Description

VE Global (VE) recruits, trains and organizes international volunteers to achieve their mission of fostering the positive development of children at social risk in Chile. VE has successfully integrated over 450 full-time volunteers from more than 35 countries into their network of 6 local children’s homes, community centers, schools and preschools in some of the most vulnerable areas of Santiago.

VE volunteers help implement our four educational programs:

  • ┬íVamos a Leer!
  • Festival de Arte
  • Liga de Deportes and,
  • English in Motion.

Each volunteer is placed in one of their partner social service organizations where they mentor children in a variety of ways, from assisting with homework to playing games to creating and running their own workshops and activities. Volunteers build strong relationships with the children for whom they provide support, friendship and the chance to just have fun and be a kid. Their volunteers support the organization by administrative and office support as well working to improve the educational programs, or assisting with Development through communications outreach and fundraising efforts. This gives volunteers the opportunity not only to grow and learn professionally at an international NGO, but also to have a sustainable impact on VE Global as an organization.
