For the last soft skills article, we leave a skill that we consider to be one of the most important: Teamwork

Teamwork is not just about contributing effectively to a group working towards a common goal. It is being able to share knowledge and actions, expertise, and ways of working. It is being able to build strong bonds with colleagues and to sustain each other. It is being open to new opinions and understanding that we are building together. Teamwork and its importance is a living reflection of the relevance of community work and moving away from individualistic practices.

We understand teamwork as more than just a skill: it is one of the values we work with. Teamwork is part of our vision. It's about understanding that together we can build something better.

The volunteer will always be immersed in a group work environment, both in the organization itself and in the specific project. One of the objectives is that the volunteer can have a better understanding of how we work, how the organizations work. And, of course, that they can be part of that: preparing lunch for the community, doing activities for the children in the pre-school, distributing the tasks in the gardening project, teaching classes, and having a support team always. From preparing lunch for the community, doing activities for the children in the pre-school, distributing the tasks in the gardening project, teaching classes, and having a support team always. Doing volunteer work implies a direct immersion in teamwork and is one of the most representative things of this experience.
