Universal Civil Service - Civil Peace Corps

CVCS with FOCSIV is an accredited body to participate in calls for the selection of volunteers of the Universal Civil Service and the Civil Peace Corps.

The Universal Civil Service is the voluntary choice to dedicate a few months of one’s life to the non-armed and non-violent defense service of the homeland, to education, peace among peoples and to the promotion of the founding values of the Italian Republic, through actions for communities and for the territory.

The establishment of the Civil Peace Corps represents an almost absolute novelty in the European and world panorama, an experimental model that aims to seek alternative solutions to the use of military force for conflict resolution.

SCU and CCP projects offer young people the opportunity to live an experience of solidarity in Italy or abroad, to experience their skills and competences, as well as to enrich themselves personally and professionally.

CVCS proposes SCU projects in Italy, Bolivia and Ivory Coast and for CCP in Ivory Coast.

To apply for the selection, you must:

  • wait the publication of the Calls that will be available on the website;
  • consult the CVCS projects that will be published on our website and on the FOCSIV website to choose the one that best suits your profile;
  • verify that you meet the requirements;

send the application following the instructions contained in the Call.


CVCS has been hosting internships for some years under agreements signed with the University of Trieste, the University of Udine and other training institutions, with the aim of encouraging the involvement of young people in the areas of competence and at the same time satisfying the needs of support for their activities.

A quality internship, guaranteed by the support of an expert tutor and moments of supervision and monitoring, offers a high professional value.
