On volunteers’ special request and with notice given in advance, CW can arrange for private accommodation and individual bedrooms in family homes located in the fanciest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires city (Recoleta, Palermo, Belgrano, etc).

A volunteer’s typical week in Buenos Aires:Our volunteers working schedules vary according to the project they choose, but if you have any special requests please let us know in advance and we’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule in accordance to your needs.
A typical weekday begins with breakfast at 8:00 AM and then a commuting of half to one hour busride to your project placement. Work stats at about 9:00 AM and depending on the daily requirements of each project, the working day finishes between 3:00 and 5:00 PM.
There are some breaks during the day and after work volunteers are free to enjoy themselves together and with their new local friends, go downtown, do some sightseeing, shopping and taking advantage of the immense offer of entertainment available all year round in “the city that never sleeps!”
