Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to provide the person I host?

The host must provide a private room and board, in compliance with any specific dietary require-ments. In addition to this, the host is required to involve the guest as much as possible in life inside and outside the home, in order to facilitate integration. The Vesta project itself will help in support with cultural, recreational and sports activities, to consolidate and increase the network of relation-ships.

Does the guest have to have a private room?

Yes, it is not possible to accommodate him or her in dormitories, double rooms or in rooms used for other purposes.

What activities can I do as a community assistant?

There are many activities that can be offered to help unaccompanied foreign minors present in the centre, from assisting in tasks to recreational activities outside the community, from Italian lessons to moments of leisure together.
The assistant is free to suggest ideas and activities to be carried out in the community, with the help of the centre’s manager, who can provide support in the creation of socialising events on the basis of the commitments the children have.
