RCDP Argentina Program starts every 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month.
Every year hundreds of volunteers arrive in Argentina to volunteer from UK and USA based organizations and end up paying up to $2500 to volunteer for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, only a small portion of that money actually goes to host projects and host families. The local host projects (orphanages, school, and local NGOs) in Argentina are resource poor and underfunded and need external support to run their programs. In our program, you will pay your fee directly to host families and projects upon arrival in Argentina.When you join our Argentina volunteer program, we will make sure that all of your money goes to the projects and host families. Part of your fees also helps us cover our expenses. The program fee is divided as registration fee ($259) and weekly fee (for room, food, coordination, and project donation).

In Argentina, weekly fee is divided between room/3 local foods a day (50%) and project donation/support of local project staffs (50%). This allocation may be different depending on locations, project types etc. However, our coordinator will explain these issues before you pay the fee. Please find below the breakdown of cost in a weekly basis.

Volunteers in Cordoba will either stay with a host family or in a hostel. Both of these settings will be both safe and secure. Our host families are well-screened and respectful people. They take great delight with the experience of hosting volunteers. Volunteers will be staying in one of Cordoba's most charming neighborhoods and close to downtown. The area is filled with colonial architecture and has been a home for many influential writers and musicians. The facilities will include shared bathroom facilities with running water and a "western style" toilet.
Two meals per day will be prepared for you (breakfast and lunch) and are mostly common dishes that are typical of Argentina. If you are placed in a hostel, meals will not be included and you will be responsible for your own meals. Weekly costs of food will are not included in the program fee and volunteers can expect to pay about $50 per week on food.
Staying with a host family or in a hostel will put you in contact with some caring and interesting people that will offer you some great memories for your trip abroad. Both have different aspects to offer, but will be provide for a delightful time during your visit to Argentina.
Volunteers will also have access to the country coordinator who will provide continual support and direction throughout their volunteer abroad experience. The country coordinator typically visits volunteers about every 2-weeks, but will also be available via phone and email. Volunteers can contact the coordinator at any time.
