Daycare Center and Kindergarten Project (Cordoba)

Volunteer in Daycare Center and Kindergarten Project in Cordoba, Argentina

The city of Cordoba is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty. While the city has diverse population and is growing economically, there are still many people living in poverty. New Hope is working with childcare centers to offer disadvantaged children educational opportunities that would not be otherwise available. In the project, our volunteers will be implementing educational programs that are fun and interactive in an informal environment, and help the center look after the children as well. They can also practice Spanish during the project and travel to see the attractions Argentina has to offer.

What difference is this project making?

By giving love, care, attention, and education to the children, our volunteers will ensure the project can succeed in developing the full potential of the children in a safe, creative, and caring environment. Volunteers will help the children develop their motor skills and their English and Spanish language ability. They will also be motivated to work towards a better future.

Highlights of the program

Volunteers will help organize outdoor and indoor games, arts and crafts, storytelling, music, and drama lessons. They can also provide daily care to children, assist medical staff, organize recreational activities, and assist families. Other work includes helping the staff in the kitchen, and assisting local staff to develop stimulating new ideas to interest young children in learning. Any encouragement you can offer goes a long way towards building a child's self-esteem and confidence.

Volunteers must be at least 18 and they must have health insurance as well as accident and liability. They must also respect the rules and regulations of the center, be resourceful, and must not hesitate to become involved in different activities. If they do not have a basic knowledge of Spanish, they can join our Spanish classes which will help make their program more effective. The community program is an initiative of local municipality and works with deprived communities.

Project location

With 1.4 million visitors, Cordoba is Argentina's second city. The city is nestled in a valley and is surrounded by high mountains.
