Youth Support Volunteer Program with ImpacTrip
Submitted by sammyk - Western University | July 14, 2018
This summer I decided to volunteer in Portugal with ImpacTrip and I can confidently say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only were the living conditions clean and safe, but the Impact House was absolutely beautiful. I am from Canada, but I met people from all over the globe, such as Australia, Switzerland, Hong Kong, etc. Living with the other volunteers gave me the chance to truly get to know them and make long lasting friendships. Diogo and Rita, the creators of ImpacTrip, were very receptive and accommodating. They are passionate about their sustainability mission and it is inspiring to see them achieve that with this organization. I volunteered with the youth support program for three weeks, and it was incredible! The kids were extremely well behaved and sweet. I am so happy I chose to volunteer in Portugal because it is a beautiful country with so much to offer. Although volunteering abroad may seem intimidating, do it! Specifically, do it with a safe, honest company like ImpacTrip.
Food Rescue, Eco-Diving & Youth Support
Submitted by David Löfman - Stockholm | July 07, 2018
I volunteered with Impactrip on three different projects during my 4 weeks stay. Starting with accommodation, I loved their efforts regarding sustainability. At the hostel, there are numerous initiatives and cleaver ways where they reduce the footprint of the organisation and to see that as a guest really inspired me. Food was excellent and the chefs really cared. All three projects were genuine and with a local organisation in Lisbon. I think Impactrip really serves its purpose as a bridge, connecting travelers to meaningful projects. What I always recommend to travelers reading positive reviews though, is to still manage your expectations. Volunteer projects all around the world are different and flexibility is key to enjoy any experience similar to this. My time in Lisbon was fantastic and I definitely recommend the projects!
Incredible volunteer experience
Submitted by Sam J - Virginia Commonwealth University | June 13, 2018
I had a truly amazing experience with IVHQ and I can't wait for the opportunity to volunteer with them again. As part of my gap year I knew I wanted to explore the world while also assisting a community in need. Ultimately, I decided that Lisbon, Portugal was where I wanted to do this. From the moment I arrived, and throughout my five week stay, the IVHQ team in Portugal made me feel right at home. The accommodations and food were beyond my expectations and everyone was very friendly/ helpful. As far as my volunteer placement went, it was a very educational experience. It was fascinating to work amongst people of various backgrounds and cultures, all of whom shared a common goal. At my project, food rescue, I was able to see who I was helping which definitely made my efforts more worthwhile. Additionally, my placement only lasted a few hours each day which allowed all of the volunteers an excellent chance to explore Lisbon and its surrounding cities. This was a great way to bond with them and I will cherish the memories and friendships made throughout my time there. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is considering traveling with IVHQ. Thank you again for an unforgettable trip!
Renovating in Lisbon
Submitted by Tania - American University of Beirut | February 02, 2018
My experience with ImpactTrip in Portugal was beyond what words can describe. I personally volunteered in Construction & Renovation, working with the local NGO ‘Just a Change’. I learned a lot about the field, about the local culture -since I was working with local students volunteers. I met amazing men and women with whom it turned out that I had a lot in common although we all come from different environments. I made both local and foreign friends, adapted to a totally different city (an amazing one by the way) and made memories that I will keep forever.
