This region is well known for the rich, cultural and environmental heritage and vineyard is also a very important activity of the region. From October to June, the volunteer will have the opportunity to work with children and teenagers in different structures that need support around Saint Caprais de Bordeaux. During this project the EVS volunteer will change of structures several times to meet different people and to see different way of working.
