Each Individual Program is customized to the specific needs of the individual and includes a customized budget and program fee. These fees are intended to provide an estimate for a typical experience.

Program fees include a service placement, lodging, meals, cultural and recreational activities, and support from Amizade’s local site directors. Programs that take place outside the US include travel, health, and evacuation insurance and transportation to and from the local airport. All fees additionally include a contribution to a community partner organization, which typically takes place through infrastructure donations, stipends for speakers, or other general operating donations. Over 80% of fees go directly to program costs. Less than 20% of fees go to administration.

Fees do not include international airfare, passport or visa costs, or immunizations.

*Program Fees in Bolivia include 2 meals per day and may not include daily transportation.

** Doctors and dentists are able to work with our community partner in Brazil for a discounted rate. Please contact us for details.

***Non-US citizens should contact us for country specific requirements, forms, and fees.

****In respect and for the protection of Amizade’s community partners, all individual volunteers are required to complete a background check before departing on an Amizade program.
