Here to Help

Our Mission

The Amigos de Europa Association is based in El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz), although its scope of action is the whole of Andalusia.

Our objectives are:

 – To improve European relations based on a model of sustainable development.
 – To contribute to the conservation and protection of Natural Spaces.
 – To investigate and implement projects that have a special relation with ecotourism, alternative and rural tourism, ecological agriculture and environmental activities or those others that serve as content for the different editions of European Programmes and that have their geographical scope in the European Union.

Because we are convinced that the best strategy to conserve Nature is to promote sustainable development.


We are always at the mercy of reciprocal collaboration with local entrepreneurs using the right practices for mutual benefit. Do not hesitate to contact us to find the best option for us to work together.

Our Organization

AELV since its foundation in 1998 by participants of the Leonardo da Vinci mobility programme has been improving its management system in mobility programmes, both in sending and hosting programmes, participating in conferences and seminars as an example of good management and quality in mobility programmes.

AELV has been committed to the improvement of human resources, increasing professional skills and experiences, in order to prepare young people to face a job in different business fields and to encourage their cultural and personal development.

My name is Iunus and I am 29 years old. I work as a chef specializing in Uzbek, Asian and European cuisine, accumulating over 8 years of valuable experience. Throughout my career I have found that I have excellent organizational and communication skills, which I am eager to use in volunteer opportunities. Language learning is one of my passions and I already speak four languages and plan to learn a fifth. The AELV organization has played an important role in helping me achieve my goals and gain new experiences as a volunteer. I am particularly attracted to their values, which prioritize supporting and educating the younger generation. Being part of the AELV community gives me immense joy and satisfaction.



My name is Veronika and I am from Slovakia.
I previously worked in an elementary school as an after-school teacher and with children with special needs.
Coming to Jerez and volunteering with AELV is one of the best decisions of my life. I learned new things, improved my interpersonal skills and learned Spanish. At the same time, I appreciate the work I am doing to promote EU mobility opportunities among local youth.



I am Nurjona, an EFL teacher and researcher from Albania, interested in EU education and youth policies. I strongly believe that working closely with young people is the best way to create a lasting and positive impact on society. Volunteering with AELV allows me to participate in important conversations about EU values and to learn firsthand about the perspective of local youth. I could not be happier to live in Jerez and learn Spanish while immersing myself in Andalusian culture.
