Are you worried about the social aspects of the culture you are visiting? Do you want to help people who are in need?
A volunteer program can open the door to many new and exciting opportunities. It also opens hearts and gives you the wonderful chance to experience local life first-hand, in addition to giving something back to the community.
Volunteering in Buenos Aires can be both challenging and rewarding, but one thing is for sure – you will come back with a real sense of personal achievement.
Our volunteers can participate in a wide variety of projects within the fields of community development, education, health care, and environmental conservation in Argentina.
