TINGUA’s intercultural experiences encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and move towards a learning zone, broaden your vision of the world, learn a new language, experience new emotions, enrich your perspective, change habits, get to know other cultures, challenge your own limits, open your mind, and unlock your potential.


Quality Guaranteed: Since 2019, TINGUA has been certified as a B Corporation. It is part of a global movement of businesses that voluntarily meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, ultimately balancing profit and purpose. TINGUA has proven to meet the highest performance standards based on its Educational Model while using a survey to measure the social and environmental impact of each experience.

Customized programs: our programs are tailored to the expectations and abilities of each individual participant.

Close monitoring: our team members have lived in many different countries, speak several languages, and have over ten years of experience training volunteers from different cultures. This wealth of experience allows them to understand, advise, and provide answers to every individual’s concerns.

Local Awareness: TINGUA has established deeply-rooted, long-term bonds with reputable organizations committed to clear social goals. Volunteers live and work shoulder to shoulder with community members, exploring new cultures and helping them to build a better future.

Comprehensive Services:  In order to provide a full intercultural experience to our students, our programs cover all the aspects of experiential programs: accommodations (we own two hostels in Córdoba City), transfer service, cultural activities, and Spanish lessons while volunteering.

TINGUA is an organization that promotes positive and sustainable social impact throughout the world, challenging frontiers and unlocking the potential of cultural diversity through international volunteering and professional training programs.  




CLAUDIA CASTILLO was born in Mexico. In 2004 she came to Argentina answering the call of love. She has a Master´s degree in Social Policy. Through her work in the area of social development within the public and university fields, she came to realize that social local organizations were in great need of help. Given her interest in Interculturality she found in Tingua the perfect connection between these two passions. 

AGUSTINA GUTIERREZ has always been interested in learning about other cultures, thus she engaged in many intercultural experiences while still in high school. As she pursued her degree in International Relations, she started to dream about a building a movement of global citizens committed to solve global causes. When she settled in Argentina, she founded Tingua based on a solid policy of activating the potential of our participant as change makers working together sharing the same ethical values, ideals and committed to the welfare of our global society.
