Volunteer Life in Cordoba

Cordoba’s rapid rate of ongoing development makes it a fun city to live in whilst you complete your volunteer placement.

The city is also brim-full with interesting sites and museums, allowing you to learn more about Argentina’s history and traditions during your placement.

Not to mention that Argentina, as countries go, has one of the best ranges of top-notch material for your bucket list on offer, so consider taking some time to explore more broadly before your placement begins or after its completion. From the tango-fuelled streets of Buenos Aires to the salt flats of the north and mountain ranges of the south, no one can be disappointed here!

When it comes to the practicalities, most volunteer programs will include accommodation either in shared dormitory style housing or a local homestay. This means that most of the costs are covered up front and you only need focus on a budget for weekend travel and evening outings. When choosing a program pay attention to these details - some participants may enjoy a homestay for the opportunities it offers to connect with the locals and further immerse into the culture, whilst others may opt for a shared volunteer house where they have more possibilities to socialize with fellow volunteers.

Meals might also be provided some days as well, helping you to manage your budget, but be sure to make time to sample some of the amazing street food that the city has to offer as well, it’s pretty much unmissable!
