We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.
Our mission is to empower and connect local organizations to promote improvement for the whole community and take a unified approach to community development. We also aim to create a network between volunteers and local organizations in order to foster an exchange of culture and ideas which can help both to grow in different ways.
The organizations and communities where we work are the main pillars of Voluntario Global. Together with local organizations, we determine our objectives and the type of volunteer we need. Put simply, Voluntario Global could not exist without the organizations, as we work together for their development and growth.

While hard skills are mostly related to formal education and training, soft skills tend to develop with experience. Soft skills are deeply linked to your personality, the way you communicate and bond with others.
Voluntario Global is not just an organization, it's a community made up of local organizations, volunteers and institutions that work together for social justice.
Teamwork is a powerful concept that you can put to work in nearly any industry. Strategically building a team for important projects is an efficient way to tackle challenges. Teamwork offers numerous benefits.
Most of us want to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We do not volunteer, for the most part, because it benefits us. We volunteer because it makes a difference.
