Childcare in

Children born into marginalised 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.

Childcare volunteer in Buenos Aires, Argentina with IVHQ

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.

    Childcare in

    For school children in disadvantaged areas of Córdoba, it’s not uncommon to have to leave school in order to financially support their families. Investment in early childhood development is seen as being critical to breaking the poverty cycle in Argentina and volunteers play an important role in this respect.

    If you’re someone who loves interacting with young children and sparking their enthusiasm to learn, this is the project for you! By introducing new cultures and ideas, you can help to broaden children’s perspectives and stimulate their curiosity.

    Childcare volunteer in Cordoba Argentina with IVHQ

    Volunteers work with children in either a kindergarten, daycare center or soup kitchen placement. Typical activities on this project include educational games, arts and crafts, sports or simply playing and sharing affection with the children.

    As you will be volunteering with the support of local placement staff, you don’t need to be a qualified or experienced in childcare to participate. A passion for working with children and initiative is key to being a successful Childcare volunteer.

    Please note that during the holiday period from mid-December to the end of February, volunteers will either assist in outdoor children’s summer holiday programs at local public swimming pools, or on other projects, subject to availability. There is also a 2-week school vacation in July, and volunteers are required to switch to another project during this time.

        Construction and Renovation in

        Charities are responsible for running a number of important community projects in Buenos Aires, but they do so with no financial aid from the government. They often rely on local volunteers and donations for their day-to-day operations, and it makes vital renovation and maintenance work much harder to accomplish.

        Construction and Renovation volunteers in Buenos Aires play a crucial role in providing the hands-on help needed to support these local initiatives that, in turn, support the people who live in the local community.

        You’ll focus on renovation and maintenance activities within local schools, soup kitchens and other community spaces in low-income areas of Buenos Aires.

        Construction and Renovation volunteer in Buenos Aires, Argentina with IVHQ

        This project is well suited to hard-working volunteers who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and are willing to provide support wherever help is most needed. Your tasks can include painting, repairing furniture and equipment, tiling, gardening, or assisting in the construction of internal walls and bathrooms. This kind of work goes a long way to make the buildings safer and more attractive, making them more appealing to members of the community and enhancing the impact they can have.

        You are not required to have previous experience in construction or renovation in order to join this project, as you will be volunteering alongside local staff and volunteers from the surrounding communities.

        This project has an extra cost of US$35 (approximately £27) per week for supervision, materials and the logistics involved. This amount will be included in the Program Fee quoted that is quoted to you when you apply for the program.

          For smaller communities around Córdoba, community spaces are popular hubs for local people to meet and socialise. They can help with childcare, leisure activities and other aspects of daily life, but can equally fall into disrepair without regular maintenance.

          As a volunteer on this project, you will have the unique opportunity to work alongside local people to help improve their community infrastructure. Your tasks may include renovating buildings, painting, landscaping, gardening and building new rooms or spaces. Projects and volunteer roles will vary during the year, depending on where help is most needed in the community.

            Elderly Care in

            For some elderly people in Córdoba, their latter years can pose new and confronting challenges as they deal with a lack of resources, loneliness and even abandonment. However, local community centers, and the volunteers that contribute to them, are a safe place that provide important care and company.

            As a volunteer, you will provide encouragement, protection and assistance to older people. By keeping the elders company during their scheduled activities you can provide valuable assistance to local staff, as well as socialisation and interaction that can make someone’s day.

            You’ll help with daily meals and recreational activities, including art workshops, yoga, singing, adapted gymnastics, hairdressing, podiatry and professional psychological assistance. When the need arises, you may also be sent to a local nursing home, where you will work alongside staff and help take care of elders who may be ill and will need special care.

            This project is well suited to volunteers who are patient and caring by nature and willing to interact, learn from and provide care to older people. As you’ll be volunteering alongside local staff members, you don’t need to have any prior experience working with the elderly to take part in this project.

