Community Development involves many activities and usually geared more towards volunteers who want to experience a variety of tasks while volunteering in Rio de Janeiro. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singoli
Coppie
Famiglie
Gruppi
50+

Activities include:

  • Giving classes on basic computer skills

  • Helping to secure an internet connection and setup an IT lab.

  • Helping in a Community Garden.

  • Serving dinner for the homeless.

  • Painting or refurbishing.

We need highly driven individuals who know how to work independently. An intermediate level of Portuguese or advanced Spanish will be a huge advantage. Also since this involves such a wide range of activities, the volunteer should be flexible with a willingness to help in several activities. It would be great if you could tell us what type of activities you would be interested in doing. If you would like to work with the fashion designer in a favela please let us know so we can place you accordingly. Let us know if you have any experience in construction work because this comes as a real asset!
