Description

Love Volunteers offers volunteering opportunities in a Community Development Project in Argentina. Since 2001, this project has been improving the quality of life of the children living in the most marginalized areas of Buenos Aires.

Although growth has brought with its expansion and in turn the opportunity to develop new channels for reaching and supporting at-risk children, the project has to this day the unique distinction of having no paid staff, which means that all projects and activities are carried out completely by volunteers.

At present, the program is centered around three key project areas: Ciudad Oculta (The Hidden City), Happy Birthday!, and Water for Peruti.

Qualifications

Love Volunteers welcomes all who wish to volunteer and give their time and energy to help the needy communities of Argentina. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. All applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
