Be a part of building a better future for underprivileged youth by offering time and support at an after school program at a community center. Volunteers will
organize games and sports, do arts and crafts, and lead after school activities.

Volunteers will work with a nonprofit that helps youth living in socially
marginalized and extremely impoverished areas of Argentina. They run an
after school program that puts on meals and activities with the goal of
providing the healthy development, happiness, and hopeful future for children
living in Ciudad Oculta, a shanty town in southern Buenos Aires.

This program also has the option of taking Spanish classes in an International Spanish Institute located in Buenos Aires. Taking classes in the morning and volunteering in the afternoon. If you are from a Spanish speaking country we can offer the program without the Spanish classes and at a different hosting fee.

The activities change each day and volunteers can sign up for all 5 days each
week or just the days they want to participate in, making this an ideal option for
those looking for flexibility in their volunteer commitment.

VOLUNTEER TASKS

Volunteer activities occur every day of the week in the afternoons and volunteers can pick and choose which they participate in. Here are some
of the activities available:

● Fútbol game
● Arts and crafts
● Birthday parties
● Preparation of snacks

VOLUNTEER SITE LOCATION

Each afternoon volunteers will meet at a previously confirmed meeting point in
the city and commute together in a private transport (car or van) to the
community center. The nonprofit mainly runs activities near Ciudad Oculta, a
shanty town in the southern area of the city, however this may change.
