YOU

Volunteer

Hello! I am a graduate in social work and have worked in the field of children and youth.

During these years, I have grown as a professional through my volunteerings, my education and my contact with young people, being very enriching all these experiences for me.

I am a person with enthusiasm, creativity and closeness, which complement with a high degree of responsibility to accompany you during your volunteer experience.

Back

Hello! I am a graduate in social work and, as SW, I have worked with different groups (immigration, people living on the streets, prostitution, primary care, prison, women, drug dependence and disability).

I have carried out various personal volunteering projects in India, Nepal, Costa Rica, Edinburgh and Panama, where I studied a Master in International Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid. In my native Mallorca I have also worked as a volunteer in various community organizations.

I put tons of positive energy in all the projects I undertake. I am active and dynamic and I will pass my enthusiasm to meet the volunteer experience on you.

Back

As a volunteer I have a lot of qualities that sometimes even I know I have.

I am a caring person with a great deliverability and commitment. I face volunteering with a positive attitude, with an open mind and, above all, with respect for others.

I want to live an international volunteer experience because I love to learn, share and enjoy new experiences. I consider it an extraordinary opportunity to meet new people, new cultures and realities and, why not, learn a new language.
