Volunteer needs to be interested in work with young people, motivation and enthusiasm to cooperate with them. For this place there is a strong preference for a person that likes to organize his/her own job and is able to come up with ideas, priority will be given to those whom have had volunteering experiences before. We do appreciate creative people who might have interesting hobbies to be able to organize workshops with the users of the youth centre. Basic level of Spanish would be very helpful. Many of our users are part of arabic speaking communities, so also some knowledge of Arabic would be supportive (but not mandatory!) for us.
