The program

Our international volunteer program is called “Mensajeros del Mundo”(Messengers of the World) and includes accommodation in our volunteer house. One of the objectives of the program is to train young people to become social leaders. The Mensajeros de la Paz members coexist in a multicultural environment, work as a team to develop tasks or institutional projects, accompany the beneficiaries in their day to day and / or carry out workshops, always collaborating with the needs of our centers and homes.

Buenos Aires

We are in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The office is located under the house of the volunteers in the street Olegario Andrade 358, in Caballito, a quiet residential neighborhood in the heart of the city. It is 5 minutes walk from Av. Rivadavia, where more than 15 lines of buses and subway line “A” are located.

Activities

You can help in several ways:

  •  Keep the grandparents company and help in the kitchen;
  • Organizing or participating in the workshops for our grandmothers home, for our day center with street adolescents or for our adolescent girls and child girls home.
  • Help in the maintenance of the garden and the home garden of grandmothers.
  • Carry out institutional tasks together with the staff (fund development, marketing, event organization, social networks, activities for foreign volunteers).
  •  Offer school support for children on Saturdays.
  • Participate in the days of diffusion in the park on Saturdays promoting our campaigns.

All of our volunteers and interns are accompanied by the Program Coordinator and their Area Director.

It was an amazing experience, the people of the house are wonderful

CASA DEL MUNDO ( THE HOUSE OF THE WORLD)

The International Volunteer Program offers accommodation in our “Casa del Mundo” which has shared rooms, a large living room, a study room, 4 bathrooms, an equipped kitchen and a nice patio with barbecue. In addition we have WiFi and cleaning service of common spaces (although each volunteer is responsible for keeping the house clean).

At home you will meet with young people from all over the world who share the same values of community participation and global citizenship.

From Mensajeros de la Paz we believe that the experience of sharing a space like “Casa del Mundo”(House of the World) not only contributes to personal experiences but also enriches the volunteer.
