At SCI Madrid we work to promote peace, multiculturalism and rapprochement between people through the practice of volunteering. Thanks to being part of the vast SCI International network, we can offer workcamps in more than 100 countries around the world, a perfect way to practice languages.
But you don’t have to go far to volunteer. For years we have been collaborating with entities within Spanish territory that carry out various actions, such as caring for people with different abilities or supporting unpopulated areas. So if what you would like is to contribute your grain of sand in a field of work in Spain, be sure to review our latest vacancies:
