Volunteers are at the core of the work accomplished by Vamos Adelante each year.
The volunteers who have enjoyed their experience the most have been people with four to six years of Spanish. They have been able to get along very well with others—especially others of a different culture—enjoyed hard work and have been able to write and read both languages. They have been people of at least 22 years of age, who had previous experience in third world countries.
As it takes three to six months to understand a culture, we have found a win-win situation requires a six to twelve month visit.
