Hi everyone!
I'll be flying to Buenos Aires in a month and am considering volunteering with Voluntario Global. I've snooped around online as much as I can but has any one here ever volunteered with them? They ask for an online deposit and it makes me rather uneasy, as I've heard many horror stories about fake NGO scams etc. I'm probably paranoid but still, speaking to someone who has already volunteered with them would be great!
Take care :)

Hey I volunteered abroad in India, but before that, I did quite a bit of research on volunteer abroad placement companies. With that said, I don't ever remembering see Voluntario Global as one of the major placement agencies (doesn't mean they are not legit). Have you tried searching for reviews on them?

By the way, how much are they charging? Anything more than $150 a week and it is a rip off.

I've gotten some feedback and apparently they are legit, they charge $160 a week including accomodation. Still mulling it over, thanks for your reply!

Ok great. $160 is not too bad... as long as you're not paying $1000+ per week like some places charge! Have they given you details on where you will be staying and what you will be doing? Do they have a facebook page where you can link up with past/current/future volunteers?
