Yet, even in this developed country, there are vulnerable communities and natural environments that need our help.

Volunteer opportunities in Spain

There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities available in Spain for individuals looking to make a meaningful impact while exploring the vibrant Spanish culture. One popular type of volunteer work involves environmental conservation projects, where volunteers can contribute to the preservation of Spain’s stunning natural landscapes and wildlife.

Alternatively, those interested in social issues can engage in community development programs, supporting marginalized communities by providing educational resources, healthcare assistance, or organizing cultural events.

You can join marine conservation projects such as the one in Tenerife, or a volunteering project based in Malaga.

 

Can you volunteer in Spain without a visa?

Non-European Union (EU) citizens intending to volunteer in Spain must obtain a volunteer visa to ensure legal entry and stay within the country. The main requirement for this visa is a formal invitation from a Spanish organization or association hosting the volunteer program.

 

Where to volunteer in Spain?

The best place to volunteer depends on the type of volunteering you want to do. If you are interested in marine conservation projects, head to coastal areas. If you are more interested in community projects, look for programs in bigger cities.
