CEA Florence Study Abroad Students Volunteer at Local School

The Global Campus in Florence this semester is marking many successful “firsts” for its “CEA C’È” initiative. CEA C’È is the volunteer program that enables Florence students to reach out in many ways to their host city and community. Translated from Italian, c’è means “is there.” Pronounced ch-āy, it is a very useful phrase to know when conversing in Italian, and also gives the local listener an insight into the goals of this initiative.

Students involved in CEA C’È choose their volunteer activities according to the level of commitment they are able to offer - some require weekly interaction while some require occasional involvement. The activities range from cleaning up a beloved Florentine piazza, to teaching English to Florentine school children, to spending a late afternoon with local retirees eager to share their life stories. This semester, 15 students are volunteering on a weekly basis. Fifteen others have offered to help in one-time activities.

Five CEA Florence Fall 2010 students were involved in the recent initiative to teach Italian 3rd graders all about the American holiday, Halloween. The youngsters were treated to cupcakes, face painting, songs, and an afternoon of trick-or-treating around the school's administrative offices!
