At the very heart of our program model, partner agencies are local organizations in Latin America that share our goal to engage young people as leaders and global citizens. We have built strong relationships with a network of partner agencies across the Americas over our 55-year history.
These partners amplify our impact, and we amplify theirs. We work together to develop region-specific work plans, incorporating our partners’ organizational goals into our programs. Our partners help us consider community interests, identify host families and communities, and monitor safety in the region. They are critical to the success and sustainability of our work. If your organization is interested in joining our network of Latin American partner agencies, please contact our Programs Team at [email protected]
Our Latin American partner agencies include: Casa de la Juventud Pérez Zeledón, MiAMBIENTE (the Panamanian Ministry of the Environment), MINSA (the Panamanian Ministry of Health), MIDES (the Panamanian Ministry of Social Development), SINAC (the Costa Rican National Parks Service), and PLAN International in the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.
