Voluntary Work Buenos Aires

Special is in Buenos Aires that a few projects give you the opportunity to work a few hours a day. So you can have in the morning classes and work in the afternoon in an orphanage, a homeless shelter, help training dogs for handicapped children or work in eateries for the poor. Of course starters who don’t speak any Spanish need classes in advance to be able to talk with the people. If you have an intermediate level, so you can have a simple conversation, there are opportunities to start working immediately. During the Spanish classes the school will test your level and interview you to find out which project will suit you best. Starters can count on 4 weeks of classes, if you speak already a little bit you can count on 2 or 3 weeks of classes.
