Volunteer with United Planet in Brazil, and you will have the experience of a lifetime! Brazil has much to offer with its vast landscape and wide variety of native animals. While Brazil's economy is booming, it also suffers from staggering income inequality, overpopulated urban centers, and exploitation of its natural resources. By volunteering in Brazil, you will be able to gain unique cultural perspectives not accessible to the average tourist. Through your work project, host community and personal explorations, you'll learn that Brazil is more than favelas, beaches and beautiful people, it's an all consuming experience of the senses - music, dance, nightlife, astounding natural beauty and limitless adventures. You many even come back fluent in Portuguese - quite a feat!
United Planet's Volunteer Abroad Quest program offers signature pre-departure and in-country training, personal volunteer support, meaningful volunteer opportunities, diverse cultural and learning activities, local excursions, a strong host family network, and much more.
