Project type

Selected participants

The role of the volunteers will be mainly to help the team of CCPNSD (Centro Comunitário e Paroquial de Nossa Senhora das Dores) to create a healthy environment, and open the horizons of the community, especially children, young people and elderly.
Therefore, the volunteers have to give a lot of care and transmit a feeling of confidence in their relation with the community. This can be achieved by creating a good relationship and earning their trust.
The volunteer will be integrated in the after-school activities facility: Casa de São Bento and in the Day Care centre for elderly people.

The volunteers will collaborate 35 hours per week during 5 days a week (30 hours of activities + 5 hours for trainings, language support, mentorship meetings, reports, etc.). Although, the volunteers might work different hours per day.
The schedule will be defined by the hosting organization on arrival of the volunteer and it can change according to the activities.
The volunteers will have 2 consecutive free days each week that can vary from week to week according to the needs of the hosting organization. However, when the hosting organization has activities on volunteer’s free days and the volunteers are asked to work, they might have to choose another free day, since the collaboration of the volunteers is important.
The volunteers have the right to take the Portuguese National official holidays as free days, when they match with working days.
It is not possible to work more hours in each day to have 3 days free each week. It is needed to work 5 days each week.
The volunteers have the right to take the Portuguese National official holidays as free days, when they match with working days.
