À propos du programme

Carnaval is an event that breaks all economic and social boundaries – a love and passion for Samba makes everyone equal. Samba schools competing in Carnaval have a full year of intense work to prepare the many costumes, floats, music and dances for the celebration.

This project is well suited to creative volunteers with a flair for decoration and craft, as you will be helping some of the leading Samba schools in the creation of costumes and floats. Samba schools are born from the local favelas (urban slums) and most of the schools take their names from the community they represent. Each school unifies and proudly represents people from that community and all Cariocas (Rio-born Brazilians) also have their favorite school.

You do not need to have any experience in costume or stage design, just a willingness to work hard at sewing, cutting, pasting and other craft-oriented tasks to help out with the costume and float design.

While volunteers are hard at work, they can also engage in Portuguese and English language exchange with fellow workers.

Please, be aware that this year the Carnival Parade has exceptionally been postponed due to the Pandemic so you will be able to enjoy the party from April 20th to the 25th, 2022. If you choose to stay with during those dates, the accommodation surcharge will be charged to cover the hostel fees for the festive season. Participation in the actual parade is not included in the project, however volunteers may come across this opportunity at an additional cost by arranging this independently once in-country. This project is available between October and February each year.

Our Name

Jacarandá International Volunteering Experience, or simply JIVE, was inspired by the Jacarandá tree which is solid and versatile, showing that even though JIVE was founded by foreigners, our roots are here in Brazil. We want to improve the conditions for the locals by giving them a global perspective since we chose to make Rio de Janeiro our home.

Our Values

Strive for Excellence

We are dedicated to providing our volunteers and local partners with the highest quality of support and services. 

Respect and Integrity

We aim to be transparent, flexible, friendly, and treat every one and every situation with outmost respect. 

Engage through Immersion

We believe in helping where help is most needed and take an integrative approach by involving our partners in identifying and implementing projects with the most impact for the community. 

Our Mission

To help advance human potential and promote equality by crossing boundaries and brining people together from all over the world to work side-by-side in local communities while sharing perspectives and fostering cultural understanding.


Wondering why you should choose JIVE over other Volunteer programs is a totally relevant questions, so let us answer that for you! 

Here at JIVE we pride ourselves on being a locally based sustainable organization that strives to provide positive global impact through individual action. We aim to provide you with the support you need to successfully help the vulnerable communities in Rio de Janeiro, while learning about the city and culture during your time here.

JIVE was founded by two foreigners who have experience as former volunteers. With this former experience we are able to provide you with the necessary support and empathy when dealing with the complexities of life outside of your comfort zone.

At JIVE we aim to give our volunteers total flexibility when choosing the duration of their stay and which programs they wish to choose. From teaching English to Community Development, you will be able to find your niche when volunteering. We encourage you to bring your own ideas and passion from home in order to fully participate in these programs!

A unique aspect of JIVE is our partnership with a local Portuguese language school. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in these courses so that you are better able to communicate with locals and experience the diverse culture of the city.

At JIVE we pride ourselves on having a sustainable model for all of our projects. This means that we make every effort to avoid leaving a negative environmental or social impact in the communities we are working in. Rather, we strive to bring our own resources to the projects instead of exploiting these vulnerable communities.

Connecting with other JIVErs is a big part of your experience. You will be living and working side by side with your fellow volunteers and the bonds you will create will help you to bring your best to these communities, and, will hopefully last a lifetime!

Throughout your time with JIVE we urge you to bring an open heart and mind with you. While it isn't a tangible thing you pack in your suitcase, it is essential to bring with you, so that you may make connections both with your fellow volunteers, the locals, the people you're striving to help, and the city itself!

First of all about the accommodation. It is a pretty good hostel for the conditions of Rio. However, it is important to ...

I had the most amazing time while I was in Rio and I have learned a lot from the program that I was on. While being in Rio I fell in love with the city and the people. I will definitely be coming back in a few year to explore more of Brazil. I want to say thank you everyone I have met during my ...
My three months volunteering in Rio will always be a cherished highlight. With a background in support work and aid-teaching back at home, it was such a eye-opening experience to teach English in a country totally foreign in every aspect to me! To be brutally honest, I remember the first week ...
If I had the courage to travel to Brazil alone to volunteer anyone can do it! I was scared, nervous and anxious! and actually asked myself in the taxi to the host house 'what on earth am I doing here' but I had the biggest smile on my face!. Then you meet the amazingly beautiful people you will live ...
