Padre Damian. Social centre for homeless
Description: CARITAS-Salamanca runs a home/centre for homeless adult people where they offer not only temporary shelter but personalized approaches for achieving self-autonomy and wellbeing. They welcome volunteers to enhance the social life of the centre and give in return a further vision of the meaning of poverty and social exclusion in so called rich countries. Volunteers greatly value the opportunity to show their solidarity and better understanding of a complex problem which is usually invisible in our society.
Type of Work: The volunteers will share the daily life and activities in the Centre divided in three main chores: •Giving a hand in the kitchen and in the dining-room or laundry, renovation, painting, cleaning and maintenance. •Joining workshops, group dynamics, and outdoor visits. •Socializing with the guests.
Study Theme: Reflexion on social exclusion and homelessness in Europe.
Accommodation: Own room at the centre, shared bathroom, basic conditions.
Language: High level of Spanish is essential.
Requirements: We are looking for a volunteer with sufficient teamwork abilities, compromise with exclusion topics and is a dinamic and proactive person. Experience in previous social workcamps or with excluded collectives will be a plus. We need a motivational letter in order to understand why you would like to join this camp.
Approximate Location: Salamanca (Castilla y León Authonomy)
Notes: Drinking alcohol or smoking in the centre is strictly forbidden.
