Environment
ONLINE VOLUNTEERING PROGRAMS are the perfect opportunity for those who are interested in donating their time and take advantage of their
skills by supporting institutions from different parts of the world, without leaving their houses or committing to a specific date and time. Each one of these programs aims at causing a positive impact on communities and environment in different areas such as poverty, animal protection, ocean conservation, children education, amongst others. Because of the organizations’ limited budgets, you’ll likely get to do things you’ve never tried before such as translation, data collection, news writing, technical assistance (legal, labor, commercial, etc.) while also applying your skills and background into these challenges.

All of these are internet-based roles with no fixed hours, making it suitable for everyone looking to take on a new challenge alongside their existing commitments. The programs also have a component of cultural and linguistic immersion.

The Impacts of this Trip

In Portugal there are a lot of institutions that accommodate children or adults in different phases of their lives that for different reasons must live there for a short or long period of time. Some of these people, continue doing their life in an independent way while others are highly dependent on the organization’s facilities and support. The staff of these institutions does their best to keep them busy with educational, fitness and leisure activities, but sometimes time and resources are not enough to do everything that should be done. Volunteers play an important role in the routine of these people, by preparing dynamics such as games with the beneficiaries, an English class, a composting workshop, an exchange of ideas for Halloween parties and costumes or other ideas and initiatives that involve the beneficiaries. These activities bring fresh air into the local institutions, help the staff with new ideas of activities and help them having more time to focus on other tasks while the group is busy having fun with the volunteers. This is a program for active and creative people who want
to make a difference in people’s lives.
