Learn in the classroom and the neighborhood with the “Conocer dejando huella” program

About 20 students from different faculties have attended the training sessions for volunteers offered by the “Conocer dejando huella” (Learning while leaving a mark) project.  The initiative is part of the University’s outreach program carried out in the Egypt District as part of its social responsibility and allows students to learn in the classroom and the neighborhood.

“Conocer dejando huella” – a FIGRI initiative to connect with the Egypt District

Every week, volunteer students from various Externado de Colombia University programs, go up to the Egypt district “La Divina Providencia” nursing home to spend an afternoon with the grannies living in this household. This is just one of the initiatives currently being developed under the Professional Volunteer Program.
