Spend time as a volunteer in child development and provide kids in socially vulnerable positions with activities and extra-curricular engagement.
Volunteers will collaborate with a charitable organization to support children who are homeless as well as conduct visits to the homes of youth.
Volunteers build relationships and provide a structured set of activities such as instruction in English, recreational and sports games, performing and fine arts, cooking, and attending events in the community.
The ideal volunteer for this project is interested in making an impact on the community as well as learning about the realities for children from populations that have faced challenges in Buenos Aires. Participants will put their creativity, compassion, and energy to good use by helping to generate better livelihoods for underprivileged youth.
