Children born into marginalized communities in Buenos Aires have fewer opportunities available to them, and have a higher likelihood of not fulfilling their potential. However, with good support networks and strong nurturing, their outlook on life can be much improved.
Volunteers on the Childcare project in Buenos Aires play an important role in providing support by working in a local soup kitchen. You create a safe environment for the children, by encouraging them to stay off the streets and engage in activities that develop their skills and provide valuable exposure to the English language.
Volunteers support the local staff by facilitating games, activities and providing meals for up to 45 children and teenagers each day. Activities can vary, but typically include arts and crafts, songs and games.
This project is perfectly suited to volunteers with plenty of energy and enthusiasm for working with children. Previous experience or qualifications in early childhood education will be an advantage, as will basic Spanish-speaking skills, but these are not required as you’ll be working under the guidance of local staff.Apply now
