TINGUA is an organization that promotes positive and sustainable social impact throughout the world, challenging frontiers and unlocking the potential of cultural diversity through international volunteering and professional training programs.
TINGUA’s intercultural experiences encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and move towards a learning zone, broaden your vision of the world, learn a new language, experience new emotions, enrich your perspective, change habits, get to know other cultures, challenge your own limits, open your mind, and unlock your potential.
Customized programs: our programs are tailored to the expectations and abilities of each individual participant.
Close monitoring: our team members have lived in many different countries, speak several languages, and have over ten years of experience training volunteers from different cultures. This wealth of experience allows them to understand, advise, and provide answers to every individual’s concerns.
Local Awareness: TINGUA has established deeply-rooted, long-term bonds with reputable organizations committed to clear social goals. Volunteers live and work shoulder to shoulder with community members, exploring new cultures and helping them to build a better future.
Comprehensive Services: In order to provide a full intercultural experience to our students, our programs cover all the aspects of experiential programs: accommodations (we own two hostels in Córdoba City), transfer service, cultural activities, and Spanish lessons while volunteering.
Right in the southern end of the American continent, there stands Argentina. A country featuring forest landscapes, vast mountains, gelid glaciers, the Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire), and the End of the World, all mixed with profound passions such as tango, soccer &politics.
The “heart of the country” is the province of Córdoba, located in the very geographic center of Argentina, from where you can get to the various tourist destinations within a matter of hours.
Its capital, Buenos Aires, is considered to be the most European-like city in Latin America. A must-visit within the provinces are Mendoza’s Malbec vineyards, Jujuy’s Quebrada de Humahuaca (Humahuaca Ravine), Córdoba’s Jesuit constructions, San Juan’s Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), the Cataratas de Iguazú (Iguazú Falls), and a long etcetera of sites awaiting for you to enjoy.
Córdoba is the second largest city in the country. Its Jesuit heritage and its strong Spanish vividness result in a fascinating blend of past and modernity. Córdoba is also a university city, home to several colleges and universities which endow it with a youthful and forward-looking environment on many different aspects. This is the reason why people from Córdoba are kind, friendly, and open-minded, and easily integrate their visitors and students, a really valuable distinctive feature.
Classified as a developing country, throughout the last couple of decades Argentina has gone through a series of cyclic economic crises that have devastated its broad middle class, pushing a high percentage of the population to the verge of poverty and taking a heavy toll on social rights. In this context, each volunteer from Volunteers Argentina has the opportunity to make their small —yet huge— contribution to the local community and, thus, have an impact on Argentina’s sustainable development.
