BENEFITING: VALPO SURF PROJECT INC
Our goal is to use surfing instruction and academic mentoring to encourage English language skills, personal character development, and environmental consciousness among underprivileged and at-risk youth in Valparaíso, Chile and coastal cities across the globe. As surfers, teachers, students, and business professionals, the Valpo Surf Project believes the world can be changed, one young person at a time. Our kids live in places where drug use, violence, and chronic unemployment are a part of everyday life. For them, the VSP is a constant source of support all the way from childhood to young adulthood. Our commitment to build strong, personal, long-term relationships with each of our students is the core philosophy of the VSP.
