My name's Jack, I'm 19 years old, passionate about football and languages and about to start my degree at University College London.  

From June to July 2018 I spent a month volunteering in the kindergarten in the Barracas neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. When I arrived in Argentina my experience of working with children was restricted to babysitting my younger cousins and my Spanish was rusty and in serious need of some work. However, a month working with the most adorable group of three year old kids taught me so much. I didn't just improve my Spanish imperatives (sit down, stop running, stop jumping...) during a short space of time I became more confident working with the children and developed a close bond with many of them. 

Voluntario Global were extremely supportive through my time at the project, and we kept in close contact throughout.

Volunteering as a collective experience

As we always say, volunteering is a learning process. And a learning process is never isolated. Volunteering is also a collective experience signed by the relation we'll create with the communities we'll work with.
