Extracurricular internship

The ICFS was inspired by the Social Tourism Project executed several times by the French ONG Atelier Jeunes et Partage of ABEJ.

This project has as main objective the professional exchange as well as humanitarian actions.

Through this action professionals (with basic fluency in Portuguese language) were welcomed by ICFS partners and developed actions in their internship fields.

The internships are initially EXTRA CURRICULAR form, in which the student uses his vacation to do so.

Ribeirão Preto, Recife and Brasilia are our current cities receiving interns.

Psychology, Social Work, Tourism, Electrical Engineering and Agronomy are the main fields for the interships.

The internship program will be guided by the ICFS.

The internships have a duration of 90 days, which is the visa allowance for tourists in Brazil. The student can apply every year, if he/she wants to.

Only students over 18 years old are allowed to the project, legal age for some of Brazilians formalities.

These internships are only for students over the age of 18, the oldest in Brazil, and will be within the formalities of the immigration agencies of the two countries.



After our first contact with a local ONG – Qualify to Include (QPI) for which ICFS Brazil did some actions to raise funds and subsequent donations of bureaucratic technical materials, we began our process and evaluate the possibilities of installing ourselves in the city of Porto.

The current situation of Portugal in the face of international tourism, with several awards as the best tourist destination, contributed to the decision to found ICFS Portugal.

The ICFS Portugal has as its statutory objectives:

Promote philanthropic events to raise funds for their actions, as well as support projects of other associations of equal content;

Promote local, national and international educational campaigns on current and public interest topics;

Develop actions against commercial and sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism in line with ECPAT International’s code of conduct;

Promote good practices and campaigns to prevent pregnancy in adolescents;

Promote campaigns and actions to prevent the violation of children and adolescents rights;

Stimulate the youth professional development the exchange through our projects.

The ICFS Portugal, like the other ICFSs, is a civil society association, philanthropic and non-profit organization. All the financial resources collected in its actions are invested in the ONG’s actions.
