Volunteer in Portugal

Volunteer Programs in Portugal

Working in close partnership with an experienced local team in the stunning European destination of Portugal, we are excited to offer volunteer programs in the coastal cities of Lisbon and Porto.  Programs focus on the key areas of Youth Support, Homelessness, Food Waste, Marine Conservation, Agriculture and Wolf Conservation. Volunteers with a genuine interest and willingness to help are welcomed and on-site training will be provided so no prior experience is necessary. Volunteers will work alongside local staff and fellow volunteers on worthwhile, targeted programs to provide the most benefit. 

Portugal is one of the oldest European nations and enjoyed a period of vast wealth and global power as a colonial empire during the 15th and 16th centuries. Unfortunately investment in the domestic economy was lacking and, combined with low productivity, Portugal today has high rates of inequality, marganization and poverty, particularly among the young.  Volunteering in this European Union country offers a wonderfully rewarding opportunity, whether as part of a European trip, to fill a career or study gap, as an alternative to a conventional holiday, to broaden perspectives, gain experience or simply to give back. 

This destination, on the popular Iberian Peninsula, bordered by Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, offers much to enchant the visitor. Captivating architecture from medieval to modern, quaint villages and ancient sites all tell a story. Combine this with idyllic beaches, dramatic scenery and simple, delicious fare from coast and countryside and you have the perfect place in which to spend time!
