About the local hosting organizationVillarejoeduca is a local association of Villarejo de Salvan?s, a town in the southeast of Madrid. It was created by families, students, neighbours, institutions ... all of them with a great desire to spread good principles in society. Under the slogan 'EDUCATION IS TRANSFORMATION', they organize activities that somehow solve the problem of lack of opportunities for this area of the Community of Madrid. Values such as tolerance, respect, coexistence, cooperation, peace, and freedom are guiding principles in all these activities. Villarejoeduca wants, in collaboration with the City Council, to repeat the experience of a workcamp that took place years ago in one of the archaeological sites of the village.
About the volunteer workVolunteers, previously trained by a team of archaeologists, will assist in a number of archaeological works such as excavation of trial trenches and processing of found materials. No experience is required, but please, understand that this is an outdoor physical work in a rural area.
Local accommodationVolunteers will be lodged in the hall of the public sports center (mattresses will be laid on the floor), so please, bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. There are baths and showers in the building.
