Volunteer Programs in Spain
Love Volunteers has partnered with a fantastic NGO to support programs in the famed city of Barcelona, Spain. Volunteers can choose from programs across diverse fields, including Marine Conservation, Animal Care, Youth Support, Disabilities Support and Teaching. Volunteers work alongside local staff and fellow volunteers on worthwhile, focused programs. No prior experience is required as on-site training and support are provided. A genuine willingness to help and a can-do attitude are all we ask!
Centuries of civilisation have left a rich history, punctuated by world-renowned creative genius in the form of Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí. Equally revered the world over is Spanish cuisine and visitors flock to the country year round for its fabulous festivals and Mediterranean beaches. Second only in the EU to France in size, Spain covers an enormous tract of land that is fascinatingly diverse in terms of geology, culture and climate. A treasure trove of adventure and discovery with the convenience of travel within the European Union.
In spite of its cultured and sophisticated modern appearances, Spain's underbelly reveals high youth unemployment, substandard education and a large informal or black-market economy, contributing to high crime rates and income inequality. Volunteering in Spain offers participants a unique insight into the beautiful depths of this stunning destination; a chance to see beyond the veneer and actually contribute to this incredible country's future. A richly 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.
