Te inicias en el voluntariado por alguna razón, porque algo “te conmueve” y toca tu fibra más sensible, pero llega un momento en que ese «sentimiento” tiene que pasar a algo más profundo y surge el “QUIERO SER VOLUNTARIO”.

It is a time of our live where we discover a totally different world, we experience unforgettable and incredible moments. We learn to grow, to share, to treasure, to broaden our horizon, to participate, and to understand that each person has his own story.

The children should be aware of the type of exercises and how to do it. The volunteers helps the children with the different exercises and give them reinforcement in reading, writing, mathematics and sciences.
