The educational and social action performed by the Pere Tarrés Foundation is possible thanks to the engagement and professionalism of a large team of employees and volunteers. The varied nature of the services, projects and activities we carry out shapes a very diverse human team, formed by university teaching staff, management staff, counsellors, educators, etc. This diversity enriches the work we do, providing multiple viewpoints and perspectives that put us more in touch with reality.
Although they sometimes go unnoticed, non-profit organizations are a source of job growth in Catalonia, jobs which have direct implications on caring for people and improving their quality of life. The Pere Tarrés Foundation is a clear example, demonstrated by its place on the list of the 40 organizations that generate the most employment in Catalonia.
Specifically, in 2018 we provided direct employment to 6,224 people, many of whom collaborate with the entity on a part-time basis, with an average of 3,234 people on staff.
Volunteers, a key piece
The volunteers who contribute their commitment, time and knowledge are essential to making the Foundation’s many social and educational projects possible.
