VE Global recruits, trains and organizes international volunteers to achieve our 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 our network of 6 local children's homes, community centers, schools and preschools in some of the most vulnerable areas of Santiago.
With an average on-the-ground presence of 15 full-time volunteers and two dedicated staff members, VE provides more than 40,000 hours of volunteer support each year and serves more than 200 children daily. Through this work, VE strives to contribute to a brighter future both for the children it serves and the volunteers that work with them, a goal achieved by training volunteers to become educators and role models that serve children both now and into the future.
VE volunteers help implement our four educational programs:
¡Vamos a Leer!
Festival de Arte
Liga de Deportes and
English in Motion.
Each volunteer is placed in one of our 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.
Our volunteers support the organization by administrative and office support as well working to improve our 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.
We do not provide accommodations but can help volunteers find something in the area.
VE does not charge fees for volunteers.
