Amigos de las Americas (AMIGOS) is a leader in international youth development, supporting young people across the Americas in leadership training and collaborative community development projects. We are creating a world in which young people become life-long catalysts for social change.
The AMIGOS Gap Program provides a hands-on, real-life experience for participants to unlock their potential as a catalyst for social change. Every participant will be placed in a volunteer internship with a local community development organization, creating a crucial opportunity to enrich their worldview before deciding on a field of study or career path.
Monthly excursions offer an opportunity to learn more about the local culture, relax, and get to know your fellow Gap participants.Hike to the top of the breathtaking Mombacho Volcano, visit the beautiful colonial town of Granada, tour a sustainable coffee plantation, or admire the biodiversity of the Nicaraguan rainforest.
