Our Young Leaders Need YOU

Education Transforms Lives

By supporting Young Leaders in Action, you are directly changing lives and making an impact that will last for years to come. We hope that you understand the importance of your generosity, and that each time you hear from your student, you swell with pride and purpose knowing that you are transforming the future of Nicaragua through your student. With your help, we are able to not only support school costs, but also to deliver a comprehensive program that provides academic support, character and personal development, and social and spiritual growth opportunities. In addition to individual scholarships, we are always looking for folks that want to increase their impact by getting involved with other areas of the Young Leaders in Action program.

Our Program Areas:

Academic Support
Character & Personal Development
Social & Spiritual Growth


Academic Support

The Young Leaders in Action teams work closely with schools and families to monitor and assist in the academic successes of each scholarship student. Our program leaders meet with school staff to discuss progress of students and connect students with resources as needed.
Due to the fact that school costs may be burdensome for a families, Amigos offers financial support with books, registration fees, transportation costs, school supplies and other related fees.


Character & Personal Development

We want our Young Leaders to be well-rounded students who are Bright Spots in their schools and communities. Throughout the year, our team meets with students monthly to offer workshops regarding values, communication skills, organization skills, study strategies, and everything in between.

Support in this area will help with didactic materials and resources, supplies for activities and meetings, printing costs, technology needs, and refreshments.


Social & Spiritual Growth

Jesus is at the center of everything we do with our Young Leaders. We want them to know God and to know how wonderful He has created them to be. Scripture and prayer are incorporated in everything that we do with the students, and we also take students on an annual retreat. This retreat always proves to be very impactful and gives students a chance to connect with their peers and with God.
Retreat costs are minimal for students in order to keep costs from being a barrier. Gifts in this area help us to cover lodging, food, transportation, session materials and supplies and support staff costs.
