AMIGOS Community Impact - Volunteer Now!
This summer AMIGOS had 144 students from nine countries participate in our online Community Impact Project. They talked, danced, cooked, ate, practiced Spanish, created service projects, and connected meaningfully to each other and to their communities. Students were challenged to question their assumptions about the world and to create positive change close to home. And AMIGOS is doing it again now for this fall!

“Going into the CIP, I thought it would be merely about working and getting my program set up. However, once the program was kicked off, I realized how close everyone would get to each other. We can laugh, joke around, and even cry sometimes--and we will still not be judged. This program has brought me so much joy and I'm so proud to have been a part of it...I would describe the CIP experience as fun, supportive, and completely nonjudgemental. I want to thank everyone who was a part of this for bringing me in and including me in everything. I'm gonna miss it ;(“ From Ava C, age 17 - San Diego, CA
