At this time, all Sacramento-Davis area students are encouraged to apply through our National Chapter. The Sacramento-Davis Chapter will not be running local operations this 2021-2022 cycle. Learn more about the National Chapter path here!



The AMIGOS Sacramento-Davis Chapter is part of a 20 Chapter Network that recruits, trains, and supports AMIGOS volunteers and families in their local community. Volunteers from the Sacramento-Davis area train together as a group before leaving for their summer experience. Our board supports volunteers with packing, pre-departure immunizations, fundraising, and overall preparation.

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