Argentina Exchange, or “AE” is an organisation which specializes in consulting and helping visiting young foreigners that come to Buenos Aires (or Argentina in general).
It was created at the beginning of 2008 with the objective of offering a better life experience to university exchange students coming to Buenos Aires by resolving the initial difficulties that they faced when trying to get to know Argentine life and culture.
Currently, the services that AE provide are focused entirely on students or young people who are interested in following academic, professional and cultural paths in Buenos Aires and who want to get involved in what life has to offer out here in Argentina.
Thanks to the experience of the last 5 years of working with, welcoming and helping more than 3,000 young people start a life in Buenos Aires we are confident that the variety of options we can offer the students are tried and tested. Each and every one has been polished by all the experiences that we have encountered over the last 5 years.
We at Argentina Exchange have therefore accumulated a large network of contacts, knowledge and information about the various problems that a young person might face when making the move to a big city (specifically, of course, Buenos Aires.) We pride ourselves in being able to present solutions to these problems in order to be able to guarantee the best experience possible.
Primary focus of our consultants at AE are:
1) Deciding where to go and how to prepare yourself complete with pre-departure information.
2) Help in the search for accommodation, internships, potential areas of study and voluntary work.
3) Welcome and introduction to life in Buenos Aires.
4) Social and cultural integration: creation of a network of contacts and friendships.
Agreements and contracts.
Argentina exchange is a company that is constantly open to establishing links with other organisations and widening our sphere of contacts and influence.
We are thus always aiming to find mutually beneficial agreements with companies and NGOs to promote growth with the ultimate aim of bettering the services and solutions that we provide our foreign clients and local partners.
AE has many contacts within local private companies, NGOs and government organisations that help us to offer comprehensive solutions for anything our young clients might need.
In the same way there are many local and international institutions that trust in the abilities of Argentina Exchange to offer the best solutions possible, especially the ability to facilitate the experiences of and between clients and students.
We specialize in:
The Cost of Living/ Living costs.
We have a consultation with our young clients before they arrive so that we can equip them price estimates or budgets as to what their experience might cost them by basing it on their ideal lifestyle and personal preferences.
According to the young clients’ preferences and what they will doing in regards to work, we will provide them with a variety of options as to what type of accommodation to choose and in which area they should be looking.
Services included within the spectrum of accommodation are: help with the search for various accommodation options, the presentation of offers and prices for the accomodation and finally help with contacting the owners and the properties selected so that reservations can be made before arrival.
Internships within Companies.
Due to our wide ranging network of contacts and information, we are able to provide our local partners with our clients profiles and CVs even before the client has arrived so that we can rule out, from both sides, the options that they will have upon arrival. Interviews are thus organized between the two parties within the company’s workspace to assure both parties that each of their requirements have been met. Our client is therefore satisfied with the opportunities that the company offers and the company is satisfied with the profile of the young person.
Our relationship with various social organisations allows us to present various voluntary activities so that our clients find their own way to contribute to a better world.
We also include in our service an agenda of weekly activities which intend to help form bonds and friendships with Argentines and also other foreign students. People that our young client can share experiences, advice and worries and ultimately life-long friendships.
Personalizing your stay.
Each person will have their own specific objectives and interests for their stay. Through our various interviews together, we will be able to personalize our service by responding to personal doubts. Such doubts we will answer and solve thanks to our experience, thus providing in turn, the specific necessities of each and every client.
