AMIGOS offers innovative programs and an exceptional history:
For more than four decades, Amigos de las Américas (AMIGOS) has facilitated transformational community service involving more than 20,000 youth Volunteers and thousands of communities in Latin America. Through our programs, high school and college-aged Volunteers jump in with head, heart, and hands to contribute to health, education, and environmental service projects.
AMIGOS works to unite the Americas:
AMIGOS projects are a collaborative effort between our participants, a vigorous network of Pan-American partner agencies, and the local knowledge and experience of our host communities.
AMIGOS values youth leadership and creativity:
At the center of AMIGOS are the youth Volunteers who become catalysts, teachers, learners, and friends through the implementation of community service projects. These same Volunteers return to lead our programs in Latin America as Project Staff. AMIGOS is committed to being a youth-led organization in which creativity, initiative, and multicultural understanding are highly valued.
