The Heart of AMIGOS

Go Beyond Travel: Ecuador Gap Year

Take your first dive into Latin America with Discover AMIGOS!

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with @FeedingAmerica! Feeding America food banks are on the frontlines responding to the COVID-19 crisis and are rising to the challenge of feeding more families than ever before, but they can't do it alone. Volunteers are critical in this effort. To help meet this growing need, AMIGOS students will work together with local Feeding America food banks to take action in their communities. Stay tuned for more to come on this incredible partnership! If you would like to get involved in the meantime, find your local food bank and explore how you can help make a difference today --> link in bio. ...
