Everything in this cultural exchange will be both for volunteer and association members as the volunteer will do the same functions like an other persons: classification and organization of the books, participation in the ativities of our volunteerings,organization of the materials and documentations. On other way, we want to give an opportunity to the european volunteer to become acquainted with our social and cultural environment.

Another important reasons are a support and help that Youth Association lntercambia offers in the process of the exchange of the volunteer.

What we offer to our volunteers
