Giving personal care of residents who might need it (such as helping out to get dressed) is also a possible task, but only if you really feel prepared for doing it. An important part of your stay will be socializing with the community of the centre. You have to take into account that you will be living in a therapeutic community.

It is a great achievement for our team to organize many new projects this year to allow young people from different countries to get to know the culture of Spain more closely through the workcamps. As the general epidemiological situation has improved, many organizations are ready to open their doors to volunteers from all over the world. It is a great honor for us to be part of the international exchange programs and promote the ideas of volunteering for peace
