Perched on the hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo, and in close proximity to gorgeous Southern-European beaches, Portugal’s capital city is a heady mix of ancient ruins, eccentric street life, and colonial cathedrals. Lisbon is a step into Europe with a laid-back vibe.

What is it actually like to live in Lisbon? Where can one month take you? In Lisbon, you are immersed in history the moment you step outside. Together, the group will take a Portuguese language crash course, will embark on tours of historic downtown, as well as of Lisbon’s famed food, wine pastries, and explore the country on a day trip to nearby beaches and/or castles. The best way to get a true taste of local life in Lisbon, however, is through skills-based volunteering.

Partner Placement
We will match you with a personalized skills-based volunteer opportunity. We match our Venturers with a project based on the needs of our organizations as well as the skills and interests of each participant.

Global Community

Each week, in a group dinner participants have a chance to try a new local flavor, and get to know other participants in the program.

Cultural Immersion
VWI is your cultural insider. We’ll help you dig deeper into the local culture by providing you access to the best local events and by offering trips and activities for the whole group. You will also have the opportunity to learn Portuguese through immersion or through lessons arranged by VWI with a tutor.

Accommodation + Workspace

Venture with Impact reviews from other trips

VWI was an amazing experience

VWI was an amazing experience. I was able to work with inspiring non-profit organizations and immerse myself in their ongoing projects, and felt like I had many opportunities to connect with locals.
I also loved the VWI group - it was wonderful meeting motivated, interesting people from lots of different backgrounds who shared a common passion for serving others. I felt like I gained something valuable from each person I met in the program.
The coordinator also did a great job of setting up fun activities and excursions - there was always something going on, from happy hours to high-altitude hikes!
I highly recommend this experience to anyone who has the time and opportunity to participate.

The folks at VWI did everything in their power to help me with my personal goals

The folks at VWI did everything in their power to help me with my personal goals. My only downfall was not letting them know when I had concerns. ie: I had a concern about my volunteering which I stuck out for a couple of days before saying anything to my surprise, the issue was cleared up by the end of the workday, (if I wasn't so nervous about saying something).
When I got to Trujillo I was nervous and wondering what I got myself into, but I quickly made friends with the locals (who are VERY helpful and friendly) which helped to fill the any voids in my schedule. I have everything! Great food, volunteering, friends, day trips, gym time, space to work on my studies, adventure, I could go on...
I'm really happy to have been involved in this. I plan on doing it as long as I can work from my computer!
