Ilaria Zocco


My name is Ilaria, I am from Italy and I am fond of pizza (gluten free ^_^) and Europe!
I love reading books and travelling… with many clothes … yes…I know that hand luggage is the best option!
I am a smiling and an enthusiastic trainer because I strongly believe in the power of Youth Workers!
I am interested in recognition of non-formal learning and I know how precious are for young people the opportunities of mobility financed by Erasmus Plus Programme

Ilaria Zocco has 3 references for past work as a trainer.
