International volunteering


The Aristos Campus Mundus international summer volunteering programmes were also presented during this event.  “Our all-round education is strongly tied to the possibility of knowing another reality of our world”, Carlos Prieto, Director of Comillas Volunteering explained.  The aim is to “make your world experience worthwhile”, he said.  


Peru, Kenya, Chile, Brazil are the destinations included in the programmes, each aimed at various student profiles and a different volunteering experience.   The students who took part in these volunteering experiences last summer talked about the programmes, explained their experience and answered questions from those present.
