Youth is one of the core idea for the action in Fundación Senara, with more than 50 Spanish and European Youth Associations belonging to our “RED JOVEN”we favour the exchange of experiences and cohabitation between Young people from different cities and situations. With the projects addressed to young people we support, designs and contribute to programmes that enrich their personality and development.
In2008we started to work in EU programs and we started to be part of the European Voluntary Servicethat encourages the exchange with volunteers of different countries of the UE.
The volunteering of the Foundationis structured around the fields where we develop the programs, we address to families receiving the minimum incomeand with children at risk of social exclusion. In addition, lots of volunteers help technically by providing their knowledge and experience in specific activities of every project, either as trainers in workshops, employment technicians or program developers.
Involvement with social reality leads to a high level of commitment that benefits the users of the projects
We want to raise awareness of the peripheral realities of the surroundings in order to create a more caring and participative society. Currently, we can offer you to contribute as a volunteer in assistance areas of childhood and woman, or with your time in the following areas:
- Supporting research works
- Revision of documents
- Administrative tasks
