My experience in Argentina was full of firsts: the first time I traveled outside of the US, the first time I was immersed in a culture that did not speak my native language, the first time I ever took a cab...and Road2Argentina made these firsts a little less scary. From start to finish, they are there to address any concerns and answer any questions you have (naturally I had several). But most of all, they make you feel comfortable in a new, at times intimidating, environment. They perfectly balance a focus on building a community amongst other interns and volunteers through frequent events and excursions, which also provide opportunities to learn about and immerse oneself in Argentine culture, while simultaneously allowing you space to establish your own independence and unique experience abroad through your internship/volunteer placement and housing. I wish I could adequately put into words how much this experience has meant to me with regards to gaining traveling experience, the growth of my Spanish-speaking abilities, and above all, my independence and confidence in myself, and none of that would have been gained if it weren't for Road. Needless to say, Argentina is a beautiful country full of vibrant, passionate people, and if you have any inkling of interest in traveling, interning or volunteering there, contact Road2Argentina.
