In a space kindly provided by the University of Aveiro, the session was attended by Agora Aveiro’s Vice-President, Liane Carvalho, and Project Manager, Helder Berenguer, who, guided by their good mood, briefly presented the association. This was followed by the testimony of three members, who shared with the audience their experiences and what they learned, including in Youth Exchanges. After this, there was time to answer some questions. It ended over snacks, with a more informal discussion between the members of Agora Aveiro and the many interested candidates.

It is with pride and hope that we announce the entry of 13 new volunteers into the team, whom we welcome with open arms. They were marked by their enthusiasm and interest in wanting to be part of something bigger and showed to have seen in Agora Aveiro the perfect opportunity to put their skills for change. Although they come from various parts of the country, their destinies have crossed paths in Aveiro, where they come together to be part of this family.

After this period of recruitment, a welcome session was organized in the garden of Cais da Fonte Nova, where a set of activities, icebreakers, energizers and team buildings were held to create and develop a relaxed and fun environment, favorable to interaction and companionship. In the end, everyone sat down to share some snacks, a contribution from each of the participants.

To our new volunteers: the best luck in the world in this new journey! Join, with no fear, this team that is ready to welcome, help and work with you.
