Building bridges between Europe and Latin America in the field of International Voluntary Service
“Learning Bridges to Youth Empowerment, Creativity and Participation” is a project funded by the European Union through the Youth in Action Programme (Action 3.2).

The material will be collected in a booklet published in English and Spanish, and spread at local and international level.
