Volunteer Programs

We have been organizing opportunities in Patagonia for many years as a complement for our Spanish programs. For our students, this has been a great way to improve conversational Spanish skills.
We have selected a variety of interesting possible volunteer placements in Patagonia, meaningful for the local community.
La Montaña also offers training for white-collar and professional careers in Bariloche.
