Volunteering and Civil Service

The Civil Service is dedicated to young people participating to the projects, an opportunity to live a human and professional experience for 12 months, improving one's own knowledges and contributing to one's Country's social and cultural development. In fact, the Civil Service's main purpose is to contribute to the defense of the homeland, promote the national and international social solidarity, contribute to the safeguard and protection of the national heritage, especially regarding the environmental, forestry, historical-artistic sector and the Civil Protection.

The voluntary civil service guarantees a strong educational and training value to the young people, and it is a significant chance of personal growing, an education opportunity for the active citizenry, a precious tool to help the weakest bracket of the society and to contribute to our Country's social, cultural and economic development.

Those who choose to commit themselves to the Voluntary Civil Service for twelve months also choose to add a qualifying experience to their knowledges which will be useful in their working life, and it even guarantees a small economic independence.

Further modalities proposed by the Park Authority to volunteer within the protected area:

  • 1) Settimane del volontariato (Volunteering weeks)
