ABOUT

The AMIGOS Colorado Chapter is part of a 20 Chapter Network that recruits, trains, and supports AMIGOS volunteers and families in their local community. Volunteers from the greater Denver Metropolitan Area, Boulder, and surrounding counties train together as a group before leaving for their summer experience in Latin America. Our board supports volunteers with packing, pre-departure immunizations, fundraising, and overall preparation.

This 2021-2022 cycle, the Colorado Chapter is not running local operations. All Denver area students should apply through the AMIGOS National Chapter.
