C.I.F. main objectives are:

  • to increase professional knowledge in the field of human services (in particular social work) by learning from one another;
  • to increase the understanding of the world's diverse cultures through contact among the participants themselves and so contribute to promote world peace.

         The program includes

  • Introductory phase

The introductory phase give the participants the possibility to know and understand salient aspects of the Italian social and political life, as a background reference to better comprehend the general organization of the social service system. Seminars, meetings and agency visits are utilized to present the different realities. The participants also have the opportunity to exchange information about their own Countries.

  • Fieldwork experience

Placements in the areas previously indicated are offered for a second period in various parts of Italy. Due to the limits of time and the language barrier during this phase, the participant will probably have the role of a mere observer. The combination itself of study, fieldwork, exchange, reciprocal learning and teaching on an international level gives the program its unique and peculiar characteristics.

  • Final evaluation

In the last three-day phase, the participants express their ideas and feelings on the whole experience.

  • Other activities

During the program, there is the possibility to live informal moments (social reunions, meals, social activities, etc.) that altogether represent other significant occasions for further interpersonal exchanges. So far our experience has been successful in creating the right conditions to allow people to get to know each other as people with full respect and appreciation for differences.
