Coordinating the voluntary work in Buenos Aires is one of my main tasks during my internship in Argentina at AMAUTA Elebaires Spanish School. It gives me the opportunity to work in one of the most beautiful buildings of Buenos Aires – the Barolo Palace – and to meet people from all over the world who come to Buenos Aires to learn Spanish and to do volunteer work.
But before I meet these people in Buenos Aires, here at the school we’ve already one some work. First the placement and first meeting with the volunteer project should be arranged, which means; sending emails, waiting, calling, waiting, asking for confirmation, waiting, checking again if everything is confirmed and then waiting again. Working in Argentina sometimes puts your patience to the test; this is also one of the many reasons why doing voluntary work in Argentina is quite a challenge.
