Teen volunteering is a transformational experience, where you see parts of the world you never imagine existed, make new friends with locals and fellow participants, learn what you cannot experience in school and will apply your entire life, immerse yourself in a new language, grow as you experience a new culture, and participate in a community that needs your service. You will discover ideas leading to what you may wish to do as a career, start building your resume through your activities, and begin to shape your future while changing the world one step at a time. Below are some of the most popular teen volunteer programs for many causes and in many locations. With AMIGOS, you'll be immersed in another culture, collaborate with your host community on a development project, and work side by side with local youth meanwhile building your own leadership skills. AMIGOS programs focus on youth leadership in the fields of public health, children's rights, environmental sustainability, creative expression, social enterprise and sports and fitness.
