Bring hope and education to 300 children in Chile

Taking Time to Reflect

We believe the work we do is important, fostering the development of children at-risk through volunteers that mentor and educate them. We also believe the volunteers who do it need time for reflection. VE volunteers do everything from teach reading to wipe runny noses, and while much of what we do is fun, it is also hard and emotional work.

That's why, every VE class of volunteers goes to "Jornada."  A volunteer retreat, a weekend away from the loud noises of the city, a chance to take deep breaths and give volunteers a time to reflect on their experiences. It's here we gain insight from our fellow volunteers and learn new techniques for helping the children we serve. On Sunday, we leave, riding the bus back into Santiago with renewed energies to work with the kids and show them that they truly deserve love.
