2024 will be a special year for Volunteering in Trentino, the city of Trento in fact will be for a year the European Capital of Volunteering. There will be initiatives, meetings, activities, exchanges of ideas between volunteers and voluntary organizations.

Associazione Trentini nel mondo participates with enthusiasm because volunteering has always been among its fundamental values.

We would like to take this opportunity to show all the Trentino people the strength, the beauty and the value of volunteering of the Trentino Clubs and the Trentino people living abroad. Through the actions of the Associazione we can feel part of a single large community that knows, helps and grows through mutual exchange.

We therefore invite you to participate in the Calls "Volunteering and active citizenship" during the year 2024. There are two special calls:

-  Call "Volunteering and active citizenship - Circoli Trentini" reserved for young people (18-35) working in the Circoli;

-  Call "Volunteering and active citizenship – New Emigration" reserved for groups of new emigrants from Trentino living abroad (available only in Italian language)

Call for "volunteering and active citizenship – Trentino Clubs”

Associazione Trentini nel mondo makes available to the Trentino Clubs a funding for the realization of voluntary initiatives and active citizenship with the aim of:

  • Encouraging participation of young people within Trentino Clubs;
  • Give visibility to the activities of the Trentino Clubs within the communities where they operate;
  • Promoting the culture of volunteering and active citizenship.

  • Solidarity with disadvantaged people or groups;
  • raising awareness of social issues;

  • Initiatives to improve public spaces;
  • Initiatives for civic training, participation and education on issues of social importance.


Requirements for participation

The following requirements are required in order to participate:
