The experience

Conducting this project the volunteer, in part of his time, is intended to support the maintenance service of the Youth Hostel, allowing him to apply knowledge and skills in the area of maintenance of equipment and infrastructure, transforming them into an enriching experience of work in the area of hospitality, while knowing and living with the employees and customers of the Youth Hostel.

Also in another aspect of this project, the Volunteer will have the opportunity to materialize a greater involvement with the local community, either through their participation in city parties, or in the reception and monitoring of tourists who contact the local Tourism Office. In short, we plan to carry out a multifaceted exchange project, with the sharing of voluntary work at the Youth Hostel and the Bragança Tourism Office, with free time to get to know and enjoy the iconic beauty of the city of Bragança, the Montezinho Natural Park and the entire region of Trás-os-Montes.
