Espaço Transformar offers school support classes, judo, flute, embroidery, and vegetable gardening. Children from 7 to 12 years old are assisted in the counter shift of their regular school, from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 11 am, and from 1 pm to 4:30 pm. Adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 are assisted in the back shift of their regular school, but at specific times for scheduled classes.
GOOD TO KNOW
Espaço Transformar does not offer accommodation for the volunteers during their stay. But, that is not a problem for us, and we can help our volunteers to find a place to stay.
Breakfast is usually provided by the hotels or guest houses, but we will provide breakfast and dinner for the volunteers during their working hours. For lunch and dinner, the volunteer is free to choose the best option for them.
The project runs Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The local economy offers services related to the same hours, except the Verdemar Supermarket that serves until 10:00 pm.
Initially, because there is no host structure the project does not charge the participation of any volunteer, but how the NGO is a non-profit organization we stimulate the voluntary contribution during the volunteer's stay.
Field volunteers will be provided with stimulating practical experience in the following activities/areas:
