Why PartnersConnect?

The purpose of the PartnersConnect initiative is to promote civic participation and opportunity through inter-American Collaboration. Partners of the Americas Inc. promotes inter-American collaboration through its volunteer chapter projects and development programs. The goal of PartnersConnect is to bring these networks together in order to expand our capacity to connect, serve, and change lives.  PartnersConnect is unique in that people and organizations can affiliate with both a local Chapter, student group, or program implementor and the Partners international office in Washington DC.  By affiliating locally, half of your contribution fee will go to support the local organization with which you affiliate, and half will go to support the broader Partners mission. 

We invite new people and organizations to take part by joining with this network of volunteers and implementors, and we look forward to connecting you with our network.
