We are a network of organizations created to foster collective action based on the principles of social and cognitive justice. Through thought-provoking spaces for reflection, we challenge the conventional narrative of "giving back" and replace it with a more dynamic approach: that of "give and take", where both sides contribute. This premise forces us to deepen our questions, confront our assumptions, and recognize the complexities that arise when attempting to help others.
Our mission is to empower and connect local organizations to promote improvement for the whole community and take a unified approach to community development. We also aim to create a network between volunteers and local organizations in order to foster an exchange of culture and ideas which can help both to grow in different ways.
The organizations and communities where we work are the main pillars of Voluntario Global. Together with local organizations, we determine our objectives and the type of volunteer we need. Put simply, Voluntario Global could not exist without the organizations, as we work together for their development and growth.
We offer a non-conventional course that focuses on the practical application of Spanish for real communication and cultural immersion, particularly when engaging with social projects in Argentina. Our lessons not only cover syntax and grammar but also address the importance of context in language learning. In this course, we will introduce you to the dialect of Spanish language used in Argentina, known as Castellano Rioplatense. You will learn about the current history, politics and social context of Argentina so you can better understand the social problems that affect the projects where volunteers work.
Voluntario Global helps local communities by being available to discuss anything that local organizations need, and offering ideas for further change and development.
