Portugal! Sunshine, beaches, picturesque cities that blend the old and new, friendly people and prices that are lower than most of Europe. All this makes it a great destination for volunteer and internship programs. Don't speak Portuguese? English is the second language of a large portion of the population, and we've found that many businesses and volunteer organizations welcome English speakers.
As the capital,Lisbon is the a logical choice for an internship; so much going on. From its historic European port, great food, more sunshine annually than any capital in Europe (edging out Athens), and beautiful panoramic views from its many hills, the quality of life makes it a great place to spend time.
History abounds in Porto, where we have teamed up with some great volunteer organizations. As you stroll its winding, historic streets you'll feel the authenticity of this Portuguese gem. Throw in the hip riverfront, beautiful beaches and its outdoor café life, and you'll see why many travelers count this as their favorite city in Portugal and even Europe.
