The volunteer operators will also be able to take part in two training courses: a general one concerning the values of the Civil Service and a specific training, relating to the activities that the volunteer operator will carry out during the year.

The locations involved will not be only the municipal ones: a numebr of the 86 volunteers will be sent to partner institutions of the City, such as the Civic Museums Foundation, the Biennale, the Foundation Querini Stampalia, the University Pastoral, the Opera Santa Maria della CaritàIPAV and the Agape Onlus Association.
