Academia Buenos Aires
Focus: Child development,Community and Education.
Academia Buenos Aires offers you the possibility to combine Spanish courses with volunteer work. You can work in different organizations and projects in Buenos Aires, discovering very particular problems and benefiting people in many sectors. Share your time, ideas and skills with Argentinians and discover their culture in a unique way!
We consider volunteer work as an exchange whereby the volunteer in social organizations offers his work and the organization offers a space to share experiences. Receiving a volunteer implies integrating him into daily routines, allowing him to get to know one’s way of life. Being a volunteer, for us, is not an act of charity. It is a way of getting to know and to respect other cultures.
We work with various organizations and you will have to pay neither for our help in organizing your volunteer work, nor for actually working there. If the volunteer organization depends on donations, Academia Buenos Aires will make this contribution, not you.
