Schipul Launches Upgraded Website for International Nonprofit Amigos de las Americas

Connects Organization With Communities, Volunteers and Alumni Around the World

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - Schipul - The Web Marketing Co. ( has released the new, upgraded website for Amigos de las Américas (AMIGOS), Powered by the open source Drupal content management platform, the new AMIGOS website is packed with information, videos and photos that can easily be added and edited by AMIGOS staff without going through a third party.

AMIGOS is an international, non-profit organization that empowers high school and college students to develop leadership skills and increase multi-cultural understanding through training and community service in Latin America. In 46 years, AMIGOS has fielded more than 24,000 volunteers.

"We are a big, well-networked organization with chapters throughout the U.S. and needed our website to not only inform but to engage so volunteers could imagine the impact they could have on the Latin American communities we serve," said CEO Marty Sinnott. "We selected Schipul after a thorough evaluation because they understand the unique needs of nonprofits and we are pleased with the results."

AMIGOS' dynamic website makes it easy to apply to volunteer, prepare for time in the field, stay connected to the organization as alumni and donate to the organization online. Drupal also integrates the AMIGOS website with the organization's social media activities on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and Linkedin. Connecting the organization's online activities amplifies the results they deliver. For instance, last month, votes from the community helped AMIGOS win $25,000 in the Chase Community Giving Facebook Challenge.
