Volunteer Program

Women volunteers of America Developing Smiles work hundreds of hours every year fulfilling a mission of service and solidarity in helping communities with intense social problems and children in need.

They either join team efforts to create or support the extracurricular activities, or join committees to organize fundraising events…. Either way, they find an area where they feel can be resourceful.  America Developing Smiles of Puerto Rico works in conjunction with other nonprofit organizations and institutions as needed, to find the best resources available.  To date, the women of America Developing Smiles have provided over 300 hours of volunteer work per year.

There are various ways to help. Of course we would like to have you join in.

Art Projects

We’ve joined initiatives to promote the different expressions of the arts. Studies have demonstrated that from an early age, children benefit from cognitive process of development, and improving their writing, reading and comprehension skills.

With “Arts and Smiles”, our in-house arts program of early intervention for children and young teens at risk, we seek to prevent juvenile delinquency and other difficult social problems.

Community Impact

The new basketball court of the school Maria Auxiliadora, inaugurated in 2013 at a cost of $170,000, promotes the healthy recreation and entertainment in the school’s children and youngsters. It supports the school-community integration as well as the preventive policy and elements of social control.

We join our efforts in the promotion of projects and recreational activities which advance recreational habits in the community, within an educational framework of joy and fun, as well as through healthy, entertaining and satisfactory processes toward the increase in learning and an improved social and cultural human growth.
