Academia Bariloche offers you the possibility to combine Spanish courses with volunteer work. You can work in different organizations and projects in Bariloche, discovering very particular problems and benefiting people in many sectors. Share your time, ideas and skills with Argentineans and discover their culture in a unique way!

We consider volunteer work as an exchange whereby the volunteer in social organizations offers his work and the organization offers a space to share experiences. Receiving a volunteer implies integrating him into daily routines, allowing him to get to know one's way of life. Being a volunteer, for us, is not an act of charity. It is a way of getting to know and to respect other cultures.

We work with various organizations and you will have to pay neither for our help in organizing your volunteer work, nor for actually working there. If the volunteer organization depends on donations, Academia Bariloche will make this contribution, not you.

In all cases we ask you to take a minimum of three weeks of regular Spanish classes at Academia Bariloche .

Our program is for all students willing to share their energy and time for a period of at least 4 weeks on a concrete project. There is no age limit.

There is no better way to learn Spanish and live a full cultural immersion.
