We want to create a network between volunteers and local organizations where we can all actively participate as community builders and from which we can all learn and grow in different ways.
We aim to connect and empower local organizations in order to take a unified approach to community development.
We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder supports a community and the individuals who are part of it, discovering what is strong about them and helping to work towards improvement, development and growth. We define ourselves as community builders because we work alongside local organizations as they develop and grow. Volunteers, coordinators and organizations connect and unite to achieve a common goal in local development.

I volunteered with Voluntario Global a few years ago and I can honesty say it was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. In fact, I've continued to work with the organization from my home country because I believe in the program and their model so much.
From the first email I had sent to the day of my departure, the staff was warm and helpful. I can tell that they wanted the program to be not only impactful for the children and community members they were working with, but also for the international volunteers.
On a typical day, I would take the train to the after-school center I was volunteering at and I would assist with English lessons to a group of very sweet and eager-to learn students. I would then return to the city and maybe go out with some other volunteers who were staying in the volunteer house (which is a sort of private hostel). The staff members did a great job matching me with a community program that matched my interests and my experience. Another thing I really liked about the program was that it was very affordable and the donation went directly to maintaining the organization.
Overall, the experience felt very warm and personal, maybe because we were able to work closely with the staff members, who helped us feel connected to the community and to each other.

Being with Voluntario Global is a great experience for me. I get to make a difference while I at the same time meet a bunch of amazing new people and learn a lot of Spanish. It is a great way to experience the culture and city of Buenos Aires. I simply just love it.
