Volunteer in Chile support has made huge improvements in the everyday lives of the Chilean orphans and children we work with. ABV volunteer support has helped expand the orphanage services, contributed to the improvement in literacy levels in the pre-school and provided hours of caring and concern for the for the young children.

With housing available up to 10 volunteers, A Broader View has hosted hundreds of high school student groups, family volunteer groups in La Serena Chile. For many high school students their service in Chile accounts for academic or community service credit through their school. Teenage volunteers (16-19) programs are popular over Spring and Winter Break, and for summer volunteer abroad projects.  If you have a group of 5 or more interested in volunteering together, customized programs can be arranged. A Broader View Volunteers has extensive experience working with students and teachers providing tailor-made service trips for small groups

Chile's striking natural wonders, its rich cultural history, friendly people and stable government make it an ideal place to visit and volunteer! Although Chile boasts one of the most stable economies in South America, Chile suffers from one of the most uneven distributions of wealth in the world.

There are estimates that almost 60% of Chileans live near or below poverty levels, with almost 3 million living in extreme poverty. ABV Volunteer project focus on supporting the children of Chile, at a very large orphanage and in several schools in La Serena.
