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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a volunteer with this program in 05. Now I am a trainer, helping high school students prepare for their amazing summers to come. I feel very connected to Amigos and it was the event in my life that led me to becoming a Spanish teacher.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

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.

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

the comfort that I gained with speaking and applying Spanish in all contexts. I am now a high school Spanish teacher, recruiting my own students for an incredible life-changing summer experience.

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

Recruit students from all states, and not just emphasis the cities that chapters are located in. I would also create a recruiting program geared toward small liberal arts colleges across the country.

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