Esplora and ViaggiDiffusi are offering a really interesting volunteer project:
have the opportunity to work with us, especially on Accessible tourism paths.
One year volunteering opportunity to work in a non-profit organization, specialized in Accessible Tourism and local solidarity activities dedicated to people with sensorial disabilities. The volunteer will help the organization in its daily work and he will be part of the team.
The aim is to improve the work of the organization, but mostly to give to the volunteer the right means to find a way to empower his/her entrepreneurship skills.
