Intern at an NGO

I loved my internship with Directorio Legislativo, but what really made the program was being able to live in Buenos Aires. I loved using the extensive city public transport, having almost everything accessible within a 5 min. walking radius, going out at night, and Road2Argentina offers great support to your specific needs. The people who lead the program will help you with whatever you need at anytime if it’s figuring out public transport, adapting to cultural differences, or helping to plan an excursion.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
  • Greatly improved my Castellano (Argentine Spanish) speaking skills.
  • Pasta, milanesas, mate, medialunas, empanadas, asados…!
  • Got to spend time with my family who lives in Argentina.
  • Can get pretty cold during their winter season.
  • Due to cash being the easiest way of payment, it is a transition from US card/Apple Pay based economy.

Road2Argentina Review

Mateo and David at Road2Argentina were wonderful and were always available to help us whenever we needed! Whether it was helping us transfer money, buying a sim card for our phones, or planning activities, they made the transition of working and living in Argentina very smooth. I was there for two months, but I wish I could've stayed longer with how much fun I was having at my internship and with the group. I also gained a lot of new friends from the other students completing the program, and still talk to them today. My experience wouldn't have been as memorable as it was without them and Road2Argentina!

  • Immersive Activities
  • Experiencing Local Culture
  • Less support related to Internship itself

Road2Argentina Experience

I had always dreamt of traveling abroad, to see new countries and learn new cultures. When I found out my school offered a program in Argentina in partnership with road2argentina, I knew it was something I wanted to do. At first, I was a little nervous because it was my first time traveling alone for a long period of time, but Mateo was always there to answer all my questions and help me with the process before leaving to Argentina. When I arrived to Argentina, I met so many amazing people that helped me navigate Buenos Aires. Mateo and David always had something planned each week, and were always available to help me with any question I had. I definitely recommend Road2Argentina, such a wonderful experience!

Road2Argentina work with Fase2

Amazing stuff- very friendly staff and overall an incredible, unforgettable experience which allowed me to develop in many ways, as well as experiencing the argentine culture through the events the company provided free of cost for us (La Bomba del Tiempo and Fuerza Bruta being the best for me) I thought both Mateo and David at Road2Argentina were incredibly inviting and made me feel comfortable at all times, allowing myself to express myself in a new cultural environment, whilst enjoying the language learning process and meeting new, amazing people with a variety of different perspectives on life as well.

  • Met amazing people from a variety of different cultures
  • Improved myself both personally and professionally by working in a camp teaching environment
  • Got the opportunity to experience the argentine culture

Summer 2022 in Buenos Aires

The internship program this past summer with Road2Argentina was absolutely incredible. The support team in Argentina was super friendly and helpful, as well as fun to hang out with. Both my housing situation and my internship work could not have been more perfect as I made lifelong friends and connections during my few months there. Road2Argentina is a great program and if you're considering studying abroad and like food, fun, excitement, adventure, and or are passionate about your work, look no further.

  • Coming from US, extremely favorable exchange rate
  • Friendly people, always felt safe and welcomed
  • Natural beauty, from Iguazu to Patagonia there is no shortage of wonder in Argentina
  • Regional accent, I learned a very basic Spanish in school and the Porteño accent in BA was tough to adjust to
  • While most food was amazing, I like things spicy. Hot sauce, especially good hot sauce, is not easy to come by at all really.
  • Nothing!

Alumni Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with verified alumni.

Why did you choose this program?

I knew I wanted a smaller program that focused on a certain country and I've always wanted to spend an extended amount of time in Argentina. I knew that this specialized program would give me a more personalized experience.

What did your program provider assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

R2A organized transportation from the airport, living arrangements, an internship, and even organized social and cultural activities. They showed me how to arrive at my internship and use public transportation as well. The only thing I had to worry about was making my own meals since I chose to live in an apartment alone!

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

I'd advise them to dress warm if they're going to Argentina during our summer months (June-August). Knowing the language is also a huge advantage since navigating around the city can be hard with no prior language skills.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

Each day I would arrive at my internship and spend the full day there. Other participants would spend half of the day volunteering and half taking Spanish classes. This program gives you the ability to arrange your own schedule with the supervisor of your internship or volunteer placement, so it's very flexible.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

I've had a lot of experience traveling so I wasn't nervous but mostly just excited! The one thing that worried me was doing the program alone and not knowing anyone. However, R2A gives you a group of friends and a huge support system if you ever need help with anything. Through this program, I met some amazing friends!

How did you learn to navigate the city?

Trial and error! One of the biggest challenges for me was figuring out the bus and subway system. Often times I would get on a bus and it would be going the completely wrong direction!

I had to push myself out of my comfort zone and ask a stranger or the driver where the bus was going. This is one of the best ways to learn Spanish because you have to force yourself to speak a language you may not be comfortable with. The best way to do this is by asking locals and just trying out many different forms of transportation!

What is your favorite travel memory?

My best memories of a trip are from my cycling adventure through South America in 2016. I traveled on my own for 4 months around Peru and Ecuador, camping on the beach, meeting many local people and enjoying the best fish dishes in the zone. It was an exciting adventure and I learned to live only with the essentials.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Since working on Road2Argentina, I was able to combine many things I love: meeting people from other countries and different cultures, being able to show them the fabulous city of Buenos Aires and striving day by day to create the best possible experience, finding new places, discovering fantastic companies and NGOs. And enjoying what I do.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

The best story I heard without a doubt was that of one (already a great friend) of England, who fell in love with Buenos Aires and Argentina itself, who decided to return in a year, and live here for a while and probably also join the Road team! I believe that on each trip, the real magic happens when we are willing to leave the comfort zone and get into the unknown.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would choose the Internship Program without thinking twice. A great way to get into the culture of a big city and country is to be able to share things day by day with local people, in different contexts: work, culture, outings. This program allows all that and much more. In a few days, you will find yourself speaking in Spanish with coworkers, friendly people in a bar and even with your own host. That combination is what I think will allow you to take a rich and complete picture of what is Buenos Aires and Argentina.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

I am completely sure that this company is unique to the people who are part of it, and how much each of us loves what he does on Road. Through the experience of having lived 10 years in the city, what makes us unique is to be able to know and show all those places, attractions, expressions, situations that are distant from someone who has not spent time here. Our focus is to be able to offer a 100% personalized experience and try to make the weeks here the best in those people's lives.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I think the most important factor is to love what one does and be constant. I believe that only by being truly happy in what one does every day, and striving with a passion to give everything, can a totally unique experience be offered, can one stay in the best memories of a person for life. Love + Constancy + Pasion is my favorite formula.
