Argentina is beautiful, and I found it very easy to keep busy during my 12 weeks abroad. However, the road2argentina program could be better structured. We received very short notice for all activities, and the activities this year did not seem as exciting as they had been in past years with the different director. To improve, I would give one week notice for all activities and make sure to diversify what it is we are doing so we get a better experience through the program.
The internship experience was also a bit lackluster. I did not find it very engaging and would have preferred to work with a women’s organization, like I first requested when applying to the program. However, I was matched with a civil rights nonprofit which had far too many volunteers than it could accommodate, so I was frequently assigned busy work.
