I went to Cordoba, Argentina this past summer on a “two-week special” trip with Projects Abroad. More specifically it was a Care and Spanish trip, which means we volunteered with youth there in the afternoons while taking classes in the mornings. It was an absolutely amazing opportunity. I got to meet so many new people (people from all over the world came together to volunteer there), do so many new and fun things, experience a new culture, and volunteer my time for those less fortunate than myself. It was truly eye opening, as international travel always is.
Projects Abroad did a great job balancing education, experience, social events, and immersion. They orchestrated great “socials” which were nights where all of the volunteers met up to enjoy time together doing something specific to Argentina or the city itself. For our trip we got to have an asado, which is a sort of Argentine barbeque, and we took tango-dancing classes. The classes were also really helpful. There were teachers for all different levels of Spanish (for full immersion or just beginning) and they really care about developing the students’ ability to speak Spanish and speak it well.
I would definitely recommend this organization and country to anyone looking to do something of this sort. I did look into other companies before deciding on Projects Abroad, and though I can’t vouch for those companies, I can assure you Projects Abroad is professional, enjoyable, educational, and an all-around great experience. I don’t even have any complaints about the trip or organization! The only reason I gave the 8 stars for support was because it was a tad difficult getting in contact with the Projects Abroad office in Argentina (not because of them, but simply because of time-zone differences).
If you’re interested in seeing a little bit about the trip in video form, I’ve posted a video I put together to highlight some great parts of this country and trip. Check it out if you’d like!
