Are you interested in making a difference in the world? Would you like to practice Spanish whilst helping the lives of other? Volunteering in Argentina is a great way to do both of these things.
After it’s economic struggle in 2001, Argentina has experienced various problems with regards to its financial position, particularly an ever-increasing poverty level and an ever-decling source of funding for education, public services and economic development. Because of these reasons, there has been a rise in the number of charities and non-governmental organizations helping different groups in Argentina to overcome the problems with programmes designed to strengthen communities and prompt local growth. However, despite these troubles, Argentina has remained an incredible country rich in Latin American culture and a safe location to travel to carry out volunteer work.
Elebaires offer a great diversity of volunteer opportunities in Buenos Aires, around Argentina and across South America. These vary from orphanages to ecological projects to educational programmes. This full immersion into the culture provides an authentic experience which many tourists are unable to access, including an exclusive insight in cultural diversities, traditions and day-to-day issues. Moreover, students are able to improve the local communities whilst acquiring meanful work experience. With direct access to our Volunteer Coordinator, we are able to model a programme specifically for you and answer any questions which you may have.
After two to four weeks of lessons at the school, this unique combination of Spanish and volunteer experience presents the perfect environment to continue your learning and discover the Latin American culture whilst helping the lives of others.
