CommUnity Bubble Volunteer, Volunteer Scotland CommUnity Bubble
Mauro is originally from the sunny South of Italy. Since coming to Scotland to study in 2016, he decided to make this his permanent home. Mauro’s main volunteer engagement has been with the CommUnity Bubble project which encourages people to get to know each other and to work together to improve their area or to solve any community problems they may have.
He has volunteered to do both admin tasks and help run events in different communities. The events have been his favourite part as they have enabled him to meet local people from different areas and listen to their stories and aspirations.
“Having finished my studies, I was looking for ways to best use my time whilst looking for employment and I thought volunteering would be a great way to put my skills and experience to good use, whilst also providing me with the opportunity to learn more about the different communities in Scotland. I thought this was a great way for me to contribute to the important cause of rebuilding communities whilst at the same time allowing me to meet new people.”
