Retreats coordinator

The Lisbon Project is set on building a community that empowers and integrates migrants and refugees. We value relationship building in all that we do, and the Community Life Department is the central focus on making this happen through events, social gatherings, and regular excursions.

The Retreats Coordinator is responsible for organising and hosting 3 retreats per year and a month-long summer camp. The retreats are divided into one for kids (7-11 years old), one for teenagers (12-18 years old), and one exclusively for ladies. Retreats are events that take our community members out of their day-to-day routine and aim to provide relaxing and sociable experiences.

The summer camp takes place over four weeks during the month of August, for kids aged between 5 to 11 years old. This camp is intended to make sure kids have the opportunity to spend time with other kids their age while doing fun and enriching activities and excursions.
