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 the staff members in the following tasks:

    • Organisation, logistics and intercultural animation of local events aimed at promoting local food products
    • Cooking intercultural tastings
    • Leading traditional dances workshops
    • Leading non formal education workshops about intercultural traditions, environmental sustainability, and food awareness
    • Communication: taking pictures and videos, social media coverage.


Food and accommodation will be covered by the European Commission; the volunteers will have health insurance and pocket money (6 euro per day). Travel expenses will be refunded up until a fixed amount (20 € from 10 to 99 km distance, 180 € from 100 to 499 km, 275 € from 500 km to 1999 km, 360 € if more. The budget is higher for trips that don’t involve flights). The volunteers will be accommodated in big tents on La Buona Terra school farm.

The volunteers will work 35 hours a week with two consecutive free days per week (not always Saturday and Sunday) and 3 extra days of holidays. These hours include 1 hour for a meeting with the coordinator of the activities, that coaches the volunteers on their tasks, 1 hour for a meeting with the mentor, that evaluates the volunteers’ project, satisfaction and learning process.


  • Available for the whole duration of the project
  • 18-30 years old
  • Resident in EU member states, Italy included, Ukraine and Georgia
  • Ready to live in an intercultural context in a rural area, where the closest town with facilities is at 20 minutes on foot
  • Good time management, flexibility, patience, open-mindedness, team-work. This is the first time that Kora collaborates in the organisation of these events, so several things will have to be figured out in progress, and volunteers with such attitudes and skills will definitely represent a plus
  • Basic level in English
  • Previous education and volunteering/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 or spiritual ceremonies.
