Framed in the person-centered work model, and therefore, taking into account the desires and capabilities of the people we serve, we have designed a project based on voluntary itineraries inclusive where the person who participates performs tasks of volunteering in areas of interest. The protagonist of today is Víctor Gala, who has volunteered for CEE Font de l'Abella.

I am Andrea, I am 24 years old, I live in Girona and I am a member of the Occupational Center of the Ramon Noguera Foundation.
From January 17 this year I go every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Tasting Workshop.
There I do a little bit of everything, I sweep it, clean it, scrub the floor, clean the showcase, the store ... I like to have everything clean. I also put the dishwasher, look after the customers and I serve the tables.

Andrea's interest in conducting this volunteer itinerary at the Tasting Tasting Workshop arose as a result of the practices she carried out while studying the training capsule of Hospitality during the months of September and October of 2017.
He liked both the experience that, when finalized, demanded that he be able to have continuity.
From the Occupational Therapy service, where Andrea is a user, this demand was made possible, creating a voluntary agreement with the Tasting Workshop.
Andrea has been present since January of 2018, every Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
She is very happy, cheerful and cheerful. He verifies that he does everything and explains how time flies.
I highly value the attendance at the Tasting Workshop because it is generating many benefits to you. There are tasks of responsibility that favor your personal development and give you more security and confidence.
This experience is also generating a learning of transversal competences that you can apply in your day to day and in all areas.
In short, during these months I have seen Andrea happy to participate and that is the most important thing.
Never forget to go through reception and address to say hello or say goodbye; Anyway, if they are busy, with a lot of education, they say goodbye to the person who opens the door. It is an experience that we value very positively for all the parties involved.
VÍCTOR GALA User of the Montilivi Occupational Center and volunteer at CEE Font de l'Abella
In March of 2017 I began to volunteer at CEE Font de l'Abella. I go there every Monday and Tuesday from 12 a.m. to 1 p.m.
I collaborate in dining room tasks: stop table, put on cutlery, glasses and napkins for young children. I also address the stories in the library; Children often leave it a little messy. I like to go there and help.
I have very good memories of when I was a student: it was small and I had a great time with all the classmates, especially with Àlex Mijarra, with whom we used to play basquet.
When I arrive at 12 o'clock, the children are in the playground playing basketball and football, I like to talk to Andreu (schoolchildren).
Going out of school volunteers makes me feel very happy and happy, it's a very good experience. I want to keep going for a long time!
