Itaka Training


Itaka Training

Itaka Training is an organisation which was born following an analysis of the needs of what is happening at present in the areas were the organization is located, being particularly sensitive to issues related to migration, and the problems that migrants face once they arrive in Italy from desperate situations. In these respect, Itaka training is made up by professionals dedicated to build trust in peoples from different countries and motivates them to fulfill their potential in a welcoming and stimulating environment. Itaka Training promotes active citizenship at local, national and international level and the safeguard of moral and civic rights of citizens.

The organization has been inspired by the work of Domenico Lucano, MAyor of Riace a small village locate in Calabria wha has been recently listed by the American journal "Fortune" among the 50 more influent people in the field of migrants and refugee.




"For decades emigration drained life from Riace, a village of 2,000 on the Calabrian coast. When a boatload of Kurdish refugees reached its shores in 1998, Lucano, then a schoolteacher, saw an opportunity. He offered them Riace’s abandoned apartments along with job training. Eighteen years on, Mayor Lucano is hailed for saving the town, whose population now includes migrants from 20-some nations, and rejuvenating its economy. (Riace has hosted more than 6,000 asylum seekers in all.) Though his pro-refugee stance has pitted him against the mafia and the state, Lucano’s model is being studied and adopted as Europe’s refugee crisis crests." "FORTUNE March 2016"

The organization staff has also experience in the management of EU projects, in providing work experience, training and professional development courses for professionals under the KA1 project. We organise professional development courses for people involved in education who want to acquire new competences. Courses include digital classrooms, Integration and Social inclusion, school management, teaching through arts activities and entrepreneurship.
