Volunteer programs in Morocco

About Morocco

About Morocco

Morocco is one of the most famous and visited countries in North Africa. The country shares a border with Algeria, Mauritiana and also Spain, given its border with the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla. The Strait of Gibraltar separates the country from Europe.

Morocco’s diverse geography shines a light on the wide range of cultural influences, given the country’s strategic location. Its territory comprises everything from the snow-tipped Atlas Mountains, baking stretches of the Sahara Desert, plains in the north and various coastal locations which are perfect for extreme sports.

Besides its landscapes, Morocco also captivates the volunteers thanks to its culture. It is one of the best destinations for simultaneously getting to know Africa while also discovering the Muslim culture.

Climate in Morocco

In Morocco, the months of April and October are usually rainy. During July and August (summer in the northern hemisphere), the temperatures are hotter. This is especially the case in the parts close to the desert, where there is a very arid climate.

Spring and autumn are the most popular seasons to visit the country.

In Morocco, it’s common to get around via land-based forms of transport such as motorbike, bus, taxi or train.

This is one of the few African strikers with a good rail infrastructure. With regards to road transport, visitors should take into account an issue regarding punctuality. If you’re thinking of taking a bus somewhere, you should note that the bus won’t start its journey until it is filled. Similarly, if you’re considering taking a taxi, don’t be surprised if the taxi doesn’t start its journey until more people jump into the back. In Morocco, it’s very common to share taxis.

Be patient and take your time. In Africa, the concept of time is very different.

Program goals

Our programs

Teaching volunteer program – Midelt – Morocco

This volunteer program aims to organize activities for young people during their school holidays.

The Summer School is held in July and August. During this period, volunteers will visit various schools where they will assist in coordinating a variety of activities, including sports events, study sessions, and artistic workshops, among others. This program is interactive, and volunteers are tasked with providing additional activities (whether recreational, educational, or team-oriented) to keep the children engaged during their summer break.

Throughout this program, volunteers are encouraged to use their initiative and be proactive. There is no fixed curriculum or schedule, so ideas for activities are welcome! Activities can range from games and language teaching to even cleaning.

Typically, the summer school schedule is divided into two sessions. In the morning, volunteers will spend approximately 3 hours assisting with educational activities, games, arts and crafts, basic language lessons (English, French, or Spanish), and painting and decoration workshops. In the afternoon, volunteers will continue with painting and decoration workshops, language lessons (English, French, and Spanish), gardening activities, school and volunteer house cleaning, or simply enjoying their free time.

Teaching volunteer program – Tazouka – Morocco

During the school period, volunteers participate in classes at various primary schools.

In Morocco, the second language is typically French, but society is adept at learning foreign languages, so it’s beneficial if the volunteer can teach English or Spanish at a basic level or assist in advancing French studies.

In addition to language instruction, volunteers can also engage in teaching mathematics, geography, or arts and crafts. These subjects are interactive and facilitate communication between the volunteer and the students.

The program’s schedule depends on the day-to-day activities. Generally, volunteers attend in the morning for 3 hours to teach subjects. In the afternoons, activities vary throughout the week. Some afternoons, volunteers spend 2 and a half hours on teaching activities, while others involve entertainment activities, cleaning the center and accommodation, or free time.

Please note that there are no classes from October 23 to October 30, 2022, from December 04 to December 11, 2022, from January 22 to January 29, 2023, and from April 29 to May 07, 2023.

Our volunteers will be able to validate university credits with the aim of traveling in a more responsible and economical way.

What does volunteering focused on university practices involve?

At Cooperating Volunteers, we make agreements with different universities to validate university credits with the aim of traveling in a more responsible and economical way.

The specialties we work with are extensive: medical volunteering, nursing, education, social work, psychology, physiotherapy, engineering, architecture…

The practices can be carried out in our designated destinations for this purpose, as well as in Spain.

If you choose an international destination, it’s a unique way to live an unforgettable and enriching experience, as you will have the opportunity to continue your education in another country, with a completely different culture.

Stepping out of our comfort zone and being part of the various projects at the destination will allow us to grow both personally and professionally, creating a more extensive curriculum.

And we are fully convinced that this experience will accompany you throughout your life.

You will be able to visit hospitals, schools, centers, orphanages, and participate directly and actively in the daily lives of all those people at the destination, always accompanied by other professionals willing to collaborate hand in hand with you and guide you in daily tasks.

If your university is not part of the agreement with Cooperating Volunteers, you can contact cristina@cooperatingvolunteers.com so that we can get in touch and make this experience a reality.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. 

Spending quality time with family and being able to disconnect from our hectic routines is not only enriching but also necessary.

Sometimes we forget to communicate, connect, and dedicate time to each other. Each one of us lives focused on our jobs, schools… And it’s necessary to find the opportunity to pause and take care of ourselves.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. And of course, it creates lifelong positive memories.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we suggest moving away from those ‘more superficial’ trips (which can also be fantastic), but we invite you to live this experience to bring out our most empathetic and humanitarian side.

Family volunteering gives us the opportunity to be part of a positive impact, promoting values of solidarity and social responsibility.

There are many families who choose to experience these trips focused on cooperation and direct involvement with different communities around the world, where living conditions are very different and sometimes entirely precarious.

Projects are tailored to different ages, allowing us to work together.

An incredible way to fill our suitcase with memories, learning, and knowledge.

And although stepping out of our comfort zone often feels daunting, we assure you firsthand that it’s worth it.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we accompany you throughout the entire experience, from start to finish, to make it unforgettable.


At Cooperating Volunteers, we believe it’s never too late for anything, especially for volunteering and living a unique and unforgettable experience.

There are many people, increasingly so, who opt for responsible travel that involves social work.

Accustomed to organized and mostly touristic trips, at Cooperating Volunteers, we want to advocate for a more enriching experience, one that transforms us from within and allows us to be part of the change the world needs to see.

We can adapt both the destination and the duration of our projects to fit your needs.

It’s an opportunity full of emotions that allows us to significantly contribute to different communities and their evolution. And you can participate in different areas such as education, social support, or assistance in different centers.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Sense of purpose: Provides a sense of purpose by contributing your skills and experiences to meaningful causes.
  • Emotional well-being: Reduces feelings of isolation and establishes social connections.
  • Personal development: It’s continuous learning, skill development, and discovering new activities while keeping the mind-body active.
  • Physical health: Keeping active.
  • Stress reduction: The act of helping others reduces stress and contributes to mental health.

Living this experience will undoubtedly be a before and after. 


A volunteering initiative with leadership and impact through the educational action program.

When we talk about social volunteering, we refer to all those actions and activities carried out altruistically, selflessly, and with the aim of addressing multiple problems and needs of different communities, always focused on education and self-sufficiency.

Education is essential because it provides the tools and knowledge necessary for personal, social, and economic development.

Our goal is to create self-sufficient communities and provide opportunities for the future personal development of each member. The message is not to ‘give’, but to accompany in the process of training for self-managed provision.

At Cooperating Volunteers, many of our destinations and projects embrace this type of volunteering. Some of our projects include: community programs, education, women’s empowerment…

And although they are completely different from each other, they share a single objective: progress towards a society that can embrace us all in the same way.

If you are someone who is restless, who needs to see a change in the future, volunteering is an experience tailor-made for you.
