All volunteers who came were all really fun and everyone who works at Voluntario Global is lovely – I can’t wait to come back again!

Hi! I'm Kim and I’ve just finished volunteering at Voluntario Global as the Responsible Tourism Co-ordinator, working with the volunteers to help them get the most out of their stay in Buenos Aires. Working in the office of Voluntario Global was a very interesting and rewarding experience, giving me the opportunity to see how the organisation is run and get to know everyone who works there. When new volunteers arrived I helped with their introduction meeting, where we explained about the organisation and projects, as well as giving them tips on how to survive in this big city! Following the presentation I took the volunteers on a tour of Plaza del Congreso, explaining about the buildings and history around the plaza. One of the best aspects of the volunteering experience was organising weekly volunteer activities…from football matches and tango shows to experiencing the BA’s great night life or seeing Oscar winning Argentine films, there was always something to do in this buzzing city. Overall it was fantastic, the volunteers who came were all really fun and everyone who works at Voluntario Global is lovely – I can’t wait to come back again! Check out photos of our events on facebook!!
