Non-formal education for rural youth

Non-formal education is a powerful alternative to traditional educational methods, focused on experiential learning and the development of key competencies. In our projects you can learn by doing, develop personally and professionally in international environments in which we talk about topics as varied as entrepreneurship, history, cultural expression, and all kinds of social issues.

International Erasmus+ projects

Since 2019, we are proud to offer international Erasmus+ mobility opportunities to the youth of Valdeorras and El Bierzo. The Erasmus+ program is a unique opportunity to travel abroad in non-formal education environments for young people, offering new spaces for socialization, critical look and discovery of new and interesting people from very diverse countries.

Volunteering and training courses

We want to encourage the youth of Valdeorras to dream of a green and sustainable future for our region. To put an end to the trend of depopulation and rural abandonment, we are committed to innovation and the creation of new initiatives with which young people can feel truly proud of choosing to live in Valdeorras. To this end, we organize projects based on local themes, with feet on the ground and that allow us to directly address the problems and concerns of young people.

Promotion and sustainable development of Valdeorras

We work to promote and make Valdeorras known to the world, a rural region located in Galicia that hides treasures such as its fascinating wine tradition or the Winter Way of St. James. We are committed to education and awareness for a change towards a sustainable development model, to preserve everything that makes us unique and to promote Valdeorras and its heritage among young people.
