AMIGOS Youth Ambassadors study community development, civic engagement, and leadership theories and practice through a three-week International Training. During their International Training, participants learn about and engage with US and South American history and culture through host family stays, service work with US and South American peers, and visits to cultural and historic sites. The International Training provides Youth Ambassadors with hands on experience in the design and implementation of Community-Based Initiative (CBI). After returning home from the International Training, each participant carries out a CBI in his/her home community.
