Join a program that combines volunteering and studying the Portuguese Language.

During the first two weeks participants will study the Portuguese Language, receive an orientation on Olinda (and the surrounding area) and a volunteer orientation. You are always welcome to take more than two weeks of Portuguese classes while volunteering.

Participants at the intermediate level of Portuguese can begin volunteering after the first week. Participants at the beginner level may be required to take 4 weeks of Portuguese classes before starting their volunteer placement (depending on the specific placement requested).

Most volunteer placements prefer a commitment of 4 weeks, but will accept volunteers for a minimum commitment of 2 weeks.


1. Witness poverty in a foreign country, and gain insight into their needs and how you can help.

2. Improve your Portuguese language abilities.

3. Gain confidence and personal growth.

4. Combine community service, academics, and travel into one life-changing experience.


U.S. citizens traveling on regular passports for tourism or business are required to get a visa before arriving in Brazil. Participants staying for longer than 90 days will be required to get a student visa (we will provide documentation required for visas after the registration for the program has been received and in-line with the Brazilian requirements).

Minimum age of 18 unless accompanied by an adult. Volunteer positions on a space available basis. These are unpaid positions and there is a limited number of positions every month.
