With the support of our spirited local Armenian community, Buenos Aires became the first city in South America to host an AGBU Global Leadership Program. One of the most dynamic cities in Latin America, the rich history and vibrant cultural arts and culinary scene provide a truly unique experience for participants. As one of the largest business and financial centers on the continent, Buenos Aires is a global capital offering participants an array of experiences in some of Argentina’s most sought-after companies and organizations.
Living in Buenos Aires means participants will explore the famous Plaza Armenia, learning about the history of the local Armenian community and how this Diaspora community impacted the city. The relationships built with local Armenian community members in Buenos Aires adds a special element to this experience.
Get ready to tango! Among the activities organized by local AGBU leadership, participants enjoy the world-renowned Señor Tango show at the magnificent Colon Theatre. Two memorable day-trips fill the weekends with adventure and a taste of Argentina. For the first, participants are welcomed into the land of the gaucho, exploring the beautiful colonial village of San Antonio de Areco and ending the day with an excursion on horseback and a traditional asado. For the second, participants discover new terrain, traveling north to Tigre, where the delta of the breath-taking Paraná River starts.
All participants stay in apartment-style rooms at the Callao Suites in Recoleta located in the heart of Buenos Aires, near famous landmarks like el Cementerio de Recoleta, Centro Cultural Recoleta and the Museo de las Bellas Artes.
