About

Envision yourself in a country of soaring architectural feats, exciting nightlife and unbelievable landscapes. The sounds of Carnival, six days of music, food and dancing, or the deafening cheers from Marcena Stadium (home of the 2014 World Cup), echo in your ears. Where are you? Brazil, of course! No other place blends outdoor adventure from deserts to rain-forests with a backdrop of such great diversity quite like Brazil. Volunteers enjoy trying local dishes, Amazonian fruit like the açaí, and getting to know the languages and people of Brazil, one of the largest and most populous countries in South America and the world.

United Planet is the US and Canadian member of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in Brazil, you can volunteer on a variety of projects in partnership with local organizations around the country.

Possible volunteer projects include:

  • Caring for children of families who have suffered abuse
  • Assisting local non-profit organizations to advocate for marginalized populations
  • Motivating youth to stay in school through activities, sports, and more
  • Working in a local community to create a recycling program that will guarantee an income
