Discover the beauty of Naples or the canals of Venice!

Offra volontariamente 15 ore ogni settimana in cambio di stanza libera e bordo in Italia!

Have you ever imagined what life would be like in Italy? Waking to a morning expresso, a visit to the the local markets and an evening spent enjoying the buzz of a local bistro. Italty is a country of diverse and amazing regions, from the beauty of the alps to the beautiful coastlines in the south.

Global Projects allows you to explore Italy whilst living as a local. This cultural immersion programme gives you the experience of day-to-day life with an Italian family, sharing experiences and in many cases having the opportunity to take part in family activities. Global Project families are located in many regions of Italy although most placements are offered in the surrounding region of Venice or in the Naples region.

As most weekends will normally be free you will also have plenty of time to travel. Local trains and buses run to most areas of Italy and fast trains leave from Venice and other major cities to other European countries -  a weekend away in Germany, Croatia or France is just a hop, skip and a jump!
