AMIGOS  empowers and connects young leaders across the AMERICas.

And the world needs these young people more than ever.

 

The Adelante BENEFIT

Building on the outstanding success of our inaugural event in 2016, we held our second AMIGOS Adelante Benefit at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco.

Since 1965, AMIGOS has been the most transformative cultural immersion and youth leadership program for young people. And we understand that building compassionate and connected global citizens has never been more important.

The Adelante Benefit featured the voices of our youth and was attended by inspired leaders, elected officials, and AMIGOS enthusiasts to celebrate the core belief that young people can change the world.

Together, we know that AMIGOS is the most transformative cultural immersion and youth leadership program for young people.

Proceeds from the event supported the growth of our programs and funded increased access for youth throughout the Bay Area and the Americas.

If you are interested in getting involved in our next event, please contact Jenny Claycombe.

To better understand the legacy of AMIGOS, the impact of our programs, and the stories of our youth, check out this short video!
