On the Human Rights Internship in Argentina for high school students, your work will focus on the following areas:
Research human rights abuses and run awareness campaigns in vulnerable communities
You will be based at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office, which is fully funded and run by us. Here, you’ll focus on conducting research, and planning workshops and campaigns.
You’ll take part in various workshops around local communities in Córdoba which will help raise awareness about human rights.
Take Spanish lessons
Daily Spanish classes will be provided during this trip, giving you the opportunity to either learn or brush up on a foreign language. Having more than one language under your belt will look great on your CV and will stand you in good stead when travelling in the future.
Lessons will be tailored to your individual level, whether you are a beginner or are studying Spanish at school. You will be taught by a qualified teacher who will go at your pace. You will also have plenty of opportunity to practice your conversation skills during sightseeing trips with our local staff, and with your host family.
Explore Córdoba with other interns
On the weekends, we’ll take you and the other interns on exciting sightseeing trips. This is a wonderful chance to travel without your parents in a safe environment and to make friends with people your age from all over the world. Projects Abroad staff will be with you constantly.
You will also be taken to various historic museums, and will have a chance to visit Che Guevara’s childhood home. A weekend trip to a small town in the mountains called La Cumbrecita will be arranged for you, as well as various evening activities during the week, such as a football tournament, Tango classes, and karaoke.
