Our History

America Developing Smiles (ADS) is composed by a group of volunteer women who share a common interest: helping the neediest communities of countries such as Venezuela, Nicaragua, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Dominican Republic.

To date, ADS has contributed over 2 Million Dollars towards improving the lives of children in these countries.

Volunteering in ADS

ADS is a Gold-Level GuideStar participant (*), demonstrating its commitment to transparency.

(*) GuideStar USA, Icn. is an information service specializing in reporting on U.S. nonprofit companies. In 2016, its database provided information on 2.5 million organizations. GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles implemented three seals based on the information a nonprofit provides in its profile: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.

America Developing Smiles is run by passionate volunteers who believe in sowing the seeds of a brighter future. What ties us together is a sense of Social Responsibility, a sensitivity to help others.

ADS volunteers are professional women who dedicate the skills they have for the greater good. Each person can commit as much or as little time as they have available. Our volunteers believe their work has contributed to a good cause and their work has impacted human lives.

We are constantly looking for support from youth, children and adults for fundraising activities and logistics!

We welcome your help whether you have a few hours a month, one hour at an event, or professional skills that you’d like to offer to ADS from the comfort of your home.

Are you ready to make a difference? If so, fill out the volunteer form to receive information on upcoming volunteer opportunities!

We’d love to welcome you to the ADS family. Together we are Sowing the Seeds of Hope.
