We know how hard it can be to volunteer next to your job, your family life or even next to other volunteering work you may do. Therefore, we offer many various sorts of volunteering, of which the majority is completely flexible, meaning you can choose when and how to help, either one-to-one or in our classes.
All our current class activities are safely carried out online and that also includes all volunteer possibilities. During the few in-person activities that we do when Covid-restrictions allow us, we strictly adhere to ANY Covid-measure that we are obliged to keep into account (and even a bit more strict).
New: one-time volunteering through Masterclasses
While before we were only searching for more steady volunteers, we have now introduced a new way of one-time volunteering: giving a Masterclass to our students and grads!
Use your technical, employability or other professional experience to develop and give a masterclass and get to know MigraCode while gaining great teaching/training experience.
Just a few requirements
Experience in and knowledge of the field you would like to support us with. We don’t have a large management team so you need to be able to work independently
A good level of English is required to help at Migracode Barcelona. Speaking Spanish, Catalan and/or Arabic is considered to be a great advantage
Of course we also understand you want to get professional experience – which you will -, but the main reason for joining Migracode should be an intrinsic motivation to support vulnerable groups
