There is a growing poverty divide in Barcelona, and those who grow up in underprivileged communities don’t commonly have access to support services that exist in other parts of the world. Volunteers on the Youth Support project you can help forge meaningful connections with young people and help give them tools to break the cycle they were born into.
After school centres aim to provide a safe, supportive place for students to be productive with their free time, and volunteers play an important role in fostering an inclusive environment for all who want to attend. You’ll help with personal development and establishing life skills that can change young people’s expectations for themselves and their futures.
Youth Support volunteers assist students between the ages of 5-18 with homework, organising activities, teaching English, mentoring and simply spending time with the young people who attend the centres. During school and summer holidays, you can also help with trips to the beach or on summer camps outside town
You’ll work closely alongside the organisation staff and other volunteers to promote better outcomes for young people in Barcelona. This project has a minimum duration requirement of 2 weeks.Apply now
