LIVING IN THE KNOW PODCAST - MARCH 2017
Lisa and Catherine discuss volunteering opportunities in the region. They explain how volunteering is a great way to meet new people if you have just arrived in Switzerland, and highlight how helpful it can be for getting to know different clubs, communities and groups whilst assisting others. Focusing on four main organizations they show how volunteers don't necessarily need to speak French, as some organizations operate in English. Click here to listen now.
