Caras of the Americas is a non-profit organization incorporated in
Washington, D.C. and registered in Puerto Rico (see

university students with the goal of offering community service
experiences in the Americas that included educational and cultural
exchange opportunities while contributing in a meaningful way to the
communities visited.

Since its founding
Caras, has carried out international programs with the
participation of university students and professionals from the United
States and Puerto Rico.
