Incredible experience!

I had an incredible time with ImpactTrip! It was wonderful working with the children at the program and getting to know the other volunteers. Rita and Diogo are very welcoming and created such a lovely and warm atmosphere. If you are thinking about volunteering, just do it! You won’t be disappointed!

Youth support volunteering in Lisbon

I spent 4 weeks volunteering with Impactrip and my time flew by!

I was volunteering in the youth support programme where I was allowed to help volunteer with the children throughout the week from the morning till after lunch time leaving my afternoons free to go to the beach or go exploring.

The city of Lisbon is very easy to travel around using the trains which do not cost a lot when you purchase the travel card!

I stayed in a volunteer house with up to 11 other volunteers and I was able to share a room with other volunteers of the same gender who were luckily around a similar age.

Most of the volunteers were between 18-24 years old so it's great for young people to make some friends from all around the world!


Compared to other volunteer programmes the Impactrip team are very friendly and helpful with all your needs!
I would recommend this organisation as they do their very best to make you feel welcome in their country and will help you in any way they can!


I loved my time there and hopefully others will go and see how fulfilling this experience truly is!

Don't think...Just DO IT!!!

Off the plane and into a city filled of wonders. The staff Rita and Diogo were very helpful in greeting me initially when I arrived at the airport and getting me to my accommodation. I spoke absolutely no Portuguese so I was worried if I would have trouble getting around in the country. They made me feel extremely comfortable and answered any questions that I might have had during my stay putting my mind at ease. The project I was working on was food distribution. The staff who were at the ReFood center were very nice and caring individuals passionate about what they did! It was a pleasure to be have been able to work among such friendly locals! We were also able to have enough time to take many wonderful day trips around the city. The program coordinators went above and beyond to show us the loveliest, most interesting parts around town and explain the history behind them. Was the perfect balance of volunteering at the project site, and still getting to be a tourist in the wonderful city of Lisbon. It is a very vibrant city with something to do for everyone. Getting to work with the other volunteers, meet with locals, and immerse in Portuguese culture was truly invaluable. An experience I will not soon forget and would recommend to anyone thinking of trying it.

First volunteer experience

I have never traveled without my family before this experience so I was quite scared even though I was bursting with excitement. When the IMPACT team met me at the airport all my fear evaporated. They were just so friendly and welcoming! They were there to help every step of the way. All the other volunteers were extremely nice and it was easy to make friends. I had a blast and I wish I could have stayed longer. It is an amazing feeling to be working with a group of people to help others and to try to make a change.

Lisbon is a gorgeous city full of culture and history. It is a perfect choice for volunteering abroad. I can't wait for the opportunity to visit again!

My ImpacTrip in Portugal!!

I volunteered in Portugal for a week last summer with my sisters working on the food rescue project in Lisbon. This was such an eye opening experience for me and I loved being a part of the amazing project that the local community has committed themselves to. The tasks that you assist with during your volunteer hours include organizing bags of food for families in need, handing out the bags to the families, washing dishes, and sometimes making trips to the grocery store to pick up food that would otherwise be thrown away (Which by the way was an unbelievable amount of food! SO grateful for all of the people who dedicate their time to this!). The organizer coordinators, Rita and Diogo were very accommodating and are so much fun to be around. You two are doing an amazing job and my sisters and I are so thankful for everything that you continually do for the volunteers! Anybody looking into volunteering in Lisbon with ImpacTrip do not forget to check out the day trip/tour adventures that Rita and Diogo offer (Beaches, Wineries, Castles)! Portugal is so beautiful and they provide ways for you to see much more of it than you normally would on your own time. We will definitely be seeing you two back in Portugal! Thank you ImpacTrip for the entire experience.
