As 2017 arrives, we’re already looking for motivated volunteers to co-ordinate an international volunteer group on our UK projects in the summer. If you’re up for a challenge, enthusiastic about volunteering, want to learn new skills, meet new people and boost your CV, then why not become a Concordia Co-ordinator? We are now recruiting for our  Co-ordinator training weekend taking place on the 11th-12th March 2017. This will prepare you for becoming a project leader of an international volunteer group in the UK during our summer programme.
