In this program, volunteers will join different non-profits, where they will help and support local underprivileged children in their afterschool programs. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Solteiros
Casais
Famílias
Grupos
50+
Cadeiras de Roda
In this program, volunteers will have the opportunity to contribute to the education of underprivileged children.

The daily tasks are built so that the children can play and have fun while developing their skills.
You can help teach them sports, English, arts, music or any other skill that you have. Most of all you have to make them feel safe and happy and create complementary extra-curricular activities to help them during their after-school time. 

These children are dependent on this programs, as they often come from families that don’t have the means to support them properly. It creates great value and meaning for the children to see foreign volunteers come a long way just because they care about them. Normally they get very attached to the volunteers, turning this program into an even bigger deep and meaningful experience.

Typical day

After the initial orientation, you will have a morning or afternoon shift at your placement and will work for approximately 3 to 5 hours per day. Please note that start times and daily workload depends on the project that you are participating in. A typical morning schedule is as follows:

Accommodation

Impact House has the capacity to accommodate up to 44 conscious travelers who want to visit Lisbon in a different way. With both dormitories and private rooms, any traveler can choose to have a more responsible stay in Portugal.

There are various common areas such as dining room, living room, fully-equipped kitchen, a big terrace and garden to relax and participate in our interesting events calendar, as well as a swimming pool and coffee/bar. We have free Yoga classes three times a week!

Located in the Restelo neighborhood, Impact House is just 20 minutes away from the Tejo river, and 30min by bus from the city center. You can easily visit some historical and emblematic places of Lisbon, the stunning Torre de Belém and its garden, Cultural Center (CCB) with amazing art, expositions and concerts, Mosteiro Dos Jerónimos, as well as local shops, traditional restaurants, supermarkets, ATMs and most utilities you will need very close. The Hostel is surrounded by several connecting options to the city center, such as buses (30 minutes away from the center), and the Belém train station that leads you to Lisbon or Cascais (25 walking distance from the hostel). The airport is just 13 km away.

But what is really unique about us is our sustainability concept.

We developed innovative projects based on circular economy and in partnership with local non-profit partners. These projects are integrated into the very basis of the way the hostel works. Some examples are the compensation of 100% of its CO2 emissions; the upcycling and wooden waste usage as furniture of the room; the social and sustainable shop; the ecologic and biodegradable cleaning projects; the art gallery for disabled and changemaker artists; the vegetables garden; the buying in bulk policy or the almost closed food and waste cycles.
