Volunteer at a kindergarten and help less privileged children
 
Working with local 3 and 4 year-olds from Córdoba is a great way to go behind the scenes of Argentine culture. Just by interacting with the children, playing games and teaching them tidbits of Spanish, you’ll learn a great deal about Argentine family life and values. Working with kids is one of the most authentic cultural experiences you’ll ever have.  
 
Your role as a volunteer 
 
As a volunteer you'll be expected to have a predisposition to work in teams with the regular staff and international volunteers. The key to really seize the experience is to be open and to be proactive. Those qualities will be highly valued. Kids will want to know everything about you so you'll be able to share your background with them and vice versa. On this project you'll have to show all that love you have for children.
