Connects with other realities
Volunteering in Bilbao means having a great immersion in Spanish culture, southern Europe offers you incredible moments where you can improve your English. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
It is an opportunity for volunteers who love to learn new things, meet new people and, most importantly, make a difference by using their knowledge and skills to enrich the lives of others and themselves.

It supports children and young people with disabilities or specific educational difficulties from different age groups ranging from babies to adults in their thirties. 
  • Students have a variety of learning difficulties and special needs.
  • Communication in Spanish is not an absolute must, the important thing is to be able to connect with the students in any way possible. 
  • The leaders of the organisation also work in English, so you don't have to worry about your language level.
The volunteers of this programme work as different classroom assistants, supporting the teachers in different activities during the mornings or afternoons. We include indoor games, art and craft activities to help students in their learning process.

Volunteers can look forward to:
  • Participate in the community, providing the opportunity to experience creativity and learn the techniques of the art of activity design and learn more about art.
  • Assist students in their daily lives and help them progress in life despite any disabilities they may have.

Volunteers on this program can expect to work around 3 to 4 hours per day, 4 or 5 days a week, usually Monday to Friday. There is always a specific mentor or coordinator on the program to guide volunteers.
