Ever thought about traveling to Rio de Janeiro for Carnival and working as a volunteer at the same time? Join our Carnival project and dive deeply into Brazilian culture and society! Since we are working together with a samba school, you will participate in the preparation for the great day of the parade at the Sambódromo in Rio. People join for rehearsal several months before Carnival and begin constructing the floats, designing the costumes. You will have a deeper understanding of the work behind the scenes, since you will see how passionate the Cariocas are about Carnival. They come together in solidarity, dance and leave behind all social bounderies.