            Please note that some knowledge of Spanish is recommended so that you are able to easily interact with locals. The project is closed from mid-December until March, and for two weeks in July. Those looking to volunteer during this time will change to a different project.

              This is a great opportunity to shadow and assist doctors and nurses in a modern healthcare environment. Help in one of the largest teaching clinics in Buenos Aires, or in smaller clinics, where a wide range of medical specialties are available.

              Healthcare in

              Shadowing and observing practicing medical professionals can be a huge learning opportunity, particularly for medical students. This project provides an excellent chance to observe healthcare practices in real life, and in a different cultural setting. There’s also a wide variety of medical specialties that volunteers are able to get involved in.

              The Healthcare project in Buenos Aires is open to medical students, nursing students and healthcare professionals. Argentine law prevents students from doing hands-on medical work with patients unless it’s under the supervision of a local professional, which means this only happens rarely. However, there is still plenty to be gained by seeing a modern healthcare system in action.

              As a volunteer on this project, you’ll assist the local medical staff in one of the biggest teaching clinics in Buenos Aires. For those interested in working in specific areas of healthcare, you can also volunteer in other nearby clinics which provide a wide range of minor, moderate and major healthcare services to the community. Specialty services provided by these clinics include general medicine and surgery, nursing, pediatrics, physiology, dentistry, gynecology, x-ray, ultrasound and mental health.

              Healthcare volunteer in Buenos Aires, Argentina with IVHQ

              Qualified professionals may be able to assist in more of a hands-on role, but that should not be expected. All volunteers will be shadowing local staff when you first begin the program and familiarise yourself with the environment. Further duties will be determined by your level of training, demonstrated expertise, Spanish language level, personality and ability to take initiative.

              This project is open to medical and nursing students at all levels, including pre-medical, as well as fully qualified healthcare professionals. An intermediate (B2) level of Spanish is also required.

              There is a US$65 (approximately £51) per week surcharge on this project, for the extra supervision, materials and logistics involved. This amount will be included in the Program Fee quoted that is quoted to you when you apply. It is also recommended that volunteers bring your own medical scrubs, latex gloves and stethoscope.

              Once you have registered, you will need to provide a copy of your qualifications and certificates to our local team in Argentina. If you are studying, please provide a copy of your academic transcript. These must be received by our local team at least two weeks prior to your arrival in Buenos Aires.

                Shadow and observe local professionals in community clinics across disadvantaged areas of Córdoba. Clinics provide general care, nursing services, dentistry, social services and other aspects of healthcare.

                Healthcare in

                The healthcare system in Córdoba is built around many small community clinics that provide general and specialist care, particularly across low-income neighborhoods. These clinics provide general medical care, nursing services, vaccinations, gynaecology, dentistry, social support and other primary health attention.

                Volunteers are able to get involved in these different areas, acting in a shadowing capacity with local professionals and socialising with patients. Argentine laws prevent students from touching patients without the supervision of a professional, but there are plenty of learning experiences to be had by observing a modern, functional health system in action.

                If you’re someone who has an interest in international healthcare systems within vulnerable communities, this project will be a great choice for you.

                Healthcare volunteering in Cordoba, Argentina with IVHQ

                Your independence will be determined by your level of training, demonstrated expertise, Spanish language level, personality and ability to take initiative. Depending on your supervisor, you may be able to take blood pressure, administer vaccinations, weigh/measure babies, treat small wounds and carry out other minor tasks.

                This project is open to pre-medical, medical and nursing students as well as fully qualified doctors and healthcare professionals. However, because of the mostly observational nature of your duties, experienced volunteers wanting hands-on work may be able to better utilise their skills on another project. Intermediate Spanish is also required, and you also need to bring your own medical scrubs.

