Heath: I contributed to creating social change

Our volunteer Heath from The United States has said this about Conviven:
Teaching English at Centro Conviven was truly one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. The staffs of both Help Argentina and Centro Conviven are second to none and, as a result, the volunteers are rewarded by being able to witness the center strengthen and grow during their time in Mataderos.

In addition, they give the volunteers genuine responsibility and the freedom to implement their own suggestions, which allows them, the volunteers, to effectively respond to the needs of the children on a daily basis. Lastly, working at the center is a great way to practice Spanish and get a glimpse of a different side of Buenos Aires. Overall, I had an unforgettable experience volunteering at Centro Conviven and honestly feel that I, personally, contributed to creating significant social change in Buenos Aires while developing lasting relationships.
