Interns will be assigned responsabilities depending on their personal abilities and the needs of the program at the moment.  Many volunteers are responsible for helping systematize manuals for grassroots educators for workshops with youth on various themes such as environment, analysis of Salvador reality, economic alternatives, gender, human rights, etc. Depending on the time of year, they are also often in charge of translating profiles for scholarship recipients in order to share data with donors.
