About Program

Volunteering with Arrels means getting to know the reality of homeless people in Barcelona.

If you’re in Barcelona for six months or more and want to do some volunteering, we are the outlet for you. Our only requirement is you to speak some Spanish so that the communication with the people attended is more fluent. If you’re here for less than 6 months but you want to make a proposal, go ahead! We also offer the possibility to do summer volunteering, during July, August and September.

We are an entity where everybody collaborates. Homeless people provide knowledge through their experience and critical view, the volunteers team makes it possible to rebuild bonds with the most vulnerable people and the professionals add their technical skills and the continuity of the processes.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
