With the help of our staff and your regular dedication, you can get to know and learn Italian culture by building some real relations which will make your online program abroad even more meaningful. Also, it will allow you to get involved in an international environment. The CAPA Florence Service Learning includes 2 options, to better meet your preferences. Both are volunteer, therefore subject to availability which varies every semester. These projects were developed in country, but we offer an online version of some of them which is run via Zoom, at scheduled times.
