Destination info

There is no better place to learn a new language and completely immerse yourself in South American culture than in Buenos Aires. Where the nightlife never stops, football is a religion and tango is a way of life. It is one of the most lively and diverse cities in the world and often referred to as the “Paris of the South”, voted in the top 10 destinations for European travellers.

  • Location: Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city in Argentina and one of the most exciting cities in the world. Located on the Rio de la Plata River, over one-third of teh population live here, making it a great place to experience the culture and local life in Argentina. Buenos Aires has a strong European influence with grand architecture and a rich culture.

 

Whilst volunteering at your project, weekends will be your free time for you to get out and explore this amazing city. There's loads to see and do; from the city's main landmarks and monuments of the Obelisk, Plaza de Mayo and Casa Rosada, to the city's parks, botanical gardens, zoo and markets.

 

Argentina is the birthplace of tango, so you could use your free time to take some lessons, learn the moves and impress your friends and family back home. If you don't fancy trying it out for yourself, there are always tango shows going on around the city, an activity not to be missed!

 

Another great way to experience the culture is to go to a football game. Football is a religion in Argentina and the locals are football crazy. Even if you're not a football fan you're sure to enjoy the incredible atmosphere.

 

If you're not too tired from all the exciting things you'll be getting up to in the day, the city should definitely be experienced at night, when it really comes to life. Buenos Aires is renowned for its buzzing nightlife, trendy clubs and bars. And when you need to recover from the night before, there are plenty of coffee shops for you to chill out and recharge your batteries in, whilst nursing your sore head and watching the world go by.

 

Social activities are provided on a daily basis, and some of these are even included in the price!

Your programme starts on Monday at 8am so you'll need to be up bright and early to make your way to the language school. You'll have an informal Spanish test to determine which class you will be in to ensure you get the most out of your time at the language school.

 

Once all this is out of the way you can get started! You'll meet your teacher and your classmates and then the learning will begin! You'll have classes for the rest of the morning, but don't worry, there are plenty of coffee breaks throughout the morning.

 

After lunch, you will take a city tour with the coordinators and other travellers for the rest of the afternoon. You will be shown the main sights in the city, the best ways to get around, where cheap internet cafes, post offices, banks and local amenities are. This is a great introduction to the city and to your time in Argentina and of course a great way to get to know your fellow volunteers and make new friends straight away!

To help you get the most out of your time away in Argentina, we include a one week Spanish Language Course at a fantastic language school in Buenos Aires, at the beginning of your programme. The course will not only help develop and improve your Spanish language skills but help you communicate better with the locals, your fellow volunteers and of course help you to get more involved at your volunteer project.

 

The classes include reading, writing, listening and of course speaking; they are designed to be as interactive and engaging as possible to give you a good introduction to the language and immersion into Spanish Culture. The course is a great way to start your programme, build your confidence with the language and get you ready for your Argentina volunteer programme that follows. 

Volunteer Weeks: 3 to 10 weeks

  • Location: Buenos Aires

This programme focuses on working closely with locals who are impoverished and lack basic amenities and services that we may take for granted. Some of these locals have been forced to live on the streets or live in areas that lack basic necessities such as running water and paved roads. Many of these people do not have access to a proper education, food or child care services and are unable to break the cycle of poverty.

 

By lending a hand on this worthwhile volunteer project, you'll be providing desperately needed assistance to some of the most vulnerable and forgotten residents in Buenos Aires.

 

Tasks will depend on the needs of our projects at any given time but can range from:


• Provide daily assistance to local residents
• Receive and organise shipments (food, clothing, supplies)
• Spend quality time with residents
• Assist in health and safety workshops
• Preparing meals / working in the kitchen
• Cleaning / tidying
• Participate in activities
• Reading to people
• Providing a friendly face / support
• Recreational activities

No matter which tasks you undertake during your time as a volunteer, you will find the programme a rewarding experience.

Additional Information & FAQs

Minimum age

Minimum age 18 years old.

 

Accommodation

You will be staying in a safe and basic but comfortable shared apartment in the capital city, Buenos Aires. It is a self-catering option but great for volunteers who want to be independent and live as the locals do. You will be sharing with at least one other person, the host of the apartment, and have your own private room while sharing communal living areas. 

 

Meals

Your accommodation will be on a self-catering basis, so you will need to arrange your own meals during your stay. You can either buy meals out locally or buy produce and prepare your own meals in the kitchen at the apartment. Food in Argentina is relatively cheap for South America.

 

Is this trip for you?

Reality Check
All volunteers will be required to take a 1-week Spanish course before starting their volunteer programme. Even if you can speak Spanish to a high level, it is still necessary to take the lessons because the Argentina accent and dialect can be difficult to understand. The course will not only increase your language skills but help you communicate better with your peers and fellow volunteers. The more Spanish you can speak, the greater you will be able to get involved in activities as English may not always be spoken.

 

Advice & Safety

Throughout your programmes you will have the support and guidance of the programme co-ordinator and team. You will be provided with competent assistance and help with any questions or advice you may need during your stay.

 

You will be assigned a personal travel advisor who will co-ordinate your programme with you. Feel free to contact them at any time before you go, or when you are on your travels.

 

In addition, you will have access to a 24 hour emergency contact number so you can contact one of our UK staff at any time should you need to.
