Our number #1 priority is the safety of our volunteers. We pride ourselves on providing the safest, highest quality, and most professional programs to our volunteers. Our dedicated team works closely from start to finish with each volunteer (and parents/guardians) to ensure a successful, satisfactory, and safe volunteer opportunity in Argentina.

Below is a list of our safety and field support features that will demonstrate the level of support and safety each volunteer will receive while they complete their volunteer program in Argentina.

  • Country Coordinator and Field Staff: Global Crossroad has a very strong and dedicated team of country coordinators and local staff members. Each volunteer abroad in Argentina project is managed by a highly trained local team whose primary care, concern, and job is to meet the needs of each individual volunteer. There will be someone there to greet volunteers upon arrival at the airport, orient them to the country, conduct a language program (where applicable), manage room and board, introduce volunteers to their chosen program, and personally visit and or check-up via telephone every 7 to 12 days.
  • Airport Greeting: Once you clear customs, there will be someone (usually a local staff member, but at times a professional transfer company employee) waiting for you with a sign with your name on it. They will carry some form of valid identification, so that you feel 100% safe leaving with them.
  • Host Family Accommodations: The majority of the time, volunteers will reside with a host family. Global Crossroad has hand selected these host families to ensure that they are of the highest esteem and respectable citizens of their community. While Global Crossroad’s host families typically speak very little English, they are financially stable and have experience hosting international volunteers and travelers. This will prove to be a highly rewarding component of your volunteer abroad in Argentina program.
  • Comprehensive Insurance and Evacuation Plan: It is mandatory that all volunteers obtain a travel insurance policy when joining any of the volunteering opportunities in Argentina. Global Crossroad offers one of the most comprehensive insurance packages. Our insurance policy provides excellent protection in the event that a health-related issue occurs, an accident, or other unpredictable incidences. Please contact us to learn more about our insurance policy.
  • Placement with Other Volunteers: Global Crossroad is happy to place volunteers with other volunteers (depending on availability) if this is something that would make you feel safer.

Any international travel requires caution and awareness; a volunteering work in Argentina is no exception. We suggest that all volunteers consult their own government advisory office before making the decision to participate in any volunteering opportunities in Argentina. International travel presents risks, especially with the modern day threat of international terrorism.

Hello,

I am enjoying my experience here in Argentina. I really enjoy playing with the children everyday and teaching them a bit of English too! Carlos is the project leader here and he is absolutely fabulous helping me with everything that i need. I am so thankful he is really nice and made me feel very welcome. Mainly my experience is going to a school or aftercare program where I play with little children and help them with arts and crafts or snacks or play soccer. I think for future volunteers it would be helpful to let them know that resources are very slim in certain countries and if they have any extra equipment i.e. soccer balls, crayons, pencils, paper etc. to bring with them. Also I recommend here in Cordoba, Argentina to request to stay with a college student so that you can experience the true life of Argentina i.e. cooking, restaurants, and have someone to talk to and hang out.

Overall my experience so far has been absolutely wonderful and the people of Cordoba, Argentina are very kind, welcoming, and generous.

thanks

Kelly
