Creating a Future Where Everyone Belongs
Since it’s inception in 2002, over 800 high schools students with diverse abilities have come together to dismantle the walls that separate students from one another. Amigos are modeling the acceptance of students with visible differences and creating an atmosphere in their schools where everyone belongs.
All of our sponsorships provide your organization with the opportunity to:
- Help grow the future leaders of our community by investing in high school students that demonstrate the values of equality and social justice.
- Play a significant and pivotal role in sustaining the future success of the Amigos project.
- Receive brand-building recognition and acknowledgement from within the high school system and the greater community.
Sponsorships are available for various levels of financial support, in-kind services, donations, in memoriam, and more. Below is a listing of sponsorship options.
