Interested in Human Rights? Considering spending Fall 2023 in Latin America? This is THE perfect opportunity for you! Come join us and learn more about our W&M Program in La Plata with our amazing program alums—Wednesday, February 15, 5:00pm, Washington Hall 315. 

Our W&M program in La Plata, Argentina, offers an amazing opportunity to take classes at an NGO that focuses on issues of human rights, the Comisión Provincial por la Memoria, and at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Live with Argentine host families while you explore the consequences of the policies and practices of the last Argentine dictatorship. Above all, take advantage of the unique service-learning internships designed by the Comisión exclusively for W&M students, such as:  

  • supporting the archival and preservation work of the Centro de Documentación of the Comisión;  
  • helping adolescents explore issues of memory, human rights, and state-sponsored violence via the Jóvenes y Memoria program;  
  • educating the general public by supporting exhibits and activities at the Museo de Arte y Memoria;  
  • assisting and doing translation work for the Comité contra la tortura.
