Program Overview

Program Description:

Enjoy working with kids and interested in empowering communities in need?

Interested in playing sports, making arts and crafts, and helping kids learn about teamwork? Join forces with a local nonprofit organization serving underprivileged children and teens in Santiago. You’ll gain valuable leadership and coaching experience while playing a part in improving the lives of local youth who might otherwise spend their days on the street. Your help can literally make someone’s day.

In addition to service work you’ll take functional Spanish classes to help you communicate with the local community and have ample time to practice your language skills in the cafes, shops and markets of this scenic hilltop city. Your actual service experience will be enhanced by the service-learning workshops that you and your peers will participate in over the course of each block. CIEE recognizes the importance of framing the service experience and the value of increasing participants' leadership skills, ability to problem-solve, build community relations and initiate change. Spend a few hours per week focused on these complementary skills to make your service experience even more impactful for you and the community!
