Volunteer in Argentina

Support community development while experiencing life in a beautiful South American country

Experience living in South America through voluntary work in Argentina. You’ll learn about day-to-day life directly from local people, while also supporting communities in need.


We have several different volunteer opportunities in Argentina. You can support early childhood development at a disadvantaged care centre, or work with horses and children at a therapy and rehabilitation centre. You can also kickstart your medical career by learning directly from doctors at a local hospital.


We’re based in the metropolitan city of Cordoba, Argentina's second largest city and the capital of the Cordoba Province. Our full-time staff in Argentina are there to support you 24/7 if you need it.


You’re bound to have an exciting and memorable time in Argentina. In your free time, visit the World Heritage Site of Jesuit Estancias or the enormous Mar Chiquita salt lake. Or, explore the slew of hiking trails along the Andes Mountain Range.

Where we are based in Argentina

Cordoba

As a volunteer in Argentina, you’ll live and work in Cordoba. It has good public transport links, both local and long-distance, which makes it convenient for you to travel.


If you enjoy nature, take advantage of the many hiking trails. Stop by Parque Sarmiento, and visit the stunning ancient ruins of Medina Azahara. For culture, check out the local museums and art galleries, and take time to stroll along Paseo De Los Artes.


Be sure to also try Salmorejo, arguably Cordoba’s most famous dish. It’s a delicious blend of tomatoes, bread, oil, and garlic, often garnished with diced Spanish serrano ham and diced hard-boiled eggs.

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

Volunteers on this project arrive at Córdoba International Airport (COR). A Projects Abroad staff member will be waiting to greet you when you arrive. You can find more detailed information on flights, arrival airports, orientation, and visas, on our Argentina Arrival Procedures page.
