Today, Portugal is a European leader and founding member of NATO, OECD, and EFTA. Students know that English is a critical skill for their personal development. Family volunteers and individuals can make a significant contribution! You can connect with local people as a "non-tourist" - providing a service that isn't available locally. No matter your background or skills, volunteering in Portugal helps create a more prosperous future for eager students in this welcoming community!
“Each day has been a bit like unwrapping a surprising package. After lunch, we had our library time—thinking that it might be a bit lonely. That didn’t last. Before we knew it, we were surrounded by students eager to talk, listen and help us with our visitor’s map. We let them circle anything of interest as long as they talked to us. Needless to say, we now have a map with lots of museums, churches and parks circled."
~ Irene Finnegan, Portugal volunteer
