It aims to offer many volunteer opportunities to university students who are attending the universities of Turin and on the whole to the academic world, teachers and administrative staff.

Over 50 voluntary organizations and charities are ready to welcome young volunteers, providing 500 volunteer opportunities and offering them the opportunity to devote their free time to people and to address their needs.

On the website aspiring volunteers can search opportunities through several filters, such as the type of service, the beneficiaries, the time slot, geographical area. Once you make a choice, by filling the form online, you will be contacted by a counselor to make a brief conversation and understand what the best solution – both for the volunteer and for the involved organization – might be. After the interview, you will be put in touch with the chosen organization and with its representatives, in order to start the voluntary work.

The aim is, on the one hand, to offer young people the ability to solve problems and work in teams; on the other, “Servire con Lode” is also a tool to provide the enthusiasm and dynamism, which is typical of the university world, to Voluntary Organizations.

The Chamber of Commerce, the Confindustria of Piedmont and the Politecnico di Torino signed an agreement for the inclusion of students and graduates in companies with principal or secondary offices abroad, because they think that an internship abroad could be a training period that further qualifies the studies at Politecnico.

The competition ended on 30 September and, after examining the proposals, judges decided to give two first prizes ex aequo: one to the group of DAMS students who proposed the project “Movie Club 2.0. Ieri, oggi and domani … al cinema “” and one to the mixed group of students from other faculties proposing the project “DiVisione in Visione“.The two exhibitions will take place at the Hall 3 of Cinema Massimo in the course of 2017.
