One Thought to “Call for ESC volunteer in Portugal”

  1. I’m finishing high school this summer. I’m open for opportunities and I’m ready to take a gap year if needed. I’ve never had a volunteering that took more then 1.5 months. I’m from Armenia, I speak English freely. I’m responsible, hardworking and open-minded. I hope you’d choose me, it’ll be a great opportunity for me.
