Do you want to visit the land of samba dancers and world-renowned beaches? Enroll in our volunteer in Brazil program and you will experience one of the most vibrant and beautiful places on the planet.
The people of Brazil are full of buoyant spirit and the culture is incredibly intoxicating. There is also the fascinating social structure that makes this place so great to experience. From Ipanema, Santa Teresa, Lapa, to Rio's favelas, the city of Rio de Janeiro where our programs are based, is full of interesting neighborhoods and destinations. When you volunteer in Brazil you will have the opportunity to experience the powerful dynamics of Rio de Janeiro. It will be challenging, rewarding, and fun.Because of the 2014 World Cup and Olympics in 2016, the city of Rio de Janeiro and throughout Brazil is jumping with energy and development. When you volunteer in Brazil opportunities to witness this rapid growth and excitement are seemingly endless. The cultural dynamics and natural splendors of this nation are what bring in millions of travelers every year. Becoming one of these visitors will be an experience that you never forget.

Weekly fee is divided between accommodation and project donation/support of local project staffs.

There are various options for volunteer accommodation and it depends on the time of year in regards to availability. (December through February is Rio's busiest months, and volunteers need to plan far in advance in order to receive adequate accommodation.)
The Volunteer Coordinator will find a place for volunteers to stay in Rio. Most of the time, that's going to be in hostel. Volunteers will share a room with other volunteers and travelers. Breakfast will be provided (usually fruit, coffee, sandwiches). There are several hostel locations throughout Rio that will be safe and secure for the volunteer, as well as a good opportunity to meet other travelers.
Sometimes the Coordinator can find a home stay situation for a volunteer. They would be given a room in an apartment. This is a good opportunity to experience how a person lives in Rio (This is not with a family though). With this accommodation, there are also various locations throughout the city (even in the favelas). Locations will be secure. However, volunteers must prepare their own meals and availability can be highly limited.
Throughout the volunteer project, our local staff stays in contact with volunteers either with face-to-face visits or via email/telephone. With longer placements, we visit our volunteers every two weeks (when possible) and volunteers are always welcome to contact the local country coordinator at any time.
