Corporate Volunteers: a different summer with Entreculturas
Some years ago, Entreculturas initiated a new action proposal with private business and institutions: raising awareness to promote solidarity and volunteering.
The concern shown by companies about training their manpower adequately in this area has led us to conduct courses on this subject, both classroom attending and on-line (Internet) .
This educational proposal promotes a reflexion about which values should attract volunteers and about the reality that makes their existence necessary. It is also sought that the persons count with action proposals, personally or collectively, within the enterprise.
María Gómez, an Accenture employee, is one of these people. She will travel this august to Lima (Peru) to collaborate in one of the projects that Entreculturas develop under the umbrella of Fe y Alegría. "I'm excited about getting to know Entreculturas close up and collaborate with the professional volunteer project that I've been offered. It is the first time I do something like this, so I hope that I can contribute my knowledge and working experience to whatever that can use it. I believe that this is going to be a great opportunity to learn another culture and other ways to do things..."she asserts.
In turn, Daniel Fernández a Coritel software developer, will go for almost a month of his holidays to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, where he will assist with the planning and delivery of IT courses, through Fe y Alegría, which is the main Entrecultura's partner in Latin America. "I've done volunteer work in a few social centres in Madrid and given IT and Spanish classes to immigrants, but never have had an international experience. I believe this trip is going to be an excellent opportunity to grow professionally and, above all, personally.
