ACLI present themselves, legally, as a "social promotion association": a widespread and organized system on the territory that promotes the culture of work and workers, educates and encourages active citizenship.
ACLI supports citizens, in particular those that are in conditions of marginalization or at risk of social exclusion.
As authoritative of organized civil society, ACLI are protagonists in the world of so-called "third sector": the voluntary, non-profit, social enterprise.
ACLI is a complex system of economic activities and volunteer activities that have been and are
an effective and vital factor of cohesion and social development in our communities. Education is the best way to understand the present and prepare the future, while services are the integrated response to the needs and people´s citizenship rights.
ACLI are organized like a pyramid, from national headquarters to the basic facilities (clubs), real garrisons in the territory. ACLI Florence is the provincial level acts on the territory of the province of Florence, by networking with organizations and other associations thanks to the work of many volunteers.
In the province of Florence and ACLI are about 3,000 members in 20 clubs.
