Vuela Program for children of Abengoa employees

The Vuela Program was conceived four years ago with the aim of giving the children of company employees the chance to obtain first-hand knowledge of the company where their parents work, to gain their first practical professional experience in a leading company in sustainability and to discover a different country and culture.

In 2012 there were 14 beneficiaries of the program, from Europe, Latin America and North America, who enjoyed their professional experience in the only edition that took place from March 2012 to March 2013.
