Partners of the Americas

About Partners of the Americas

When it comes to changing the world, no one can do it alone. But all too often, the people and institutions working to solve global challenges operate in isolation, leaving community needs unmet and donor dollars underutilized.

At Partners of the Americas, our approach is different. We bring the right mix of players – volunteers, development professionals, governments, businesses, and higher education institutions – to the table in order to match resources, knowledge and passion to need. By connecting local organizations to broader funding opportunities and empowering citizens to become agents of change, we develop lasting solutions to our hemisphere’s toughest challenges, together.

It’s the simple notion of partnership, and we believe it can change everything.

Partners’ network of chapters across the Americas forms the core of our work. We also welcome individuals, organizations, and higher education institutions as members. Join the Partners community today!

Inspired by President Kennedy and founded in 1964 under the Alliance for Progress, Partners of the Americas is a 501(c) 3 non-profit, non-partisan organization with international offices in Washington, DC.


Higher Education Communications Intern

May 2016 - August 2016 Washington, DC
“I loved the welcoming office environment and opportunities to sit in on senior meetings. It was great to be able to see where my work fit into the puzzle of the nonprofit as a whole and seeing the impact I made just as an intern motivated me even further! Supervisors were also really receptive to interns and valued our ideas. I pitched article ideas and with some editing help, got them published! It was cool to walk away with a portfolio of work.”
