Study Abroad in Valparaiso, Chile! Volunteering. Community Service.

For four years we have been working with private and governmental institutions along with students providing community services in the region. The experience has been very rewarding for both the community and international students.

  • Education Affairs - English opens doors
    This is a government program that started three semesters ago and works with public schools in Viña del Mar and Valparaíso. This program helps to support the teacher in the classroom. A foreign student is integrated into the classroom, assisting the English teacher and helping motivate the students to learn a second language.

    This is a center that helps public school students. They assist high risk and slow learners in their homework to achieve better grades and a sense of accomplishment. This program offers workshops to Chilean students with the purpose of teaching them the importance of education. Foreign students can also offer language classes in English, German and French.
