stepsam has indicated that this thread is about Argentina

After a week in Buenos Aires (Jan 20-27), I would like to volunteer somewhere in South America in exchange for room and board. Do you know of any opportunities? I'd be willing to pay a small daily fee.

I seem to remember that there are some opportunities in social projects in the Arg-Bol border area; same for southern Paraguay. You might wanna try this link (google comes up with several others, too):

good luck,

There is a directory of Free and low-cost volunteer OPS
in South America here:

In BA there is LIFEargentina (details on the above site),
They don't charge but you'll have to organise your own accommodation.

Some programs listed on the site do provide food & board
for volunteers who can commit to a long-term stint.
