VE Global Overview
Programs: Liga de Deportes: Our monthly health and wellness league offers children a safe outlet to engage in games and competitive sports, while building their self-esteem and knowledge about healthy living.
¡Vamos a Leer!: During the summer, we host our literacy program to show the children the joy in reading. We encourage the children to select their own books and motivate them to finish the stories they choose, giving them a sense of individual achievement and helping improve their overall reading proficiency. We finish the program by throwing Carnaval, an exciting festival to celebrate their achievements.
Festival de Arte: To celebrate artwork that children and volunteers create together during ongoing art workshops, VE hosts an art festival twice a year, providing a supportive space to build children’s confidence and show off their creativity.
English in Motion: Chilean school children are required to learn English; our English program provides a fun, interactive way to support what the kids learn in class. Practicing grammar might be a game of Simon Says, and learning vocabulary could have the children off on a scavenger hunt. Lessons vary depending on the volunteer, but they are always educational and entertaining.
