Volunteer programs in Latin America

by Paqui

Last week we had Pedro, the director of our Spanish school in Guanajuato, visiting us here in Salamanca. He told us about don Quijote's beautiful school in Mexico, about the students (here is a picture), and about the volunteer programs.

If you want to learn or improve Spanish adding a special something to your Spanish course, try our volunteer programs in México.

don Quijote offers you a four week Spanish course followed by a four week volunteer experience in various social institutions. A chance to work with people less fortunate and make a difference in their lives. While helping those in need you will be able to improve your Spanish and enjoy the beautiful Mexican city of Guanajuato.

Volunteer programs are also available in Ecuador, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Peru and Guatemala.

For 6 months I had the amazing opportunity to work and live in Buenos Aires. I gained valuable work experience as well as was able to practice my spanish! I lived in the west of Grand Buenos Aires in a pretty surburb called Ramos Mejia. The great thing about Ramos Mejia was that there weren't many foreigners so it wasn't a touristy area (like in the Capital where everyone could speak a bit of english).

During my stay I worked at Fundación Ciclo, building international connections between the foundation and others by searching for and contacting various organizations through the world wide web. On certain days I taught English classes, which was so much fun. All of my students were really sweet and eager to learn.

The Foundation provided me with low cost housing as well as a small monthly stipend to help me out with minimal expenses. What was really cool is that the Foundation also gave us the option to live with an Argentine family!

If you want to check it out go to www.ciclobsas.com or you can e-mail elam@ciclobsas.com, (You can even tell them that I told you about it!)
