Head Soccer Volunteer

This program was my first volunteering abroad. It exceeded all of my expectations and would definitely recommend this to a family member or friend. The full time staff is there to help you as well as 100% committed to the goals of the program. They show up every day with incredible enthusiasm and it wears off on each volunteer to make the day that much better.

Family, passion, inspiring

I wanted to volunteer in South American and I love working with kids, After researching, this program stuck out and didn't seem too big. To be honest, it was also some luck.

The kids at the market. It is hard to choose a specific market or child, but their perseverance and ability to always find a silver lining no matter what the situation.

Children, playing, traveling, fun, enthusiasm

I chose this because of a friend's recommendation and positive experience with South America in general.

My memorable experience was when a child was crying because he was beaten by the parents and within the morning, because of the program, he was smiling again. :)
