In 1965 Guy Bevil led a caravan of 181 young volunteers from Texas to Honduras to fight a growing polio epidemic. Over 50 years and 28,000+ alumni later, AMIGOS is still empowering young people to have impactful immersion experiences and be students of a new culture. While AMIGOS provides an incredible summer and gap program for hundreds of emerging leaders every year, the opportunities for growth and leadership don’t stop there.
Alumni continue to build their leadership skills through second summers, serving on project staff, or training and recruiting future students to AMIGOS with our regional chapters. For those committed to representing AMIGOS nationally by speaking with prospective applicants, spearheading creative outreach activities, and providing feedback to help shape the future of AMIGOS – the National Young Alumni Council is for you. Apply to be one of a select 10 representatives and let us invest in you.
