GoSCORP Barcelona aims to attend the social needs in Catalonia and to offer the students a chance to improve their skills and to discover our reality. During two weeks, medical students work in youth centres in Barcelona, organizing an English intensive course for teenagers in risk of social exclusion. We also have 6 different workshops related to the topic, and a cultural and social program. Finally, this year we have also worked on refugees’ welcome and their integration into the society.
