Carlos Sanz Del Castillo


I am passionate about adventure and learning. I consider myself a person committed to my community, I have been an activist since I was very young which has allowed me to know the whole inter-associative fabric and how it works. I love to share with people and to deepen in the field of interpersonal relationships and personal development. What I am most passionate about are the experiences of coexistence, especially if they are in nature where each person can bring out the best of themselves.

Work experience

I have always been connected to the world of learning. I started my professional career as a camp instructor and later became a primary school teacher, so I have always sought to combine the best of formal and non-formal education. I have always worked closely with youth and after doing my EVS in Poland as a social worker I have been able to work as a football coach and skate instructor. In 2018 I created my own organization for which I work full time combining the philosophy of experiential learning with adventure and community participation. In 2020 I had the opportunity to work as a facilitator for adventure therapy projects which has allowed me to gain a deep insight on how to take the learning that adventure offers us further. In recent years I design, coordinate and facilitate learning programs for youth and youth workers in which I seek to connect adventure, personal development and community engagement. Finally, right now I'm coordinating the counselling service for Erasmus + programme opportunities for the local council of my community.

Educational pathway

My training has been closely linked to the field of learning, both as a camp monitor and as an elementary school teacher. Eventually I decided to continue my training and specialize as a coordinator and trainer of trainers. In the last few years I have been able to continue training specifically in different areas, becoming a football coach, skate and river sup instructor and finally training as a mountain guide. In addition, during these years I have focused my training in the field of personal development and emotional intelligence combining studies in mindfulness, neuorescience, psychology and accessibility with tools such as the use of the garden, theater of the oppressed and adventure activities in nature.
