Summer volunteer programs: solidarity projects of CEU Universities

Studying at CEU Universities is much more than receiving education to obtain a Degree, Postgraduate or Master. Life at campus nourishes from cultural, social and sport activities as well as from entrepreneurship and volunteer work. These are initiatives that perfectly match the service-minded and commitment to people most in need values of CEU. No wonder, the Articles of Fundación Universitaria San Pablo CEU mention among its purposes, the construction of a more just and fraternal society through the service to the common good.

Therefore, volunteer work, solidarity and cooperation are very present through different campaigns, field works, conferences and other proposals. These are highly valuable initiatives for our students as they reinforce their self-esteem, help them improve their skills to work in teams and practice what they have learned in class improving their employability. In other words, it is possible to learn and help at the same time. This is how we achieve a real comprehensive education.
