Pista Mágica is a non-profit association, recognised as a Non-Governmental Development Organisation (NGDO) that believes in the vast potential of volunteering and active citizenship as ways to transform society.
Being the first Volunteer School in Portugal, launched in July 2008, it is a social innovation project, composed of elements with extensive experience and skills in the area of complementary universes and common values.
In twelve years of experience in the field and knowledge creation, we have grown – in size, in scope, and in the desire to fulfil a Mission that has been gaining new outlines: that of contributing to a greater culture of volunteering and citizenship – conscious and committed – in Portugal and the world. We seek to reinvent ourselves and, today, we are not only a School, but also an organisation ready to operationalise and manage volunteer programmes.
Our path, that does not cease, is made up of more than 30,000 trained people, 16 implemented projects (nationally and internationally), 11 published books and manuals and a team committed to continuing to grow wings for a more attentive and voluntary world.
