Internships in Argentina

 

Argentina - home of the tango, gauchos (Argentine cowboys), incredible natural beauty, and Buenos Aires, the Paris of South America - is a great place to volunteer or intern. There are a number of programs available here. You may also wish to combine your work with Spanish classes.

 

Buenos Aires is truly one of the world's great capitals. With over 9,000,000 residents, this is no sleepy town. In fact sleep is optional in this 24 hour metropolis. With its European-style boulevards, cultural venues, fine restaurants and clubs, you may never want to sleep.

 

The people of Buenos Aires, called porteños, are primarily of Spanish and Italian descent. They are known for their style and flair. They are as proud and as passionate as the tango, the dance they invented and continue even today.

 

Of course, Buenos Aires can also be your doorway to the rest of Argentina. When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, you can be skiing in the Andes. Or maybe you'd like to discover the wine country, or the Pampas, the vast agricultural and ranching plains of Argentina, or the wilds of Tierra del Fuego and the rest of Patagonia. There are few destinations that can match what awaits you in Argentina.

 

ELI works with a wide variety of organizations based in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires to create internships designed to give valuable international work experience, improve Spanish proficiency, and firsthand experience with the complexities of doing business in Argentina. All interns must have at least an intermediate level of Spanish proficiency and feel comfortable working in an all-Spanish speaking environment.

Journalism

Interns interested in pursuing a career in journalism can gain experience at one of several publications in Buenos Aires. Possibilities include working at a monthly magazine focusing on urban pop culture in Buenos Aires, daily newspapers, or other publications. Interns assist with researching and drafting stories and could possibly get involved in the editorial process. It is important for participants in this program to be motivated, creative self starters.
