VE Global

Description of organisation:

VE Global fosters the development of children at social risk in Chile by training and empowering volunteers to serve as positive role models, educators and advocates of social justice in order to work towards our vision of creating a global community that ensures equality of opportunity for all children. VE has successfully integrated over 450 full-time volunteers from more than 35 countries into our network of local partner organizations, including children’s shelters, community centers and schools in the most vulnerable neighborhoods of Santiago, creating engaging education and recreation programs for children. We also develop leadership and mentoring skills in volunteers throughout their intensive, long-term service commitment.

General information:

Volunteers build strong relationships with the children for whom they provide support, friendship and the chance to just have fun and be a kid during their full-time commitment with VE Global at their placements in VE Global partner organizations. Volunteers work roughly 75% of their time in the VE partner organization and the other 25% on supporting VE Global directly as part of the team.
