One of Amizade’s core values is providing community driven service, meaning that the Navajo community defines a priority project and we work with them on it. You will have the opportunity to meet Navajo community members and work together
on service projects. Volunteers often tutor Navajo school children or help improve school or community facilities. Our Navajo hosts put a high priority on your learning about Navajo life and culture and sharing this knowledge with your home community so that their way of life is better understood.
In addition to service that emphasizes learning about Navajo life and culture, you will participate in cultural and recreational activities. Activities may include visiting an open air market, cultural museums, mesa hikes, visiting nearby national landmarks, learning from local Navajo families about land use, jewelry making, or sampling traditional foods.
As no courses are required in conjunction with this program, financial aid is not available for students. The sponsoring offices will be assisting accepted applicants with fundraising opportunities.
