Based at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in the city of Cordoba, volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in a number of different tasks, including interviewing victims of human rights abuse, academic research and reporting, presentations to local communities, and working with local NGOs.

The work focus on three main areas: education and awareness, human rights monitoring, and abuse resolution.

Projects Abroad Human Rights Internship in Argentina Reviews

I learned so many things

I went to Argentina for two weeks to improve my Spanish and gain work experience in human rights. I stayed in an Argentinian family with three other students from the United States and the UK. In those two weeks, I took five Spanish lessons per week, went to an elementary school to play with the students using human rights terms, heard a man who lost his sister in the dictatorship in recent history, feed poor people on the street, met a lawyer to discuss the human rights issues in Argentina, and went to the city side to looking the protest against the prohibition of abortion. I learned many things in this project and hope that more students would experience something through Projects Abroad.
