Come be part of our first home!

We have been home to many people, and the time has come to have our own, so we can welcome them. Are we counting on you to equip the House that will change the world?

The Transformers Movement is a Non-Governmental Organization for Development that exists to solve the problem of lack of civic and social participation in Portugal, stimulating volunteering, associativism and increasing awareness of the problem.

We have been working for 12 years with children and young people at risk, isolated seniors and with young people who want to develop in order to be the next leaders of their communities.

In recent years, we have also been transformed.

We were recognized as a Non-Governmental Organization for Development, we digitized our content, we signed work with the public and private sector, we shared impact studies that prove the relevance of our intervention, we were recognized by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation as a Reference Methodology for the Promotion of Competences in Children and Young People, we have already impacted more than 10,000 young people, we encourage more than 100 volunteer mentors every year.

The team has grown considerably and today we not only promote national volunteering, but student and youth associations and awareness of participation! We have been running the country training young people to be active agents in their communities and to assert themselves as the next generation of conscientious leaders.

We never had a house where we could receive our people. But we decided to take the risk and, starting in August, we will have Casa Transformers in Porto - a space where we can work together, where we will receive our young people, seniors and volunteers for training programs, celebrations, reflections and to think about what future together.

And we need you to equip the space!

Do we count on you?

About the author

The Transformers Movement is a Non-Governmental Organization for Development that exists to solve the problem of lack of civic and social participation in Portugal. I take the opportunity to tell you that, in the course of our work, we have 3 main axes:

The organization has existed for 12 years and has three axes of intervention:

VOLUNTEERING
That materializes in the project Escolas de Super Poderes e Reformers , intervention projects with children and young people at risk and isolated seniors (they currently work with more than 1000 apprentices from 20 cities). These projects are a Reference Methodology of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and their impact has been validated by the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto.

ASSOCIATIVISM
Through two training projects, one focused on secondary school association leaders ( AELEAD ) and the other on youth association leaders or community leaders ( XLEAD ).

AWARENESS
Through the T-Academy , an online civic and social participation community, which appears in the sense of the democratization of knowledge and where content and training opportunities are shared in the areas of volunteering, participation, creativity, non-formal education, activism, development goals sustainability, associativism and much more!
