and religious interest. Volunteers will help in the following areas: kitchen, meal service (tables and dishes), cleaning, maintenance, bar tending, babysitting. Games, discussions and outings can be organized during free time. Programmed activities(especially in the evening) are most of the time open to volunteers, as long as they do not clash with work commitments. The place is beautiful but really isolated, though you will stay together with many international participants attending the meetings of AGAPE.
Unterkunft und Verpflegung
ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD: Usually the workcampers will be host in 3-4 bed bedrooms with shared toilets on the floor. The meals are typical Italian Mediterranean cuisine, with limited consumption of meat for environmental reasons, and the possibility of alternative choices for those who require a special diet.. There is a washing machine available for the volunteers.
Lage und Freizeit
ARRIVAL: We require that all volunteers contact Agape secretariat before arriving since travel to
Agape can be complicated.
Wer organisiert das Projekt?
PROJECT: Agape International Ecumenical Centre is a place of encounter where you can live an intense experience of community in beautiful natural surroundings. Agape was and still is an important point of reference in Italian Protestantism, being for 70 years a place of education and development, theological exploration, political engagement, acceptance and validation of differences. Every year many people, with different age and religious, cultural, political background, come to Agape to discuss and to be challenged, to get to know themselves and each other and to exchange experiences around a particular theme. Agape was built after the Second
World War as a sign of hope and reconciliation between people, thanks to the voluntary work of many young men and women. A resident group still lives at Agape throughout the year. The dimensions of community and voluntary service remain central. Please visit:
