Where else can a teen learn leadership, independence, responsibility, expand cultural awareness in a way that will change their life and those around them. My daughter participated in Amigos during the Summer of 2011 in Honduras and her trip was amazing. It was not all rosy, but that is part of the growth. The relationships built are lifelong. This experience definitely will direct her future decisions. The time frame is balanced for the age. It provides a true immersion in the language and culture, not just a week long retreat/mission. They experience some politics and have to cope with varied situations. The support structure is also balanced in that it provides time for the youth to experience different levels of success and failure in a very, very safe environment. The life lessons are priceless.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Amigos also provides opportunities for parents to engage the local culture discussing the program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Express to perspective volunteers and parents, that this is a commitment and the year long training is required. A number of youth in the Chapter dropped out mid-cycle and i don't think they took this as seriously as a sports team. But it is better to drop out than to travel if you are not suited for this program

My daugher has spent 3 summers with Amigos de Las Americas. Two as a vol in communities and 1 as a route supervisor. The training she initially received in order to go out into a community followed by learning how to work with an unknown group has served her so well in many areas of her life. She has matured beyond any expectation I could have had for a then 16 year old. She has made lifetime friends, learned and come to love a different culture and has expanded her family. Oh and is now fleunt in a second language. Amigos has been an exceptional growning opurtunity for her.

I wish all students would consider this type of volunteer project. It is such a remarkable chance to learn and grow.
