Nuovi Orizzonti is an association working in the field of youth discomfort, helping people to get out from different kinds of addiction. Thanks to twenty years of experience in the field we can maintain that many of the issues connected to the use of alcohol or drugs come from negative experiences and traumas experienced during childhood. For this reason we aim to start a project to protect many children who are in a disadvantaged position, belonging to immigrant families and/or at risk of educational poverty due to economic, social, psycho-physical and cultural disadvantages, referring in particular to the municipality of Frosinone.

This project, named "Happy Childhood", includes two European volunteers, one of whom belong to groups at risk of social exclusion, aged between 17 and 30, coming from Spain and Greece and will be held in Frosinone, one hour from Rome, for a period of 12 months. The territory of Frosinone was chosen because we observed a strong increase of episodes of bullying and juvenile microcriminality (+ 13% during last year).

Therefore, at the "Cittadella Cielo", headquarters of Nuovi Orizzonti in Frosinone, we want to start up a special space dedicated to kids and youngsters where they will be able play safely and parents be connect with specialists of evolutionary age. The two SVE participants will have the opportunity to interact with these children, contributing to the creation of a serene climate and helping them to play game and educational activities that may be useful for their serene growth.

Volunteers will also enjoy private language lessons in Italian, and can speed up their learning through this specific type of relationship, since the language used by children aged 0 to 6 is more elementary, facilitating those who have to learn a new language. All project activities will be conducted in a non-formal way and will activate communication skills for young people and the ability to manage socio-educational activities through familiarization with non-formal education. Volunteers, experiencing this social initiative will discover the values of volunteering, becoming sensitive and will deep the knowledge of themselves and develop the ability to deal with new situations that require a quick reaction.
