Volunteer in Brazil with Creative Arts - from just $42 per day!

Company : Love Volunteers
Location : Brazil, Rio de Janeiro
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 50 to 3000+ $ Dollars (US)

The vibrant creative arts program in the heart of Rio de Janiero’s Complexo do Alemão favela was created with the goal of teaching a creative outlet to youth most in need. 

Having the opportunity to learn art techniques and immerse themselves in creative activity is a luxury many youths in the favela simply would never have had the opportunity to enjoy. Teaching art to these students is invaluable, providing a creative avenue and connecting youth to a vital cultural movement. The program is widely viewed as a vehicle which keeps youth engaged when not in school and involving them in positive activities where they have the ability to practice freedom of expression.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free art classes to the youth of Complexo do Alemão, one of Rio’s largest favelas
  • Participate in community art projects to create more vibrant community spaces in an impoverished city
  • Expose youth to the creative arts, which due to poverty many would not have experienced or been able to participate in
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both youth and international volunteers alike


Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the artistic development of Brazil's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the fields of art or education, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Volunteers on this project will need an understanding of Portuguese (or Spanish) in order to communicate effectively with the children and local staff members. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
Emergency contact
