  2. 2. + Volunteer Work n  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. Many people moved by the pleasure of traveling, meeting new people, and seeing new places, joined our projects while making a positive impact in the community. n  Along these years of positive experience, we have found many local non-profit and charity organizations offering educational, environmental, social and scientific projects.  Among these, we have selected a variety of interesting possible volunteer placements, meaningful for the local community. We believe volunteers can be part of the solution. INTRODUCTION Spanish in Bariloche
