We at Road2Argentina have partnered with many local non-profit organizations, schools, orphanages and community centers in Buenos Aires in order to provide assistance to those in need. At the same time, these partnerships give our volunteers the opportunity to get involved with meaningful projects to make a difference during their time here in the city. Volunteering is also a great way to learn and practice your Spanish, or Castellano as the locals call it.

In school, they are not able to easily understand the material and struggle to pass their exams.
