WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Many of the social organisations that we collaborate with work together to bring a range of social injustices into the public domain through a variety of media, including print, audio, visual and through events such as protests. 

These organisations do not have unlimited finances or technical resources, but what they do have above all is a great deal of creativity that allows them to express themselves in the most striking ways.

Throughout this project you will be working closely with one such NGO helping them to research, create, edit, produce and broadcast a range of causes through various media streams depending upon the focus of the organisation at the time of your placement.

Bringing in your own technical skills, some of the tasks you may be involved with include helping with the planning and organising of events as well as the communication of the organisations social initiatives and actions such as fighting for human rights and highlighting injustice. You will be given the opportunity to collaborate with the team in order to enchance the organisations social media presence and public appearance.  You may collaborate on the production of videos, presentations and other dissemination tools, attend and translate English newspaper articles into Spanish and vice versa.

Your tasks will depend on your own skills and interests as well as what is needed at the time of your internship. You will be encouraged to bring your own creativity, perspective and skills to the articles you contribute to, whilst also constantly learning from your colleagues and fellow proffessionals. If you are interested in a particular area do let us know and we will endeavour to get you involved during your internship. Wherever your goals lie, whether purely in journalism or even editing, production or advertising, this assignment has something for you. All this, whilst you discover more about this incredible city and its people through your work and research on the project.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?

Upon arrival into Buenos Aires International Airport you will be greeted by a friendly in-country representative, who will then escort you to your home in Buenos Aires, where you will live for the duration of your stay. 

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying in a shared volunteer/student house with a fully equipped kitchen and living room. Bed linen is provided.

WHAT WILL I BE EATING?

You will be responsible for all of your own meals, and your accommodation will have facilities enabling you to do this, or you can take the opportunity to sample some of the city's abundant cafes and restaurants.

Argentina is well known for its good food, and in particular the fantastic local produce. You may wish to venture out into the city and try some of the food offered by local restaurants and market stalls. If you are a meat eater you might like to try a steak, which are world renowned! Buenos Aires certainly has a lot to offer the eager explorer, and the bustling street stalls and colourful markets invite you to immerse yourself in this wonderfully diverse culture.

Look out for some delicious meat dishes; meat is the national staple - such as beef cooked 'asado style', or 'parillo', which is grilled sausage served with salad. Empanadas are also a national favourite; these half-moon shaped pastries can be filled with a range of ingredients such as meat and vegetables. If you have a sweet tooth, then Dulce de Leche will be right up your street! Specific diets and vegetarians can be accommodated.

What a place to soak up the culture!  | 1 Jun 2017

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED

Flights

Flights are not included in our project costs. However, Frontier have partnered with an experienced and professional team of travel experts to help our volunteers find the best flight deals for their trips with Frontier. This travel specialist operates in the tailor-made, long haul multi-stop travel market, arranging complex airfares and transfers for independent travellers. They provide expertise, security and a vast product range along with a Travel Butler service which is a single point of contact and support whilst you are overseas.

We recommend that you obtain a quote using the following contact details rather than book online, as our partner will offer you the most competitive fares. To receive your quote or to seek any advice for your flights, please contact Frontier’s dedicated team of travel experts on 0800 082 9994 (or +44 800 082 9994 outside the UK) or email frontier@flightcentre.co.uk .

Visas

For fast, efficient and up-to-date visa advice please contact our recommended visa consultancy partner:

Depending on your destination country and your country of origin, you might require a visa. Please see the appropriate country consular website for details or contact our affiliate visa consultancy service. Please note that your visa will usually start on the date that you enter the destination country regardless of when it was issued. Please check with the relevant embassy or high commission. If you are purchasing your visa or paying entry/exit fees in-country you will probably need to pay in US Dollars. If you have any questions please consult the relevant embassy or high commission. Please check the visa information regularly, as changes often happen without warning.

Insurance

You'll need to buy appropriate travel insurance covering your participation on the project. You won't be able to go without the right travel insurance so double check to avoid disappointment. Please make sure that you're covered for the whole duration of your trip – from the day you leave the UK to the day you return. It's also best to get your travel insurance at the same time as paying the deposit for your project. Depending on your policy, this will cover you for any unexpected cancellations.

Your insurance should include the following:

  • Medical cover, including medical emergencies and medical evacuations (up to USD$3,000,000 / GBP£2,000,000);
  • Personal liability (up to USD$1,500,000 / GBP£1,000,000);
  • Cancellation and curtailment of your trip (up to the value of your project contribution).

If you are going to be scuba diving you should get coverage for scuba diving up to 30m, including hyperbaric therapy treatment (unlimited). You should consider obtaining insurance to cover you for any additional activities which you plan to do during, before, or after your Frontier project. We recommend that you obtain cover for your baggage and personal effects.


LEGAL STATEMENT
Frontier Partner Projects and Frontier group projects are run in partnership with in-country NGOs, small community based organisations, local research institutes, academic organisations and conservation agencies. Project descriptions and information are supplied directly by our partners or field staff and are accurate at time of publishing.

We aim to keep information up to date and accurate, however, the nature of our projects and in particular the fact that they are constantly evolving and developing in response to changing needs means that project activities, travel schedules, tour itineraries and daily timetables can change overnight and without notice.

To apply for this project, or to register your interest, just click on the orange "Apply Now!" button at the top of the menu. Fill out and submit a short application form and then one of our advisers will give you a call back to answer any questions and to progress your application if you wish to continue.

There is no obligation when making an application, and you do not need to pay anything at this point.
