Giving back to the Florentine community
At ISI Florence we are passionate about immersion! And volunteering is not only one of the best ways to meet locals and delve into the local culture and society, but it also allows you to give back to the host city that will be your home for the next four months – Florence. Your assistance, skills, and abilities will be greatly appreciated as you help Florence build a better community.
Volunteering also has many rewards for you as well. It provides a growing sense of satisfaction, confidence, and belonging, as you take part in something worthwhile. Moreover, you can demonstrate to potential employers that you used your time abroad in a meaningful way to grow and learn a lot about yourself. And of course, you will meet interesting people, and build deep friendships through what many students have called a “must-do altruistic experience”. Even if it’s something not grand, volunteer projects no matter how small are always inspirational and meaningful.
