THE PROJECT

This is a social organization that edits a magazine written by professional journalists and sold on the streets by homeless and unemployed people who gain an income from what they sell. The program promotes the self-management and personal development of people who are in need of opportunities, offering them the chance to generate their own income. Objectives: human rights and community development. At the same time, the project creates a circle of movement between the organization, the vendors and the readers, putting the vendor in the centre of both the social and cultural scene as well as economic participation. A social center in Buenos Aires has been created where an integral program of creative workshops is implemented. These include alternative therapies, cultural activities and derivations of existing services which all have the aim of helping the vendors to complete the integration process.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

Volunteers work in shifts between 9:30am and 6pm and assist in the daily operations of the magazine, supervised by a Volunteer coordinator. They mainly work at the buffet, which is the area that provides most contact with the vendors.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

This volunteer project in Buenos Aires is looking for volunteers to commit to a minimum of 4 weeks to this project who possess a high beginner level of Spanish (you can book a Spanish course prior to starting your project).
