Madrid, Spain - Serve the City Madrid

I spent ten weeks in Madrid, Spain working for Serve the City Madrid to develop the Community Dinner project. The project’s model comes from Lisbon, where Serve the City Lisbon has seen change take place due to the positive influence of the project on both individual lives and on policy decisions. The purpose of Community Dinners is to provide a place where social service workers and the marginalized can form authentic relationships that will empower the at-risk to reengage with society and positively shape the social service sector. I was responsible for fundraising, volunteer coordination, finding community support, and managing all the details that will come together to form a Community Dinner.
