Review Description


Our vision is to promote international volunteerism, local associations and social enterprises by strategically matching international volunteer with local talents and creative thinking. Our goal is to function as a hub of innovative ideas and projects that can have a positive impact on Bilbao and the surrounding region. To that purpose we are constructing a community of social innovators - an international network that combines the energy and passion of volunteers from all over the world with the knowledge and skills of local NGOs, associations and social enterprises.

Volunteers work with the International Bilbao Network to support the causes of many Bilbao associations, NGOs, and public schools. Our local partners are committed to fostering social inclusion – in particular with regard to children at risk and migrants – as well as promoting local cultural heritage, English language,  animal care and environmental protection. The different organisations are committed to fostering social inclusion – in particular with regard to children at risk, migrants and homeless – as well as promoting local cultural heritage, English language, and environmental protection.

We are located in downtown Bilbao, just a few meters from  Gran Via in the historical centre. Instituto Hemingway is hosted in a 19th-century building across two floors and a rooftop terrace with a panoramic view.

2024 at Animal Welfare Helper

The spanish lessons were organised very good, as well as the leisure time activities and the housing. The whole staff is very welcoming, ready to help and always available. Unfortunately, the cooperation between the voluntary programs (you can choose between some) was poorly organised. The ...

2023 at Animal Welfare Helper

I love animals and getting to work at an animal shelter as a volunteer was an experience I'll never forget but always appreciate. Though it was only a few months it'll mean something to me forever. I had the impression that I did a meaningful impact on these animals and this is very rewarding to me. ..
