Of course, you could also do a voluntary service at home – but you prefer to gain working experience overseas and explore South America? Just book your flight, start your voluntary work in Argentina and thereafter travel to fascinating countries like Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil or Colombia – There is a lot to discover! Traveling through Latin America will take you to incredible places and gives you the chance to experience its unique culture and lifestyle. Come to South America and create unforgettable memories!
You can take part in our Volunteer Program without any prior knowledge or working experience (similar to the internships in our Gap Year Program). You just need to be open-minded and interested in learning about how people in South America provide decisive aid with a lot of creativity and enthusiasm – overcoming the obstacles that present the limited available resources.
The organization will introduce you to each activity and in some cases, you will furthermore have the possibility to create a new activity or mini project. This is how you will gain many new skills during your voluntary work abroad – and learn a lot about yourself!
You do not only want to travel but gain work experience abroad. Moreover, you prefer a volunteer work over an internship because you want to support people on site by helping disadvantaged children, fostering environmental conservation or teaching valuable skills to students in need. If you are committed to the goals of the respective organization and really want to make a change, our Volunteer Program is the right choice for you!
For work & travel in Australia or teaching children in India, it is obviously enough to speak English. In South America on the contrary, Spanish is necessary in order to communicate with people from the local and indigenous communities. This holds true not only for Argentina but also for countries like Mexico, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Chile, Uruguay, and Colombia. If you don´t have any or only basic Spanish skills so far, you can simply join one of our Intensive Courses on site.

With NICE you can get involved socially or do an internship for job orientation from the age of 17 on. If you are a student, you can take an inspiring break with a volunteer project abroad and professionals have the opportunity to do a so-called sabbatical in South America with NICE. Hence, our Volunteer Program is open to all generations – and in addition, it can be easily combined with a travel through Latin America.
You are not interested in a touristic vacation but rather want to contribute to a real change? Great! Our local organizations in Argentina are looking for volunteers that want to participate in a project for at least 4 weeks. However, the longer you stay, the more you will learn about South America and the cultural particularities of Argentina in comparison to countries such as Brazil, Ecuador or Peru. Furthermore, you will turn into a real member of the team and gain deeper insights into the workflow, the partners involved, etc. For sure, you will see the first results of your effort in no time – there is nothing more rewarding!
