Home Rehabilitation Summer Volunteer Program in Rural Portugal

Video and Photos


The Summer Rural Bootcamp is a volunteer home rehabilitation program in rural areas of Portugal.

For 12 days you can join a group of volunteers from all over the world, in a Portuguese village, to help create a welcoming and cosy home for those who need it the most.

Divided into teams, each group of participants will have a home that will rehabilitate it from the beginning to the end of the program. At night the group joins all together in the accommodation, for fun times and sharing of experiences and culture.

The days start early and are very busy with the rehabilitation, ending at the end of the afternoon. After work it's time to chill and enjoy the sunset and relax before dinner.

This is an incredible program and a unique opportunity to meet new people and cultures, to know new lands in Portugal and, above all, to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

  • Travel like a local!

  • Learn new skills, improve your CV and gain hands-on experience!
  • Have an unforgettable summer!

Amazing Experience

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..
