Meet Bryan from Costa Rica!🇨🇷 He was part of our Community Impact Project back in 2020 and is now a participant on the Social Impact Accelerator: Powered by Capital Plus Financial. Here is what he shared with us about his projects with AMIGOS:

"Meeting so many young people at AMIGOS has allowed me to know such different perspectives. As a result of these experiences, I have managed to represent my country in international summits such as Concausa 2030, helped 2 years in a row at the Adelante Benefit Festival, my Community Impact Project (Stand2Learn) has helped more than 120 students in my school, and now, thanks to the Social Impact Accelerator, public schools in Costa Rica will have the opportunity to promote spaces that foster student talent to anyone, regardless of their social, economic or cultural context."

Keep up the great work, Bryan!👏

🌟🇪🇨 Alumni Voices: Brittany Santos was part of our La Costa program in Ecuador this summer, and she is now part of our virtual Social Impact Accelerator. We were able to sit down and talk to her about her experiences with AMIGOS so far: from the funniest memories she has with AMIGOS, to how the programs have impacted her as an individual. She also shared some of the work she did this past summer:

"Our project focused on climate change and disaster recovery. We were able to repaint and sand off a community building that had been destroyed by a natural disaster. The next session of AMIGOS volunteers were able to finish the project. It was really impactful to see how we helped get the community building back up and running."
