We are always looking to connect students, teachers, alumni, diaspora, professionals, or anyone interested in giving their time & efforts in a volunteer capacity at the school. 

Details of any planned group service trips will be posted here.

Otherwise, if you have an interest in volunteering at any other time throughout the year, please send us an email at sebestienegassie@gmail.com  introducing yourself, your interests, your connection to the school (if any), and any questions you may have. We would be happy to coordinate a volunteer placement for you at the school.

Offer your Professional services

We realize that not everyone will have the ability to spend their time volunteering in-person. Nevertheless, you can still support the school community in a volunteer capacity by sharing your professional expertise with us!

As we are a volunteer team working to support this public institution, we are looking to connect with those who have special skill sets, such as finance / accounting, legal, fundraising, marketing, education, curriculum development, management, leadership, IT, athletics, photography, filmmaking...and almost anything you can imagine.



Without the thoughtful and generous support of donors like you, we are unable to realize the long list of meaningful educational programs & opportunities we envision for the school. Please consider making a tax-deductible* donation today using either of two options:

1. Send a check made out to "Visions Global Empowerment" to 1621 Barry Avenue #PH1, Los Angeles, CA, 90025

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others."

We love connecting with others and exploring how we can collaborate.
