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

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Amigos was the best experience of my life. It brought me closer to my family and friends at home as I volunteered abroad. I came home with so much love and gratitude for my life and for the people who I met in Honduras. When I left my town, I truly felt that a piece of me was being taken away and saved in the hearts of my 120 person village. This was the most meaningful summer that I could have imagined. Now that I have graduated from college, I am not only still connected to the people I met and my dedication to service, but I have become a Spanish teacher so that I can teach what I learned to others while speaking in Spanish, one of the highlights and challenges of my adventures in Honduras.

Role:  Volunteer & My town received a special grant to construct a library/second classroom for the school in the town.
