One of our most sought after programs, volunteers often inquire about traveling to Brazil, most likely because of the adventure and excitement found in Rio de Janeiro, a destination known for its vibrancy and pulsing cultural energy. Our Brazil program is based in a suburb nearby the favelas, which makes up 6 percent of the population in Rio, equating to over 11 million people who live in these slums. Volunteers will be working directly with the residents of the favelas with the guidance of the local staff, and they will provide support in the areas of Sports Development, Teaching English, Working with Children, Carnaval (seasonal), and Community Development. Please reach out to our team if you have any questions regarding this or another program, and we will be happy to provide answers as well as help find the best project match for your skills and interests.
See website for full program fee details.
- Setting Description:
- Our Brazil program is located among the favelas; however, volunteers are accommodated in a secure volunteer house in a safe, middle class neighbourhood, which is in proximity to the project assignments.
