VE Global (VE) encourages volunteers from around the world to forge the positive growth and development of children at social risk in Chile.
VE 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 nearly 450 full-time volunteers from more than 35 countries into our network of 8 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: ¡Vamos a Leer!, Festival de Arte, Liga de Deportes and English in Motion. According to their preferences and skills, volunteers are 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 to whom they provide support and friend
