This project supports NGOs in Barcelona to develop their online presence and marketing materials. This project requires volunteers to have experience in website development, graphic design, videography or photography. Volunteers will initially work with our local team and the staff of the NGO to understand the specific needs they will be supporting and to agree on a set of deliverables for their project period.

Experienced website developers can apply their understanding of the NGO’s goals and target audience to build a website incorporating relevant content and media to support their charitable initiatives.

Graphic design professionals can create a range of marketing materials, which could include flyers, print advertisements, website content, social media posts, or logos. These materials will relate on specific needs but volunteers are invited to contribute ideas for effective campaigning.

Experienced volunteers in videography or film can create promotional videos for NGOs that do not have resources to create videos to support their campaign efforts. Volunteers with experience in photography can work with NGOs to document their activities and provide them with media. This could involve taking photos of the community members which the NGO supports, or helping to record activities of a specific project.

As these NGOs might not have the necessary resources available, volunteers need to bring their own laptops, design software (Adobe Creative Suite or equivalent) and/or camera equipment in order to participate on this project. Please ensure you include all relevant qualifications and/or experience within your application.
