On Friday February 21st, 2014 we celebrated our 5th Youth Congress of Solidarity with students in their 4ºESO and students of the following schools: Colegio Divina Pastora, IES Valler del Tiétar, IES Juana Pimentel.
The aim of the congress is to educate and empower the youth on the importance and strength of citizen participation through sharing real experiences from people who are active in social development.
This time we also had the pleasure to have a Youth Group from England collaborating during the congress. Together we created a very interactive and participative congress. First we started with a presentation of the EVS of our volunteers and then we went on with some dinamics and the presentations of the two organisations (AJS and Young Hackney). To surprise our audience we made a flashmob. Afterwards the pupils had the opportunity to ask questions.
