NOTICE

TURN UP 

The Turn Up program, being divided into rotating shifts, does not ensure the safety of beneficiaries, volunteers and construction technicians. In a short period of time many people pass through the same place, and given the current situation, we cannot take any risks.

 

So, we decided that this semester, we will not open registrations for the Turn Up program.

To ensure the greatest impact for beneficiaries and an incredible experience for volunteers, we will continue our work through the Keep Up program.

keep up

Registrations for the KEEP UP LISBOA program open on October 6th at 9pm.

For now, we will not have registrations for Porto.
