Participate in a unique community service program in Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America. This program allows participants to learn about the social and economic challenges facing this capital city through service and volunteerism. In order to more fully immerse in the experience participants take Spanish classes at a local language school. This enhances success at the community service placement and also allows participants to get a deep understanding of Argentina, its history, and its people.
