Ready to devote your summer to justice, freedom, truth, and dignity? Welcome to our program in Buenos Aires, Argentina — your next second home. With a rich history that offers a living classroom for exploring human liberties such as freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of the press, this program is designed to help combine the past and present in order to empower you and your future.
The program is based in Buenos Aires and anchored by a welcoming host family. This vibrant capital city expresses itself through a fast-paced energy that understands the value of also taking it easy. AFS is recruiting students from around the world to participate in this program, which includes intensive Spanish language classes, academic workshops, fun cultural activities, and day trips beyond the city. Specifically, the common theme of the program examines Human Rights in all expressions, including an emphasis on Gender Studies and the LBGTQ+ community in Latin America.
By the end of your three-week immersion, you’ll return home with a broadened worldview, improved Spanish, and an understanding of Argentina’s history and progress toward Human Rights — and in all likelihood, a new appreciation for mate, an omnipresent Argentine tea.
