All the workshop, evento for a shirt time was efective. Helping and developing persons in need. Infracstrures are a very difficult area to work. Using deep knolegde and motivacional methodology to engage vollunteers and beneficiaries...
This project should bem replicated to all countries...

I had the opportunity to enroll two of these camps and I recommend it to anyone who wants to create a huge impact in people's lives. Home is the most important place in the world, and being able to improve it for people in need is a beautiful and fulfilling thing. The group interaction is very strong and the environment is really really fun. The work is intense but it is totally worth it ! I met amazing friends and visited beautiful places. I will definitely repeat this experience !

Unlike most volunteer projects, Just a Change has an immediate impact on people's lives. Throughout the week you'll see the team work making the dream work.
The Summer Rural Bootcamp is both productive and enjoyable. Who would know rehabilitation programs in rural areas could be this fun!
You will realize you were born with two hands: one for helping other people, and the other for holding a beer.
It is an epic week, to say the least..

What an amazing experience, to participate in one of the Just a Change's bootcamp.
I would definitely recommend it, the impact you can create in someone's life by rebuilding a house is unbelievable. You will also have time to enjoy the experience with the other volunteers, that become such good friends at the end of this intense bootcamp.
If you're planning on having the best summer, just start by applying for one of the amazing bootcamps of Just a Change. You won't regret it!

I enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff, and had a great time working and meeting with local Portugese at my construction renovation project. I think a particular positive aspect of Impactrip is the location of the apartment: far away from the downtown area to be quiet and comfortable, yet close enough to any public transport to efficiently travel, not to mention Estrella's own sights to see in parks, churches, and neighborhood cafes like Tentadora where I would always get my pastries and cafe every morning. I look forward to more travel to other countries, as well as especially coming back to Lisboa.

I did 3 weeks in the Construction and Renovation program and had a wonderful experience. The staff and the people I met were all really helpful and great people.

My volunteer experience in Portugal, delivered and facilitated by local social startup ImpacTrip, was incredbily positive - and indeed left a real impact on me too.

The projects were meaningful and real, meaning they were truly geared towards addressing social problems present in the areas, and thus made us feel we were making a real contribution towards something. In particular, my involvement with Re-food initiative addressing Food waste in the city, left me very inspired and uplifted!

The program had a good balance between meaningful volunteer experience, and a natural good fun along the way. After the programs, you can go and explore the city that has so much to offer, or conisder additional activites (like surfing or scuba-diving) that bring further benefit to local SMEs business and people!

I would wholeheartedly recommend this program, and know you wont be disappointed if you decide to come!

Boa sorte :)

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe by gradually offering larger selection of projects for volunteers to engage in. Otherwise, nothing comes to mind at this moment...
