Experience a different side of Buenos Aires as you help a local non-profit organisation working with the children of a disadvantaged inner city community. Volunteers will work at a community day-care program in a socially marginalised and impoverished area where, as a positive role model, you will inspire instant smiles on the faces of the kids you interact with.
The children are typically in school in the morning and spend the rest of the day at the community day-care centre, an important resource for families as it allows them to work whilst providing quality supervision for their kids. By attending this program the children are kept busy and away from the many negative influences which exist here. Some Spanish language ability will be of benefit, though it is certainly not a necessity as you’ll attend language lessons in the mornings and then practice your Spanish here at the project.
Week 2, 3 and 4 (Monday to Friday)
Your mornings in subsequent weeks are free, however if you would like to continue your language development we can arrange another week of daily 4-hour Spanish classes for around AUD$350 – contact us before departure if you would like to do so.
In the afternoons you will continue at the project, further developing the relationships with the children, staff and fellow volunteers.
Your last day (Saturday)
Hasta luego! Like all good things, your program has come to an end. The children will be sad to see you go but the short time that you spent with them will have a long-lasting effect on their early development.
We can arrange a transfer back to the airport for a supplement.
