Connect-123’s volunteer program in Buenos Aires gives you the flexibility to independently arrange housing for yourself in the city, or to share your preferences with us and then let us do the legwork! We can help with arranging accommodation in locations convenient to your volunteer host organization, or we can prioritize arranging for you to live with other Connect-123 international volunteers. Some of our Buenos Aires volunteers choose instead the homestay option, which allows for full cultural immersion and may be best suited to those wishing to improve their Spanish.
