The volunteers of the camps will be active about 5/6 hours a day with different tasks and they will be organized daily in two rotating groups. A group will take care of the activities at the Greek Theater (reception and order service 8.30 am-01.30 pm) while another group will take care of the activity at the Youth Hostel for the lunch organization and for the afternoon cultural activities dedicated to the actors (11.30am-4.30pm).
Volunteers will go to live in a hostel with comfortable rooms. There will be a kitchen where they can cook independently. There is no canteen service but the volunteers will have to cook on their own or choose to have lunch (lunch only) with the actors who will be guests of the hostel during the camps. The food for the kitchen will be provided by us and if there are special requests we will try to satisfy them. The hostel has been recently renovated and has bathrooms and showers. We will supply sheets and blankets or other things if necessary.
Palazzolo is a quiet town of 9000 inhabitants and is located 30km from the most beautiful beaches in Sicily! (DO NOT FORGET THE SWIMSUIT !!) During the work period there will be a very strong sun so there is a risk of burns. In the evening, you will have fun in the pubs and in the most visited places of the town, which is full of architectural and naturalistic beauties. There will be games and entertainment to spend the evenings with the local group …. we will not get bored!
The project includes two international volunteer camps that will take place from May 9 to 23 and from May 20 to June 3 together with local volunteers of the "Consulta Giovanile Palazzolo Acreide" and "Fare Palazzolo". The idea is to manage the " International Festival of Classical Theater for Young People " which has been performed regularly for 25 years in Palazzolo, a UNESCO heritage site, at the Ancient Greek Theater of Akrai. The purpose is to support the management of the festival and the 80 schools that will participate in the festival. The volunteers of the workcamps will take care of the reception of the young actors who will play in those days. The aim is to coordinate the whole event only with an young and motivated group of people, who will have during the experience the opportunity to match with more than 1600 actors/young people from all over the world.
