Service Opportunities In Bologna

Italy Center students who are interested in service opportunities will be delighted to hear that we offer numerous placement sites around the city. Due to the fact that Bologna is such a diverse city full of opportunities, we have created many partnerships with local immigrant communities, political groups, non-for-profit organizations, NGO’s, and everything in between. The list of service options continues to grew every day so it is hard to keep updated but we have listed a few of the more common placements below. To find out more about these opportunities, contact us and we will put you in touch with our staff member who is dedicated to this area of development.

Students who have scholarships that require service hours to retain will be able to do so while in Italy. Please contact us directly and notify us of your requirements.
