Internships in Argentina




Argentina - home of the tango, gauchos (Argentine cowboys), incredible natural beauty, and Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America - is a great place to volunteer or intern. There are a number of programs available here. You may also wish to combine your work with Spanish classes.


Buenos Aires is truly one of the world's great capitals. With over 9,000,000 residents, this is no sleepy town. In fact sleep is optional in this 24 hour metropolis. With its European-style boulevards, cultural venues, fine restaurants and clubs, you may never want to sleep.


The people of Buenos Aires, called porteños, are primarily of Spanish and Italian descent. They are known for their style and flair. They are as proud and as passionate as the tango, the dance they invented and continue even today.


Of course, Buenos Aires can also be your doorway to the rest of Argentina. When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, you can be skiing in the Andes. Or maybe you'd like to discover the wine country, or the Pampas, the vast agricultural and ranching plains of Argentina, or the wilds of Tierra del Fuego and the rest of Patagonia. There are few destinations that can match what awaits you in Argentina.


ELI works with a wide variety of organizations based in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires to create internships designed to give valuable international work experience, improve Spanish proficiency, and firsthand experience with the complexities of doing business in Argentina. All interns must have at least an intermediate level of Spanish proficiency and feel comfortable working in an all-Spanish speaking environment.

Politics and Human Rights

Work with an NGO devoted to promoting democratic processes and citizen participation. After the collapse of the Argentine dictatorship in 1982, a group of concerned Argentine citizens formed organizations to ensure their future democratic rights. This organization now has 29 branches throughout Argentina and collaborates with governmental, international, and non-governmental organizations to educate Argentine students and encourage civic engagement. Interns with this program will work on program development and project coordination.

Another possibility is working with an international NGO focused on promoting and protecting human rights throughout the world. The Argentine chapter has been pivotal in drawing attention to human rights violations under the most recent military dictatorships and the present-day high death rate due to illegal abortion. Interns will work on various campaigns assisting in the areas of communication and event planning.
