When you come to Argentina, you'll be entering a world full of vibrant color, magnificent scenery and gentle people. Nestled between the stunning Andes Mountains and the great Atlantic Ocean, Argentina possesses a lifestyle and flavor similar to those you might encounter in Italy or Spain. Though Argentina is fascinating and undeniably beautiful, still the country's people are struggling to solve many issues related to poverty, poor education, parenting and community improvement in general. IFRE's Argentina volunteer programs allow you to make a huge difference in the lives of children and in their communities during this critical period.
Take a moment now to send us an email indicating your volunteering area of interest and passion. We will gladly inform you about all the amazing opportunities available in Argentina. Volunteer in Argentina, and it will change your life forever!

Are you considering improving your Spanish language skills? Then IFRE's Argentinean Spanish Language Program is the perfect choice.
IFRE currently offers highly affordable Spanish language classes. These classes are exclusive to IFRE volunteers participating in the Argentina volunteer program. In Argentina, IFRE partners with a highly reputable Spanish school. They employ qualified and experienced Spanish teachers and offer the most intensive and effective Spanish courses in Argentina. In this program, volunteers work at their volunteer project and learn Spanish simultaneously. For example, volunteers can take Spanish classes from 9:00-11:00 AM (before lunch) followed by volunteer activities. Alternatively, volunteers may take Spanish classes from 3:00-4:00 PM (after their day's volunteer work). Most of the projects are located close to the Spanish school, so it is possible for volunteers to design a personal schedule. IFRE invites you to improve your Argentinean experience by learning or improving your Spanish.
IFRE manages your living accommodations in Argentina. In Córdoba, most volunteers live with a host family, but some may live in a hostel. Our host families are socially respected and experienced hosts of international volunteers. They have strong interest in our volunteers' safety and well-being and demonstrate this with caution and care. Host families will prepare two meals a day (breakfast and dinner, no lunch) for volunteers consisting of local ingredients and foods traditional to Argentina. In most host family situations, volunteers will share a room with another volunteer of the same gender. Our host families do not offer laundry services, but some will happily take up the task for a small fee. Córdoba boasts numerous exciting opportunities for volunteers to see a city that maintains echoes of its colonial and culture-rich past. Córdoba's vibrant culture has produced a number of influential writers and its own musical style known as "El Cuarteto" (in addition to classical, jazz, rock, pop and techno). There are also many monuments, lively festivals, pleasant theaters and a pulsing nightlife. Please note that volunteers staying in hostels will be responsible for their own meals. The cost of food is not included in the weekly fee, so please be prepared to budget about $50 a week for food.
Throughout the volunteer project, our local staff stays in contact with volunteers either with face-to-face visits or via email/telephone. Volunteers are always welcome at our local offices in Argentina. If project placement is local, we request that volunteers stop by the office once a week to keep us posted on how they are doing with their home stay and project. If project placement is very far, then our local staff members maintain communication by either email and/or phone and try to visit every 2-4 weeks if possible.
Argentina is a vibrant and colorful country. The country boasts multi-faceted and fascinating cultures. Argentina volunteers experience this broad assortment, as well as many common local traditions during their stay. IFRE's volunteer programs in Argentina are located in and around the extraordinary city of Córdoba. In Córdoba, there are many preserved historical buildings from the noteworthy colonial era. Córdoba is a university city with the oldest university in all of Argentina – the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba was founded in 1613. An amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site is located within the city limits. Córdoba is a pristine and admirable example of a developing city maintaining its culture-filled, picturesque past.
For the duration of their project, volunteers have weekends free. There are a number of things to see and do during this time off. While IFRE does not arrange activities during this time off, our local staff, members and coordinators can provide priceless assistance in making appropriate arrangements for travel throughout Argentina. Most volunteers use this time for self-exploration and countrywide travel. Argentina is one of the most beautiful countries in the world offering plentiful opportunities for an amazingly unique experience. Please feel free to use the resources offered by our Argentinean staff members – travel tips, advice and publications about Argentina.
