We hope you will join us for the 3rd Annual Breakfast to Benefit AMIGOS. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the 55-year history of AMIGOS and raise awareness for our international youth leadership programs.

Funds raised from the Breakfast will support our current work and increase financial assistance awards for students. You can support the Breakfast by becoming a sponsor today!


Since our founding in Houston in 1965, AMIGOS has served more than 29,000 young people throughout the Americas. Our programs provide students ages 13-22 the opportunity to gain hands on experience in cultural exchange and collaborative community service. Through our programs students develop personal leadership skills, improve their ability to work cross-culturally, and become positive agents of change for themselves, their communities, and the world.

Take a look at the Impact Report here.

The 2nd Annual Breakfast to Benefit AMIGOS on October 24, 2018 raised $60,000. The funds expanded financial assistance awards for 2019 Houston area youth volunteers and supported our programs.

AMIGOS students positively impact their host communities and return home with greater leadership skills, a higher sense of purpose, and a better understanding of collaborative community service. We will continue to empower young leaders in Houston and look forward to sharing their inspiring stories with you.
