Ameer's volunteering experience in Medellín 

One of my favorite parts of this experience was seeing how my relationships with the kids (and adults) of La Divisa grew over time. Week by week, I could see the students becoming more open, comfortable, and accepting of me.


I found it very rewarding to get to know some of the kids on a personal level, and once I was able to earn their trust and respect it became much easier and more enjoyable to teach. 

Why choose Intercambio?

  • We are an inclusive organization run by a team of volunteers whose members have all been on the projects.

  • We are in close contact with the social leaders of the projects and the target group for the voluntary work.

  • We offer affordable volunteering experiences.

  • In our association everybody has a say: both the volunteer, the supervisors, the hosting association and the teenagers.
