I wanted to pre warn new volunteers in plenty of time that the big summer holidays start here around the 16th of December and last till the beginning of March. Most children in Buenos Aires will leave the city for some of this time to avoid the heat and get some fresh air. Even the kids from the villas who come to Conviven for english classes will get a chance to go to summer camps which are organized by the state. They tend to go away to camp in January so this is why there will be no volunteering opportunities avaliable in this month. If you are planning a trip here and wish to volunteer please keep this in mind.
