Me in Rome for EVS on-arrival training. 2017. 17 different countries, 24 participants, 4 trainers.

 

Just after one week spent for my EVS project in Cagliari (Italy, Sardinia), I, together with another volunteer, went to magical Rome to prepare for our EVS journey. Even though the sun was at its most and we suffered from the heat, we still had a great time and experience. Together with other 22 participants and 4 trainers from 15 different countries we made this training week great.

 

You are probably now asking yourself what the on-arrival training is? Yeah, I didn't know either before my EVS adventure had begun.  As soon as the volunteer arrives in the new country, he or she attends the training courses to make this stay even better and useful. So we packed our bags and made it to Rome!

And it was worth it!

After ice-breaking activities in the first days, we started to discuss important topics for volunteers.  Themes discussed included conflict management, intercultural learning, dealing with culture shock, youthpass, rights and responsibilities of EVS volunteer. Besides all that we had intense Italian language course every day for 4 hours, time for sightseeing and chance to enjoy delicious Italian cuisine during this week. Also, we learned a lot of new things that prepared us for our stay here. For some participants, this EVS opportunity is the first time living and working abroad, which is not always easy. We were talking a lot about the cultural differences, we even did some role play, which gave us the better understanding of nature of some cultural specificities of Italy as well as other nations and how to adapt to them.

Evenings after dinner we spent exploring the secrets of Rome, making a lot of wishes at the beautiful Trevi fountain and, and of course, falling in love with the most historical city in the world. Enormous amount of delicious ice-cream was eaten to survive the heat.

 

 

After this training course, we can say for sure that we made a network with many other great young people currently staying in different parts of Italy for their EVS period. We managed to create a map, where each of us indicated the location of the project, isn't it cool? We can easily travel and meet each other now!

 

At the very last day we wrote a letter to ourselves, which we will receive 5 days before the end of our projects, it is a good way to understand what we did and what we have done during or voluntary mission!

Now being back in Cagliari, we already miss that time in Roma, but at the same time we are super excited about our activities here, which is a whole different story!
