Founded in 1965, AMIGOS is the safest, most authentic volunteer and immersion program in Latin America for young people ages 13 to 22. Volunteers get the opportunity to explore a new country, learn Spanish, bond with their host family, and make a positive impact by working on a community service project side by side with local peers and community partners. Our relationships with local and international organizations — built over 50 years — enable authentic engagements in communities across the region.
AMIGOS just launched new programs for summer 2021! All programs are pod-based, meaning volunteers will live together in a group of 15–20 students total and adhere to enhanced health and safety measures.
