When should I apply?
It is best if we receive your application at least 3 weeks before you plan on starting a program. We will accept applications earlier or later, of course. Please inquire if you need to set up a program in less time.
When can I go?
The programs are ongoing, so you can decide when you would like to go.
What is the application Process?
We set up all placements on a completely individual basis depending on the information in your application and the needs of the organizations at the time you will be in the program. For an application to be considered complete, we need to receive your completed application form, CV/Resume and cover letter. Once we have your complete application, we send the information to our in-country coordinator and we will send you a confirmation of your placement and an invoice for the program fee within 3-4 business days. We need to receive the program fee 14 days (2 weeks) before you depart in order to make sure everything is ready for your arrival.
How long does the program last?
This depends on the whether you are volunteering or participating as an intern. Generally, programs can last any length of time from as little as one day up to six months.
Where do I stay?
Participants stay either with a local host family or in volunteer housing cottages.
What are the age requirements?
All participants must be at least 18 years old at the time of participation. We work with people of all ages over 18.
Can I be placed with my travel buddy?
Yes, we often work with people traveling together so this is not a problem. Married couples can be accommodated in their own private cottage.
Will I need a visa?
Argentina requires that all visitors have a visa. Depending on your length of stay, you may be required to renew your visa during your stay. Participants are responsible for obtaining their own visa – please visit this Link for more details.
What immunizations do I need?
You will need to make an appointment with a doctor specializing in travel medicine - we recommend following the guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control: www.cdc.gov/travel/
Do I need travel insurance?
Yes. First, if you already are insured at home, you should check with your carrier to see what kind of coverage, if any, you will have while abroad. One for One does not supply insurance for the simple reason that we believe that you should be able to decide on the nature of your coverage. Some insurance, particularly for students, is very inexpensive. We recommend:
STA Travel International Travel Insurance.
You can call STA at 877-777-8717.
Other sources for affordable insurance:
Beta Insurance - Students and Faculty CMI – Students CMI - Non-Students CISI - Students Patriot Insurance - Available to all Multi-National Underwriters - Available to all.
Can you tell me exactly what I will be doing?
Once we finalize your application, we will send you a job description and information about the population you will be working with. Remember that all placements are set up within the confines of the village in Virrey Del Pino, Argentina. Please remember that international internships and volunteering requires flexibility! The needs of our organization varies depending on the time of year you will be staying with us but we will do our best to inform you of your tasks, but these may change once you are in country.
Do you offer scholarships or other financial aid?
Unfortunately, we do not have the funding to offer grants or scholarships for the programs, but we really work to keep our prices as low as possible for everyone. If you are receiving a grant or scholarship from another organization and wish to apply it toward a One for One Foundation program, we will be happy to work with you.
How much does it cost?
The programs have a one-time program fee based on how long you will stay. This fee covers our costs associated with setting up the program, accommodation, meals, and in-country administrative expenses.
Is One for One Foundation a nonprofit?
Yes, One for One Foundation is a 501(c)(3). The program fees are tax deductible for U.S. and Argentine taxpayers. You will need to check with your accountant or tax preparer for details on how to do this.
Do I need to be a US citizen to participate?
No. We accept participants from all over the world.
