Position description

The Human Rights project in Argentina is based in Córdoba and offers volunteers the opportunity to get involved at a grass roots level, raising awareness of human rights in a variety of marginalised communities or at risk groups.

The work is suitable for volunteers with a general interest in human rights, law students seeking an internship placement in human rights and graduates or legal professionals seeking practical experience. The experience will serve to boost any CV and you will be participating in worthwhile campaigns to advance change.

The Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in Argentina recognises the necessity for re-building peaceful societies and communities respectful of human rights values, justice and human dignity; and the need to promote and protect the human rights of all.

Volunteering on a Human Rights Project in Argentina

The Projects Abroad Human Rights Office is a professional organisation with a demanding programme and as such must be taken seriously. The project requires volunteers with a strong interest in affecting change for the better while keeping in mind the long-term aims.

As a Human Rights volunteer you will be allocated to a placement which meets your skills, interests and preferences. Volunteers usually work with people or communities needing a wide range of assistance, and in some cases you may be working with abused and vulnerable individuals. 

Volunteers may also spend a few hours per week working alongside our in-house lawyer giving legal advice to people suffering from issues like domestic violence and housing disputes.

Day-to-day tasks may involve:

  • Interviewing victims/perpetrators of human rights abuses.
  • Academic research and reporting.
  • Out-of-office fieldwork, including outreach projects with abused women and children's shelters, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and disadvantaged communities.
  • Presentations to local communities.
  • Attending and planning for human rights related conferences, workshops and public debates.
