The Civilian Service is an opportunity given to young people aged between 18 and 28 to concretely participate in the development of civil society. Volunteers offer their energy and enthusiasm and in exchange enrich their background with new experiences and skills, while receiving a small personal allowance.

Calls for projects are launched regularly, and interested people are free to apply. The projects’ length may vary between 3 and 12 months, and cannot be extended.

Applications must be submitted to the organization or body sponsoring the project. Candidates are selected based on an interview, and then involved in the relevant project.

Participants volunteer some 30 hours per week, 5 or 6 days a week.

Benefits for volunteers:

  • a net monthly allowance of 600,00 euro;
  • the opportunity be part of a working environment and to interact with others;
  • hands-on training on civilian service matters and specific skills related to the volunteering project;
  • in kind benefits (university credits, traineeships, paid lunches and so on)

Since 2006, the University of Trento has been registered in the Provincial Register and develops civil service projects.
