Volunteers will have many possibilities to get know the children and young people through regular activities but also during special events (camps, trainings, one day events, meetings). During their free time they can make new friendships with local YMCA volunteers (around 30 young people) and other inhabitants – watching movies, doing sports together, visiting, sharing… They will be challenged to realize in practice how unity in diversity enriches the life!
