Somos21 is extremely fortunate to have incredible volunteers who help us promote greater connection and collaboration between students, professionals, and businesses/organisations across Australia and Latin America.
Each month we will feature the story of a Somos21 volunteer who has made a difference to our organisation and shares in our passion to be a leading catalyst for personal, professional, and social impact across Australian and Latin American communities.
Get inspired by the stories of Somos21 Volunteers that are engaging, impactful, and making a difference.
