Promoting leadership, understanding and opportunity to the Americas

Promoting Leadership, Understanding and Opportunity in the Americas

We not only dream of a better world, we roll up our sleeves and make a difference.

As citizen volunteers from Illinois - together with our counterpart volunteers in Sao Paulo, Brazil we work in partnership to improve the lives of people across the hemisphere.

In its 50-year history, Partners has evolved into 120 volunteer chapters linked in 60 partnerships in countries or states in Latin America and the Caribbean. Each volunteer chapter is organized as a private, nonprofit institution with by-laws and regularly-elected officers. Partnerships build cultural awareness and implement projects that improve the quality of life of others.

Partners of the Americas welcomes all individuals and organizations willing to share their skills and work toward greater international cooperation among the people of the Western Hemisphere.
