Travel With a Purpose

Volunteering during a trip abroad allows you to engage in a unique and rewarding experience that can have a lasting impact and really change the way you think, act and approach life in the future. At VH we organize volunteering and travelling experiences and educational programs in which the volunteer work: has clear objectives that are possible to achieve yet maximize the time available, will benefit a community, and ensures the interaction and cultural exchange with the local people.

You can participate in a variety of group volunteer service projects in Chile, Brazil, Bolivia and Nicaragua that are focused on construction and beautification, conservation and sustainable agriculture, English teaching and educational exchange.

In our strive to make more Global Citizens we also operate Educational Programs. These are ideal for professors or teaching staff wishing to give students a hands-on, educational experience with a specific academic focus about an issue that affects the world today.

You can also join one of our individual volunteer programs in Chile. The programs we offer include conversation work, English teaching or social projects.

Our projects support a wide range of organizations from local schools, to community projects, indigenous communities, local NGOs and conservation initiatives.
