Gifts made in memory of Patrick James Flaherty will support AMIGOS, including expansion of our gap programs in Latin America.
AMIGOS Gap participants are uniquely curious, intentional and committed to the mission of AMIGOS because of the long term nature of their program. Our gap participants are a focused and inspirational group who crave a more mature role and deeper connection to Latin America and positively reflect the values, passions and career path of Patrick Flaherty.
Our vision for expanding AMIGOS Gap Programs is:
- Offer greater packages of financial assistance awards to gap participants
- Increase recruitment, marketing and outreach to offer gap to more youth and traditionally underserved populations
- Develop and mature our gap programs within our current host countries ex: expand support and local staffing for our Nicaragua and Ecuador Projects, pursue more year-long partnerships with local agencies
- Grow our gap programs into other countries and pursue partnerships with more universities
