Support & Convenience
VWI staff is available 24/7 throughout the program, beginning before participants depart for South America to assist with booking flights, information on visas, vaccinations, etc. In country, staff is available to support for any need.
Venturers live, work and travel with a group of diverse remote professionals. During each of our weekly meetups, Venturers have the chance to try a new local flavor, and get to know other participants in the program. We discuss our experiences from the week and invite guests from the community to join us.
In Medellín, we will match you with a personalized project opportunity. We match our Venturers with a project based on the needs of our organizations as well as the skills and interests of each participant. We also coordinate visits to various partner sites, so that you have the opportunity to view the work of your peers.
VWI is your cultural insider. We'll help you dig deeper into Colombian culture by providing you access to the best local events and by offering weekend trips for the whole group. Together we travel outside Medellín, visiting neighboring cities, small towns and the natural wonders of Columbia. Venturers also have the opportunity to learn Spanish through immersion or through Spanish lessons arranged by VWI with a local tutor.
