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.
AMIGOS has been working with high school youth for over 50 years in Latin America. We are excited to announce a new program this year with Discover AMIGOS. This is open to incoming freshmen and sophomores. This group will travel together with educators and learn more about the mission of AMIGOS in Nicaragua. Cultural activities will highlight the importance of community based project initiatives and service learning. Reflect each evening on the events of the day while discerning more about the need for collaboration. Stay in hostels throughout the week and a host family on the weekend. This two week experience is a great way to learn more about cultural immersion and prepare yourself for longer immersion experiences in the future.
