VOLUNTEERING

HELPING ANOTHER, IS TO HELP YOURSELF

AN EXPERIENCE THAT CHANGES A LIFE

SUCCEED TO  VOLUNTEER

Volunteers can light up even the darkest scenarios.

If you have the time, the energy and the desire to live an enriching experience with the children in one of the permanent venues of our inflatable games, you can become a volunteer of the expedition.

If you cannot help in person, you can choose a financial collaboration with the project through different means: either by becoming a member or making one time donation.

100% of the people that are part of Expedition Smile do it as volunteers. All the funds raised, time and effort have only one goal: to reach more children. For that we need your help.

VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS

We want you to be part of our solidarity project. You just need to play and be a child again.

¿Have you ever volunteered? Volunteering is a task that goes beyond “giving”, because what you “receive”. In return, it will improve your life. You learn to value life in a different perspective and to change your way of thinking and feeling. Being a volunteer enriches you as a person, by growing in positive values.

Each year, a series of spots are opened, which are limited and vary according to the availability of the centers that host the volunteers.

The destinations where we have permanent inflatable games, and carry out the volunteer campaigns are:

  • Misiones, ARGENTINA (Permanent Game) 
  • C.A.B.A & Gran Bs.As. (Itinerant Game)
  • Little Corn Island, NICARAGUA (Permanent Game)
  • Tessaout, MOROCCO (Permanent Game)
