Live it Lisbon! Summer Volunteer Programme 2017

Do you want to have a great summer & a lot of fun while giving back to the society and learning something new? If so, then do not put it off and apply to Live it Lisbon programme!

The Live it Lisbon! programme offers you the chance to do something different with your summer! The opportunity to make a difference in a community and meet people from all over the world. Dive into Portuguese culture and take home an unforgettable experience through helping others!


If you stand for equal rights and opportunities and if you are aware that we all need to commit ourselves in order to make a change in our complex society, if you know that happiness is the only treasure that becomes bigger when you share it, then you need to participate in this volunteering experience!

The volunteer program aims at improving the neighbourhood’s conditions, for example by cleaning streets, painting walls etc., but also at involving local kids in social activities, for example, sports tournaments, language tandems etc.

With this volunteer experience not only will you contribute to improving the social consciousness of Bairro Padre Cruz and its inhabitants, but you will also gain experience and personal growth. At the end of your stay, you will also receive a certificate stating what you have been doing and how much time you spent here, a document that can be inserted into your CV.


Do you enjoy visiting new places and meeting new cultures and people? Are you interested in arts and history? Do you think that travelling is a way of enriching yourself with wonderful memories? Would you like to see the ocean and play in a wonderful sandy beach? Then you definitely have to check Lisbon out!

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world and it attracts millions of tourists every year. It offers fun, events, history, culture and traditions. Basically, there is something to suit everybody’s fancy!


Are you excited about Portuguese culture? Would you like to deepen your knowledge about it by learning the beautiful Portuguese language? With Live it Lisbon! you will have the chance to do it, you will finally understand the real meaning of the word saudade!

At the end of your stay you will receive a certificate stating your attendance to the language course, the number of hours, the topics treated and the method used.

If you don’t feel like learning a new language but you would prefer to learn how to cook fresh pasta, pizza and so on, then you can attend the cooking workshops!

Have fun

Since forever, summer is considered as the most enjoyable season. Of course one of the reasons may be that without school, people are less stressed, but for sure making new friends has an important role.

Doing new things, trying different activities but above all travelling allows you to meet new people, sometimes very different from you, from your friends and relatives, with different cultures and tastes. From these intercultural meetings people are always enriched: you get a wider understanding of the world but above all, it is really likely to make friends for life!
