We are a nonprofit organization with a solid commitment to helping children and young adults with limited economic resources. We believe in education’s growth capabilities to resolve social problems. Therefore, we help support schools and youth organizations in need of financial resources, or develop programs to support their regular curriculum.
How We Can Help Our Kids?

Program Development and Initiatives

To strengthen our our organization’s mission, America Developing Smiles of Puerto Rico seeks different initiatives and support from individuals, institutions, and NGOs looking to support our educational program and areas of involvement.

Women Volunteers

The women who volunteer for America Developing Smiles work hundreds of hours every year and are the ones who take on the responsibilities needed to achieve our mission of service and solidarity for the community. To this date, each women volunteer donates America Developing Smiles more than 200 hours each year. There are various ways of getting into action. Of course, we would like to have you.

Special Projects

America Developing Smiles of Puerto Rico also develops different initiatives searching for support from private, governmental, and nonprofit organizations to raise funds, help our extracurricular educational program and strengthen our organization’s mission with co-operative alliances and workshops.

Supporting the Arts

We’ve always supported art initiatives because studies have shown that practicing art from an early age benefits a child’s learning and cognitive process. It helps their writing, reading, and general understanding. As a result, we’ve established “Arts and Smiles,” our very own prevention and early intervention program for young children and children who are at risk, so that we can prevent future juvenile delinquency and other social problems of our society.


The construction project for Colegio María Auxiliadora’s new basketball court rooftop promotes a fun and healthy environment for the children. It also helps promote a better community and school integration with preventive politics and social control. 

Join our efforts in promoting fun educational projects and activities that encourage even more recreational habits in the community, like teaching healthy and appeasing practices that increase every individual’s social and cultural growth.
