Description

Located in central Chile, Valparaíso is a city where most people live in the hills surrounding its industrial port. VSP works in the city's poorest neighborhoods, which are affected by violent crime, drug abuse, and chronic unemployment. VSP provides a vital role in our students' lives. Our students have few positive role models and limited educational and social support. Through surfing, academic tutoring, & environmental stewardship we engage, educate, and motivate our kids. Kids enter VSP as young as 8 years old and graduate at 18. Many of our graduates are the first in their families to attend college. They are also returning to VSP to volunteer as mentors, giving back to the next generation in their own communities.
