Chile, the longest country in the World, claims almost 3000 miles of the Pacific shoreline. This is a land of contrasts and extremes; with glacial landscapes of Patagonia in the south and the heat of the famously dry Atacama Desert in the north. Running almost the entire length of the country are the impressive peaks of the Andes mountain chain which are visible from many towns and cities.
Since Chile is one of the narrowest countries – only about 125 miles at its widest point, the sea and the mountains are never more than about two to three hours apart, anywhere in the country. Chile’s striking natural wonders, its rich cultural history, friendly people and security make it an ideal volunteer location.
Chile has seen many changes in the past 25 years, now boasting one of the most stable economies in South America. Though Chile’s economy appears to be the fastest growing economies in the region, 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.
Our programs allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the people, sights, smells and tastes of Chile. Volunteering in Chile is a way to totally immerse yourself in Spanish culture.
This is a great opportunity to make life-long friends, learn a foreign language and discover that one person really can make a difference. Volunteer with us and see A Broader View of the World.

Volunteer opportunities are available in many areas of the country. Our local Project Coordinators are located in La Serena, Santiago and Concepcion. Some programs are based in more rural areas like the Elqui Valley in the north and Arauco in the south of this wonderful country.
