Want to have fun in a small village and become part of it for a few days? Want to mix the traditional AEGEE spirit and the wild parties and be a volunteer?
Want to discover a different SU? If so, join us! 15 years ago, AEGEE-Zaragoza organized the first Volunteering Summer University (VSU). Fortunately for you… this year we want to bring it back to life! The VSU concept comprises everything you can find in a typical SU, plus some extra activities such as working with children, theater, puppets, juggling, music or fancy dressing, aimed to bring the young spirit to a small traditional town of our region for a few days. We will organise interactive activities like theatre plays, pantomime, games and songs and all these will be offered to the people in some villages in our region, Aragón. But also, you will be able to get in contact with them and feel their warm hospitality.
Don’t miss this opportunity of discovering the deep Spain and bonding with their locals! But this isn’t all! We will start our adventure in Zaragoza… The Old Kingdom of the Dragon is waiting for you! We might not have beaches, but we can assure you that you will not miss them at all. Or do you think that more than 20 centuries of history and culture, stunning countryside, breathtaking monuments and plenty of sun aren’t enough? Come and enjoy some of the most beautiful places in Aragón, our region: the medieval villages of Albarracín and Alquézar are considered some of the most beautiful villages of Spain! Or maybe you want to get in love with the “Lovers of Teruel”? You will have the time of your life with us in the Amusement Park of Zaragoza, hiking, chilling at the spa, tasting the best Spanish wines and many other activities. And what to say about the legendary and wildest parties in Zárágózááááá, the center of the known Universe? Have you heard about our unique Pub Crawl? You will try the best homemade Sangría during our sleepless nights out. You can’t miss our European Night, Fake New Year’s Eve Night and many other thematic parties with the craziest disorganizers!. Are you interested in LGTB, Gender Equality and Sexual Education? If that concerns you, come, learn and discuss with us! Open your mind, be crazy, express yourself in many different ways, make great friends and share unforgettable memories in our SU with other 27 lucky participants!

Albarracín

Ready to travel in time? This 1,000 inhabitants town was declared National Monument in 1961 and is currently proposed by UNESCO to be declared a World Heritage Site. In the Middle Ages, it became the capital of its own Muslim Kingdom with an extraordinary castle still standing from that old period. Besides that building, the surrounding walls, the magnificent wooden mansions, the passages and alleys and the landscape will take you back without any effort to the Medieval Age. All these small details make Albarracín to be considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.

The most significant monuments are the big church, its Castle and the breath-taking sights of the surroundings you can enjoy from them. It’s a perfect place for hiking and going on excursion through nature.

Villages of Aragon

“Spain might be renowned for its coast and beaches, but it is also home to dozens of quaint little towns that give Spain the charm that deserves.
We will have to move to Aragón’s deep villages to feel the real heart of our country. With and a location suggestive of a secret redoubt, the places we will go have the quality of a quiet and intimate fairytale.
There is something timeless about this places, surrounded by the hospitality of the villagers who will treat you even better than their grandchildren, we assure you you’ll be able to feel there is some kind of magic during those days of the SU”
