INVOLVE, the international volunteer program, is aimed at gathering employees from all the Iberdrola Group subholdings to assist in the development of young people through office automation courses and activities that will encourage cultural exchange for both students and participating volunteers.
By learning to use certain computer programs and traditions from other countries, bonds of friendship are gradually built among attendants during the two weeks of implementation of this initiative both in Mexico and Brazil.
The Iberdrola People did not fall behind and two employees are part of this program in Brazil. Following you may learn more about their experience.
In 2018, Rogelio from the Altamira region, shared on his Twitter profile some of the activities carried out by volunteers with their students, as well as some pictures, during the 12 days of the INVOLVE program.
