Review for AMIGOS DE LAS AMERICAS, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a woman in my 30s, I always feel a little ridiculous saying that one of my most life-changing experiences happened when I was 16 years old. But Amigos still is and probably always will be one experience that grew me and stretched me in ways I did not think possible. I was able to practice leadership skills and I developed my cultural awareness and sensitivity. I am now in local non profit and believe that Amigos is largely responsible for preparing me for my career.

Role:  Volunteer & I spent two months in Costa Rica, creating housing for local teachers, teaching dental hygiene and gardening to my host community.
