Mission Statement

We foster the development of children at social risk in Chile by empowering and training volunteers to serve as positive role models, educators and advocates of social justice.

Description

VE Global (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 eight local social service organizations including children’s shelters, community centers and schools in the most vulnerable neighborhoods of Santiago.

VE volunteers can have a truly transformational experience working with the children in our community. The work our volunteers do and the relationships they create develop valuable skills that serve them long after they leave VE. Our volunteers are more than just an extra set of hands at the organizations we serve--they actively and positively change the way that hundreds of children experience the world.

With an average on-the-ground presence of 25 full-time volunteers and four dedicated staff members, VE provides more than 70,000 hours of volunteer support each year and serves more than 300 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.
