Universidade NOVA de Lisboa is committed to the social responsibility of its academic community, organizing and supporting actions of social and community interest in order to respond to the needs that continually emerge from our society.
Besides the activities that schools promote throughout the year, NOVA has recently joined Ajudamos.pt, a network of portals that shares volunteering projects that any person may join and apply to.
Ajudamos.pt, launched in October of 2017 by Universia with the support of the Santander Group, seeks to gather the demand and supply of volunteering activities in the whole country. Besides a main portal that centralizes the volunteering offers, the platform also includes several portals for each of the several higher education institutions, associations, NGO’s and IPSS (Portuguese private charity institutions) to promote their activities in a free and simple way.
The platform is open to everyone but is mainly focused on the university public, having in mind the creation of a university volunteering community with national and international offers.
