FEES & FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
AMIGOS program fees include dedicated travel support, comprehensive training, all food and housing, in-country travel and excursions, and access to our 24-hour On-Call Safety Management System. As a nonprofit organization, your fees also support community development projects and leadership training for local youth in communities across Latin America.
Due to group fundraising, local chapters offer lower program fees and some chapters may offer additional local discounts. Local chapter fees cover in-person training and support before, during, and after the Summer Program. For volunteers who don’t live near a local chapter, or have prior commitments throughout the spring, the National Chapter offers an intensive four-day group training workshop and individualized fundraising support. All costs related to this training are covered by the program fee.
