Associazione Kora was founded in August 2015 to promote environmental, intercultural and social awareness through projects for young people. Kora coordinates non-formal education projects with Erasmus + and with the European Solidarity Corps, such as training courses, youth exchanges and volunteering projects on various topics in Europe, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
It is based on La Buona Terra school farm, the first educational farm in Italy, with over 30 years of experience in working with children, young people and adults of all ages. La Buona Terra produces organic olive oil, essential oils of various aromatic herbs, and offers environmental education for groups of all ages.

The volunteers will support Kora in the following tasks:

    • Gardening and agriculture: restoring olive trees field, pruning and picking olives, cutting wood for the winter, experiencing, learning and promoting self-production of food as a mean for sustainable living
    • Common cooking
    • Non formal education activities about environmental topics, interculturality and social equality.


Food and accommodation will be covered by the European Commission; the volunteers will have health insurance and pocket money (5 euro per day). Travel expenses will be refunded up until a fixed amount. The volunteers will be accommodated in shared dormitories on the farm premises.

Working hours are from 8 am to 1 pm.


  • Available for the whole duration of the project
  • 18-30 years old
  • Resident in EU member country, Italy included, or Ukraine
  • Motivated and hard working
  • Ready to live in an intercultural context in a rural area, where the closest town with facilities is at 20 minutes on foot
  • Ready to share a room and common moments and spaces with other volunteers
  • Good time management, flexibility, patience, open-mindedness, team-work
  • Basic level in English
  • Previous education and working experiences in the described activities are welcome but not necessary
  • Driving license is welcome but not necessary.

Please note that Kora and La Buona Terra’s main priorities are sharing life in a rural intercultural context, including responsible work and mature behaviour. While we welcome any kind of diversity with open arms and actively support everybody’s personal growth, we are not the appropriate context for laziness, immature attitude, harmful behaviour or spiritual ceremonies.

For this project in particular, we are looking for motivated volunteers that are able to effectively perform outdoor, physical work from 8 am to 1 am, from Monday to Friday: afternoons, evenings and weekends will be free.
