Hi everyone! I'm Francisca from Spain and I’m a new volunteer in Cardiff.

I’m a part of EVS (European Voluntary Service). It’s a program, co-funded by the European Commission, that provides opportunities for young people like us to acquire or improve skills for our personal, educational and professional development. I think that it’s a really good idea for learning and looking for new perspectives in our lives.

In my case, my coordinating organisation in Wales is UNA Exchange. They rent a house in the city for me and for another four volunteers from different countries who are working in other projects and companies and they will take care of us throughout our volunteering here. So, everything is going to be perfect!

I’m very lucky because I’ll work in ProMo-Cymru for the next eleven months and I'll be with the team that supports the CLIC project. I'm really happy with this program because it's a new opportunity for learning about communication solutions, media and cultural developments with youth people.

I really want to do this volunteering. It will be nice, I'm sure, so I'll bring all my energy to ProMo-Cymru! Ready... steady... GO!

Hola Francisca! :) Welcome to cardiff!
I'm currently in the middle of sorting out my own EVS project, so I'd love to come and talk to you about your experience if you're in the office sometime! :)
