We are looking for 300 dynamic and motivated Volunteers to help us bring joy and fun to children and teenagers with MPS, as well as their non-affected siblings, that will attend the Symposium.

 

WHY?

To facilitate that their parents attend the scientific sessions, knowing that their children are in good hands and having fun.

 

HOW MANY CHILDREN WILL ATTEND?

It is expected approximately 150 children of all ages, both affected and non-affected sibling.

 

WHAT TYPE OF ACTIVITIES ARE BEING ORGANIZED?

The symposium will take place at the Convention Centre of the Hotel Hesperia Tower, where we have reserved 3 big meeting rooms to organize fun activities of all types, such as crafts, workshops, games, yoga, gym or film sessions. We are also considering some excursions to places such as Barça Museum, Barcelona Aquarium, Barcelona Olympic Museum, Tibidabo Amusement Park, Cosmo Caixa, Bowling etc...

We are currently working on the social program, please let us know if you can offer a workshop or have any ideas about interesting activities we can offer the kids.  

 

WHAT TYPE OF TASKS WILL YOU BE ASSIGNED?

Depending on your degree of experience you will be assigned to one position or another. However, mostly what will be required from volunteers will be to play with the kids, supervise the activities that are taking place, assist children and teenagers whenever required and mostly make sure that they are having fun in a safe manner.

 

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

Everybody can volunteer! However, we are looking for fun people, that are responsible and have a positive attitude towards children to bring them joy and happiness.

Some experience with children and young people supervising games and leisure activities.

We also welcome medical students, nurses, physiotherapist, social workers, yoga teachers, magicians, teachers, etc…

If you will attend the Symposium and would like to volunteer, please get in touch with us and let us know how many hours you will be able to lend us a hand with the Children’s & Youth Program.
