Projects carried out by volunteers are primarily group activities, which are valuable because they: help youth with acquiring teamwork skill, teach to compromise and to solve the conflicts. In addition, they influence discipline and the ability to observe the environment and they shape attitudes of sensitivity, openness, empathy and solidarity.
