Last week, VSP got together with ChileSurf, Chile’s School of Extreme Surf, and Roxy to clean La Boca beach in ConCon. We collected 160 bags of trash that were left behind after the tsunami and earthquake on February 27th. Also, there was a lot of garbage left behind beach goers. Our students were excellent ambassadors and we are very proud of their work they’re doing.
Activities like these are important elements to the aspects of healthy environment and community service from our program. We look forward to collaborating with other local organizations and business to continue these efforts. Many thanks to everyone who participated! Especially our volunteers Alexandria, Alvarro, Jaime, Jeanette, Tara, Mark and Reese! The kids love you guys!
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 Valparaiso, Chile.
