Title: volunteering as skate teacher in buenos aires
Post by: bob aus lewing on May 18, 2018, 01:19:59 PM
i'm currently making skate workshops as a volunteer in the la boca barrio in buenos aires. i'm doing it through a foundation that is taking care of kids and teenagers from poor families, giving them something to do instead of hanging out in the streets. i really like the organization and my work here, but i need to leave soon because i'm running out of money.
so if anybody is interested in coming to buenos aires to continue doing the workshop it would be greatly appechiated!
this is the webpage of the foundation: http://www.casasan.org (http://www.casasan.org)
my duties here are giving the actual courses 2 times a week, as well as organizing skate gear, building ramps and helping out in the center in general.
it's voluntary, so you won't get any money, and you should have at least some basic spanish skills in. it's actually a great opportunity to improve your language skills through this work.
besides that living and skating in buenos aires is awesome.
if you want to know more about the project write me a pm or comment in this thread. thanks!

no they don't offer accomodation, but possibly they could organize something good and cheap...
