This means not only, testing the skills already acquired, but also, discovering and learning new ones through interaction and collaboration with others. Interpersonal relationships, as well as the exchange of skills and experience, especially with those who are different from us, are a fundamental step in getting to know ourselves and the world better.

Not only if you are looking for a job, but also if you already have one, volunteering can help you positively. In addition to adding to your CV and experience, if you are new to the world of employment having volunteered will highlight your skills and let those who want to hire you know that you are an altruistic, helpful, active and flexible person. If, on the other hand, you are already employed, volunteering can help to highlight and stimulate your leadership skills and enrich your career.

Offering your work in exchange for a donation is very important for the organisation and much more profitable for you. You don’t have to make a commitment two or three times a week: just helping out at special events, fairs, special sales is enough. Just a few hours per month is enough.

It is possible to meet new friends during a volunteering activity precisely because it creates personal bonds based on mutual cooperation, without any kind of discrimination and eliminating dynamics of competition and careerism.

Why waste time in front of the television or computer? A volunteer experience can positively stimulate your life, making it more dynamic and full of activity. Volunteering puts new ideas into circulation and enriches existing ones. It can be a fun opportunity!


Sometimes we take the community we live in for granted. It is easy to be unaware of the problems that lie behind our city reality. Why not fill this gap through volunteering? Volunteering is ultimately about helping others and having a positive impact on people’s well-being. What better way, then, to connect with one’s community than to give back what it gives us every day?

Travelling allows one to feel free and to get to know the world in which we live. By becoming an Aicem volunteer, it is possible to become part of an association back home or abroad. Through social tourism, in fact, it is possible to travel to various countries at low cost, thus improving oneself and one’s approach to the world.

The hectic life we live every day makes us lose sight of the little things in everyday life, those that make our lives unique and unrepeatable. Often we become entrenched in our own perspective and comfort zone, thanks to volunteering on the other hand, it is possible to drive a change of course and stimulate a greater open-mindedness; this allows us to create new perspectives, overcome certain social barriers, but above all teaches us to say thank you for what we have.

We often do not have the opportunity to experience what we study in the university course.

The traineeship is an important investment for us on both sides. it is a very serious commitment, in which the trainee is fully involved in the association’s activities, taking on responsibilities related to the chosen course but always supported by the volunteer staff.

The internship with AICEM is a path in which the participant is fully involved in the activities of the association, building together a programme that reflects the objectives of the association and the aspirations of the trainee.

Those who choose to do an internship with AICEM choose to get involved, try, fail, and learn, and the AICEM team chooses to make itself available to those who want to undertake this path, through planning, exchanges and feedback.

The internship for AICEM has the function of orienting you.

We are often convinced that we know what profession we want to do in our future but we don’t really know what it is and this can result in great disappointment.

At other times we are less oriented, we feel like we are groping in the dark, and we also feel frightened by not having clear ideas.

The internship for AICEM is an opportunity to try it out, to try it out and decide that we like it or not, to try something we didn’t even know existed. Apprenticeship for AICEM is experimenting in order to be able to choose with awareness.

The internship with AICEM also gives you ideas for your thesis. Have you ever thought of doing a thesis involving associations in other countries? AICEM gives you the possibility to do so, by following our projects, or to create new connections through the association.

The internship can be a first step for you to get in touch with the third sector, with the activities of the association and with the opportunities that exist.

We want to think of the internship as a first step that gives you the opportunity to imagine what we want to achieve and how to achieve it.

The most valuable resource AICEM makes available to its members is a pool of people with different backgrounds and skills.

Trainers, designers, project managers, communication experts, psychologists, language mediators are ready to work together to help strengthen the work of our members.

Are you a member of the association and would like to submit a project but do not know where to start?

AICEM helps its members with a range of services such as searching for calls for proposals, registering with platforms for the submission and management of projects, drafting project proposals and supporting the coordination of local, national and international activities.

Making projects, actions and activities is important, but it is also important to know how to communicate them in the right way!

We are ready to support our members in creating effective communication, and adapted to the target audience to be

Each activity starts from a real need to which a concrete answer is sought.

To do this, AICEM supports the creation of partnerships whose complementary skills can be combined to achieve common goals.

The training journey never ends. For every association, constant training means having the tools to respond effectively to challenges, whether old or new.

This is why organising and sharing online and offline training sessions is a crucial aspect of our work, necessary to make an effective impact.

Learning about what is happening in the third sector, what opportunities exist to support your ideas and what the association is doing is the first step to getting involved.

AICEM members receive a newsletter about current opportunities, but not only.

The association’s communication channels are at your disposal to share your activity or to talk about an issue close to your heart.

Do you have an idea for an activity in line with AICEM’s objectives but don’t know where to start? The association can support you in turning your idea into a concrete initiative.

How? Let us assess together the steps to follow and make our expertise (planning, communication, training) available to our members to take a small step towards the change we want.

Training is important! knowing about training opportunities related to our interests and accessing them is not always simple and straightforward.

We at AICEM share training opportunities in Italy and abroad with our members, supporting those interested in preparing their applications.

Behind every association are the people: the real engine of change. People are the real wealth of AICEM.

Members are constantly informed and participate in the association’s assemblies, helping to make the most important decisions on the goals to be achieved, the activities to be carried out and the resources to be deployed.

Being an AICEM partner means being part of a wide network, a network that can count on the knowledge, skills and tools made available for the realisation of broad objectives.

For AICEM, acting together means having a broader impact, which is why AICEM is always ready to share ideas with its partners and open the door to new partnerships.

Working alone makes it possible to achieve goals, but working together maximises impact to respond more effectively to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

In the increasingly interconnected world in which we live, bringing together what we know how to do and our resources is essential to bring about change that is real and responds to real needs.

AICEM makes its contribution by sharing its experience, its approach, its methodology and through the deployment of a diverse pool of human resources.

They are all part of the same team.

Networking is the winning strategy to respond to real needs. The AICEM is ready for dialogue with all actors, public and private, who recognise and respect human rights.

On this foundation, dialogue and exchange allows us to work together, identifying steps to achieve increasingly distant goals.
