This summer, do something that will change your life. You can learn about the world by living in it, through Amigos de las Americas. This not-for-profit volunteered side-by-side with local residents, made friends to last a lifetime, and gained confidence and leadership skills. Come and meet Amigos alumni. They are local teens who spent last summer in Latin America as volunteers through an organization called Amigos de las Americas. Our programs give you the opportunity to gain essential education and life experience, leadership training, and an entirely new network of friends by living and working in amazing communities throughout Central and South America. Do you have your own experience of breaking free and stepping out of your element? Bring it on! Geared to teens but everyone is welcomed. Pizza served.
