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.

The programs start on Monday when the orientation day takes place and consists of a morning orientation session and a city tour in the afternoon.

Free-time activities

Barcelona is an enchanting seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture, sun-drenched beaches, and picturesque neighborhoods. Every month there's a different celebration or main event in the city. If you happen to be around, check the festivities calendar for that month! Also, Barcelona is located in the region of Catalonia with amazing spots to discover, from paradisiac beaches to outstanding hiking trails and ancient villages. The transportation network in Spain is very complete which allows you to visit easily other cities in Spain like Madrid, Sevilla or Bilbao.

The local team will give you the best tips to make the most out of your stay.

Airport Pickup at Barcelona-El Prat Airport
Our staff will pick you up at the airport and guide you through the metro to the accommodation. It takes about 25 minutes from the airport to the accommodation.
Accommodation
You will stay accommodated in a social hostel with a meaningful social and environmental mission.  The Hostel has the capacity to accommodate up to 200 conscious travelers who want to visit Barcelona in a responsible way.  
There are various common areas such as dining room, living room, room balconies, outside areas surrounded by nature and a pool to refresh in the summer.  
The hostel is in a neighborhood where you can find everything you need: local coffee shops, supermarkets, ATMs, hospital, police and most utilities you will need just around the corner. The Hostel is 5 minutes walking from the metro stop and has a few buses running by that can bring you to the city center. The airport is just 15 minutes away by public transportation. 
But what is really unique about it is its social and sustainable concept. The hostel is actually a social business for a non-profit ran in the same building. The non-profit develops a wide range of programs, campaigns and activities for children and youth, their families and third sector organizations. The hostel also has a sustainability and accessibility commitment reflected on measures such as renewable energy production, selective waste collection, etc. 
Dorm Room
Food & Beverages
We will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hostel everyday. The hostel restaurant offers meals with fresh local ingredients everyday for all volunteers in a very Spanish style and they are prepared to accommodate most diet restrictions such as vegan and vegetarians, gluten-free and lactose intolerant. 
Internet Access

Flight Tickets
