Go Beyond Travel: Ecuador Gap Year

AMIGOS was founded 55 years ago when a group of teenagers traveled from Houston to Honduras to fight a polio outbreak.⠀ ⠀
While today we offer more diverse programming, community collaboration, and emphasize sustainability, the core of AMIGOS remains true.⠀ ⠀
Watch "The Heart of AMIGOS" video at the link in our bio to see how our programs still impact people today.
