Our European Volunteers
Every year we welcome a team of young volunteers trough European Voluntary Service and soon trough European Solidarity Corps (supported by the ERASMUS+ program of EU) who call Amarante home for a year. They are from different countries, backgrounds and interests, but united by diversity and team spirit. Besides developing different activities in our network of local partners (Schools, Senior University, Santa Casa Elderly Center, Cercimarante — occupation center for people with disabilities, Animal Shelter, Organic producers, etc..), the EVS team is behind most of our cultural agenda composed by cultural and sport classes or other workshops.
And guess what – they are with free access.