                Please note that this project has a 2 week minimum duration requirement. Although the Healthcare project operates year-round, during January and February volunteers can expect reduced volunteer hours (morning shifts only). In these times, you can use your spare time to contribute to another project, subject to availability. You will need to bring your own medical scrubs to wear while volunteering in the clinics. Once you have registered for the program, you will need to provide a copy of your qualifications and certificates to our local team in Argentina. If you are studying, you’ll be asked to provide a copy of your academic transcript.

                  Special Needs Care in

                  For young people growing up with disabilities, being able to have effective, regular care can make a genuine difference to their lives. The aim of this project is to provide these young adults with useful tools for their active development, stimulating independence and integration within their families and local communities.

                  Your tasks may include facilitating workshops or classes, organising events and supporting therapeutic activities. Working with the disabled can be emotionally challenging but also extremely rewarding, and this project is well suited to volunteers with a warm, caring nature and a basic understanding of Spanish.

                  You aren’t required to have experience working with the disabled to participate, as our local placement staff are on hand to support and guide you in the daily tasks.

                  Please note this project will experience disruptions during the Christmas and New Year holiday period due to some placement closures, and from January to mid February. During this time, and for a two week holiday period in July, volunteers can supplement their time on other projects, subject to availability.

                    Sports Education in

                    Sports can be an effective tool to strengthen communities, improve someone’s quality of life and support their education.

                    As a volunteer on the Sports Education project, you’ll help local Physical Education teachers to achieve this goal. You’ll be placed on an integrative educational project, which aims to address the holistic issues that lead to poverty and illiteracy in low-income communities in southern Buenos Aires.

                    You’ll assist a qualified local teacher to facilitate coaching sessions, drills, games and activities for children and teenagers in primary schools and on after school programs.

                    Sports Education volunteer in Buenos Aires, Argentina with IVHQ

                    The local children particularly love football and hockey, although volunteers are encouraged to introduce new games and sports of your own. If you’re passionate about a particular sport, we encourage bringing some equipment from home, or purchasing it in Argentina, as the placements typically have limited resources beyond the main local sports.

                    Volunteers with an interest in swimming may also have the opportunity to help during swimming lessons at a local pool.

                    Please note this project is closed during the school holidays, from mid December to end of February/mid-March.

                      Sports in

                      For children and teenagers growing up in disadvantaged areas of Córdoba, time spent on the street can often see them fall into bad habits. It’s important to keep them occupied in their leisure time with positive activities, and sport is a fantastic way to do that.

                      The aim of this project is to provide young people with fun sports and recreational activities outside school. Volunteers work with local staff to help arrange and run sports games such as basketball and football. You’ll typically help out on this project Monday to Friday, from 6pm to 9pm.

                      Please note this project takes place in outdoor areas and the daily activities will therefore depend on the weather. During school holidays from December-February, volunteers assist on government-run Summer School programs for children at swimming pools, and adding value to other outdoor leisure activities.

                        This is a unique opportunity to assist in an integrative educational project that addresses issues relating to poverty and illiteracy in low-income communities.

                        Volunteers work in local schools in southern Buenos Aires, which are typically regarded as having fewer opportunities. There, the integrated approach focuses on education and social inclusion with whole families instead of individual children. It also involves bringing different social groups within the school together.

                        Volunteers can be hugely influential on this project by helping local teachers with English lessons, adding skills as a fluent or native English speaker to help both primary and secondary school-aged children. Your support in assisting with pronunciation and providing additional guidance and support to the children within the class can make a big difference. You may also have the opportunity to assist in other areas, including music and art lessons.

                        This project is well suited to volunteers eager to help teach English abroad, especially to enthusiastic children who will gain a lot by improving their language skills.

                        As you will be volunteering with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you do not need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to participate on this project. However, we encourage you to come prepared by completing some relevant training. Visit our Online TEFL Course page to learn how to gain an internationally-recognised TEFL certification at a discounted rate.

                        An intermediate (B1/B2) Spanish-speaking ability is recommended, though is not required as you’ll be working alongside local placement staff.

                        Please note that due to school holidays, this project is closed from mid-December to between the end of February and mid-March.
