We believe in the power of young people to change the world

And the world needs these young people more than ever. This year marks a remarkable evolution for Amigos de las Américas (AMIGOS). We are celebrating nearly 28,000 young people who have become Amigos and our commitment to the change that they make in the world.

BREAKFAST TO BENEFIT AMIGOS

To launch our path forward, we will host our inaugural breakfast for AMIGOS at the Houston Country Club on October 18, 2017.

The breakfast will feature voices of AMIGOS youth and provided opportunities to invest in future AMIGOS participants. All contributions made at the event will directly benefit AMIGOS and financial assistance awards for Houston-based youth.

Emmy award winning reporter and ABC anchor, Art Rascon, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

This event is being organized in partnership with the AMIGOS Houston Chapter.

OUR 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!
