If you are an immigrant or the child of an immigrant, you have experience in colaborating with associations and you wish to become a leader to support the migrant community, this Citizenship School is the space to do it. The ultimate goal: to educate yourself to defend diversity as a social value, to train yourself to be a new example for social change.
This call to participate in the Citizenship school for immigrants in the Valencian Community is developed as part of the Next Network project, led by Jovesólides and in which the Space Obert el Marítim and the Association for Cooperation between communities (ACOEC) also participate.
