Organize leisure activities for children related to art and sport. They will be placed in workshops with a specific duration depending on each individual volunteer’s stay.

Organize activities for youth exchange alongside the other volunteers.
Since the program includes the animation of afterschool activities there is also the possibility to carry out activities during the weekend.
Volunteers will have weekly meetings to discuss various topics in order to understand and complement their social intervention as volunteers. Besides, we aim to provide them with a complete social, historical, political and economic background.
