VE Global

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 six local partner organizations, which include children’s shelters, community centers and schools in the most vulnerable neighborhoods 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 commit to a minimum stay of 4 months and two weeks. VE Global takes its mission and vision very seriously and believes that short-term volunteer opportunities with children at social risk can do more harm than good. As a nonprofit organization working with children who have, in many cases, experienced abuse, severe neglect and abandonment, we believe that a longer-term commitment is necessary.

VE Global’s volunteer program has the particularity to be a No-Fee program. However, your support is critical in making sure that program administrative and operational costs are covered. Every volunteer thus commits to fundraising actively throughout their stay in Santiago. Learn more about volunteer fundraising here.

In return for their contributions, hard work and enduring efforts promoting VE and its ideals, VE volunteers receive:

  • Over 100 hours of training in 4 months
  • 10 days of orientation and initial formation in children education
  • 24/7 continuous support and emergency assistance
  • Help in finding accommodation once arriving in Santiago
  • Two vacation days per month worked
  • A mid-term Jornada, Our version of a corporate retreat
  • Important advice on adjusting to life in Chile and managing culture shock
  • A VE t-shirt and bag

The VE family is a strong international community of more than 450 volunteers from more than 35 different countries. We hope our antiguo volunteers will stay engaged with our community and thrive to remain strong advocates of social justice long after the end of their volunteer commitment, wherever life may take them afterwards.
