The Adelante BENEFIT

To launch our path forward, we hosted our first ever Adelante Benefit at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco on November 5, 2016. Live Cuban music was featured throughout the night.

The Adelante Benefit featured the voices of AMIGOS youth and provided opportunities to invest in future young people. Proceeds will help fund greater innovation and access so that more youth throughout the Americas may become Amigos.

The Adelante BENEFIT

At this event we honored Margaret White Guerriero, past President & CEO, for her many years of service and contributions to the organization.

AMIGOS MISSION AND PURPOSE

The mission of AMIGOS is to inspire and build young leaders through collaborative community development and immersion in cross cultural experiences.

We know AMIGOS is a transformational experience for young people. In the years ahead, we plan to shepherd AMIGOS into a new era where youth from all over the US and Latin America can join our programs and become Amigos.

Please join us as we begin this exciting new evolution of AMIGOS. Your support will make a profound difference for our participants!
