Help out people in need, explore the culture of Spain, and boost your college application—all at the same time! Our volunteer programs will provide you with a unique opportunity to make the world a better place and have the summer of a lifetime in Cadiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in all Western Europe, which boasts a glorious300 days of sunshine per year.
The program is principally for students with an intermediate level of Spanish, who want to help those in need, while immersing themselves in Spanish culture. The program can be 2 weeks or 3 weeks. It takes place in Cadiz, an idyllic seaside city with almost constant sunshine! The students can choose from a huge range of volunteering options, such as helping elderly people, working with marginalized youth, volunteering at a soup kitchen, collecting clothes and food, helping animals and the environment, etc. The program is also packed with many cultural activities, visits, and weekend excursions in Spain and neighboring countries. For an authentic experience, students live with a carefully selected Spanish family. Students will make a positive impact in the local community in Cadiz, all while boosting their college app. They will drastically improve their Spanish language skills, as well as deepen their knowledge of Spanish culture. They will also make friends, have fun, and discover the best of Spain through guided tours, flamenco lessons, tapas nights, Spanish cooking workshops, surfing classes, excursions to other cities, and more!
