AMIGOS offers Gap Year and Gap Semester opportunities in Nicaragua, Colombia, and Brazil with the goal of empowering youth leaders and promoting community development throughout the Americas.
Gap volunteers intern with local development organizations, live with host families, and collaborate with community leaders to carry out sustainable development projects. Additionally, volunteers organize and lead extra-curricular activities for local youth, and create multimedia projects to track and share their activities.
As a group, volunteers participate in monthly workshops as well as cultural and historical excursions around their host country. Please visit our website for more detailed information about the structure of each individual Gap Program!
