Welcome to the Albuquerque Chapter of Amigos de las Américas.
We're excited to be working with new group of great young adults! They will travel to Latin America in summer 2013. Stay tuned!
Volunteers are working hard to raise the funds they need for their trip. Please help them out by donating.
LOOKING FOR A FANTASTIC SUMMER EXPERIENCE?
You have come to the right place! Amigos de las Américas (AMIGOS) is an international, not-for-profit organization with more than 30 chapters across the United States that provides unparalleled leadership and community service opportunities for young people while concurrently contributing to the well-being of hundreds of communities throughout the Americas.
Since its founding in 1965, more than 20,000 high school and college-age students have served as AMIGOS Volunteers. Through their training and service experience they gain life-changing insights about other cultures, effective civic engagement and their personal potential.
AMIGOS gives young people an extraordinary opportunity to rise to the challenge of independently managing great responsibility within multicultural settings. Extensive training programs teach youth valuable skills, such as how to build effective teams to foster sustainable community improvements.
Every year our volunteers spend six to eight weeks in a host country working on different public service projects.
Life-long friendships have been built between AMIGOS volunteers and their adopted communities. Thousands of young people have learned invaluable lessons about cultural differences, community service, and their own ability to lead.
