Review for Amigos De Las Americas, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Amigos changed my son's life. He volunteered in every capacity that Amigos offered. He became a trainer for the local Amigos grooup. His Spanish skills are exemplary. NOw he works in a job that is similar to Amigos and travels often to Latin/South America.
I became a parent who trusted her child's instincts adn good judgement even tho he was far away. I have watched him grow into the wonderful, kind adult he is today.

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

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

WHen my son was involved in Amigos (Approx 2001 until 2010). I appreciated that Amigos wa a resource for me but allowed him to jave autonomy.

Role:  General Member of the Public & parent: on local board for 2 years.
