Elena is a volunteering and learning specialist and she believes in social action as a powerful tool for civic engagement within society. She is passionate about her work and it is tremendously rewarding for her to be able to motivate a volunteer workforce to perform in line with the vision, mission and values of an organisation.

These roles have spanned countries including France and Nicaragua as well as the UK, allowing her to work with global organisations and form partnerships across borders, languages and cultures.

She is highly passionate about working with young people to empower them and enhance their skills and knowledge.
