This program involves the volunteers in this new approach of organic agriculture which strongly
respects and promotes the agro-ecosystem health, including biodiversity. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 14+
Solteiros
Casais
Famílias
Grupos
50+
In this program, volunteers will join a non-profit and will help and support the local host center in their daily tasks. The tasks depend on the current needs and can take place in the field, such as planting, weeding, harvesting, ground covering or watering, or in the greenhouse,sowing and organizing. There is also the possibility to participate and help in other activities in the warehouse related to producing baskets composition, product storage in boxes and on shelves and labeling. All these activities are developed under the supervision of the organization’s staff and integrated into the training dynamics of the project beneficiaries. Through these tasks, volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in a holistic production management system that applies locally adapted systems having into consideration the regional existing conditions.
If you’re planning to volunteer in winter, you should be prepared to have lower temperatures of 41oF-59oF (5o-15oC), so come prepared with warm clothing. The different tasks depend on the time of the year so it’s important the volunteer comes prepared to help out according to the current needs.
The importance of producing and consuming local and organic products is growing, and it has become an important tool for fighting climate change and social inequalities. At the same time, there’s low and difficult access to the labor market by people with intellectual or physical disabilities which makes it more difficult for these individuals to organize their future and to have a decent life with fair opportunities. Why not join both topics and create an amazing impact? That is our proposal to the volunteers that apply for the inclusive agriculture program.

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:

08:00 | Breakfast begins at Impact house, available until 10 am

10:15 | Travel to placement to join local placement staff and begin work on your project (if morning shift)                                                                     

13:00 |  Lunch is served at the accommodation or take-away if you want to go somewhere else                                

14:30 | Enjoy your free afternoon as you wish or to attend Portuguese languages lessons 

19:00 | Dinner at the volunteers' accommodation with the other volunteers. After dinner, you will have the remainder of the evening free to relax and use as you wish

Please note that the actual schedule can change according to the shifts volunteers participate in.

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.
