The Lisbon Project is a non-profit organization that aims to protect and integrate the lives of migrants and refugees in the city of Lisbon. Moving to another country is a big step for anyone. There are many new challenges to overcome in the everyday life, whether it is for the children to find their way around school or for adults to learnPortuguese so they can better integrate into society. Therefore, we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to become tutors to these community members. Your contribution will make a decisive impact on the education and life of a person who truly needs it. The Tutoring sessions will be set up individually to give you the best flexibility and support for the learning process.
