Volunteering with Children with Spanish in Argentina for Teenagers

Live in Cordoba and help local children learn through play while improving your Spanish

Auf einen Blick

Travel to South America and volunteer with children in Argentina, alongside a group of teenagers your age. You’ll support the work of teachers and caregivers at disadvantaged kindergartens or care centres, and focus on helping kids learn through play. You'll also attend Spanish classes throughout your trip, where you can start learning the language or improve what you already know.


Use your energy and enthusiasm to help children by playing educational games, doing arts and crafts, and more. This work is all part of our ongoing efforts to support early childhood education, and teach children important skills. For example, you can play a fun ball game to help kids improve their hand-eye coordination.


You’ll live and work with a group your age in the vibrant city of Cordoba. When you’re not working, we’ve organised social and cultural activities for you to enjoy, along with an exciting weekend trip. Throughout it all, Projects Abroad staff will be at your side to supervise and guide your group.

Is Volunteering in Argentina for High School Students right for me?

This project is the perfect fit for you if you enjoy working with children, and want to support local communities while learning Spanish at the same time. Best of all, you’ll be able to do all this while travelling with the support and guidance of experienced Projects Abroad staff. 


This is also a great way to add practical childcare or teaching experience to your CV, which could help your future career. It will help your CV stand out, and give you interesting points to talk about in applications or interviews. You’ll also develop your personal skills, like teamwork, planning, and communication. These skills can be applied to any career you pursue. 


You don’t need previous experience, as you’ll never be left alone at your placement. You’ll work with local staff, and your Projects Abroad supervisor will be there to help you if you need it.


This group trip for teenagers runs over fixed dates in the summer, and you can choose the dates that best fit your schedule. It has a set itinerary, so everything you do from the moment you step off the plane has been organised for you. Our staff are there every step of the way to guide you.

What will I do on this project?

High school students volunteering with children in Argentina support the work of local teachers and caregivers, and help children learn through play at a kindergarten or care centre. Here are some of the tasks you will get involved with:  


  • Help children learn through play and run educational activities and fun games
  • Encourage children to practise good hygiene everyday
  • Have Spanish classes with a qualified language teacher
  • Explore Argentina with volunteers your age from around the world

Your project will be divided into four main areas:


Help children learn through play


Your main role will be to help children learn through play. Through fun and educational activities and games, they’ll become more engaged and likely to remember what they’ve learned. You can do things like:


  • Sing a song to teach basic English
  • Practise counting through a numbers game
  • Play a ball game to improve hand-eye coordination
  • Read stories with small groups to improve literacy


Encourage children to practise good hygiene everyday


Hygiene is a very important part of keeping children healthy. As parents and guardians often work long hours, you can help by encouraging kids to practice good hygiene at every opportunity. Remind them to wash their hands after using the bathroom, and before they eat a meal. You can also show them how to thoroughly brush their teeth.


Have Spanish classes with a qualified language teacher


During your time in Argentina, you’ll have intensive Spanish classes everyday for at least three hours. These classes are taught by a qualified language teacher, and they’ll be aimed at your level. So you can join as a complete beginner, or as a teenager who wants to practice having conversations.


Work with volunteers from around the world


You’ll work with teenagers from around the world, and share in this exciting experience abroad. There will be plenty for you to learn from your new friends, like the customs and cultures in their home countries. During social and cultural activities, you will all learn about life in Cordoba together. All of your activities, including your weekend trip, are supervised by Projects Abroad staff.


Where in Argentina will I be working?

Cordoba

The city is home to nearly 350,000 people. As you explore with your group and our staff, you’ll see the city has plenty to offer in terms of history, culture, and architecture.

                                                                                                                                                              

You will work with children in kindergartens and care centres. They will be less developed than the childcare centres you’re used to at home.

What are the aims and impact of this project?

The main aim of this project is to support the work of dedicated local teachers and caregivers at kindergartens and care centres in Argentina.


The childcare centres we work with in Argentina have limited funding and educational resources. There is also a high ratio of children to teachers, and they need extra pairs of helping hands.


We need your help to give them the support they need. You’ll do this by helping the children learn through play, and working with teachers to make sure the kids are learning the skills they need. This is part of our ongoing efforts to support early childhood education. We also work to improve hygiene levels and raise literacy and numeracy levels.


The secondary aim of this project is to give you the opportunity to travel and expand your horizons as a teenager. You’ll learn Spanish, which will help you communicate with local people. We’ll also teach you about the culture and traditions through different activities.


Join us in Argentina on our High School Special, and become part of our long-term efforts to give disadvantaged children the support they need.
