AMIGOS is creating a world in which young people realize their full potential as leaders and global citizens. We provide extraordinary opportunities for youth participants to design and lead projects in collaboration with partner organizations across the Americas. Our strong partner network built over 50 years of working in the region, enables authentic engagements for community development.
As a leader in international youth development, AMIGOS gives young people the chance to gain life experience that is hard to get in a classroom. Together with 23 US and Latin American peers, program participants work on projects in areas such as health, environment, youth entrepreneurship, children’s rights, creative expression, or sports and fitness. This creates an opportunity for youth to develop character defining skills in leadership and interpersonal growth.
AMIGOS uniquely prepares young people to manage projects, solve problems, accept responsibility, and learn with humility. Living with host families provides participants with an authentic cultural and language immersion that fosters a new level of social and global awareness.
Our model of developing critically engaged leaders is universally beneficial for every young person across the Americas. High school and college students can participate in AMIGOS cultural exchange programs. AMIGOS is excited to be distinguished in our field, providing youth development opportunities for both Latin American and US participants.
AMIGOS empowers young people with life experience that inspires them to do great things and drive social change. The success of our 26,000 alumni demonstrates that young people always rise to meet the challenges they face.
