Partners projects are conceived, designed and implemented by the volunteer members active in each chapter. Project proposals originate in a chapter committee and usually fit our work plan and priorities agreed to by Washington State and Chilean Partners' Board members. We do not have a list of projects waiting to be "assigned" to new or interested members, but we often have projects that are in various stages of design or implementation. We are eager to 'steer' new volunteers toward existing member contacts and mutual areas of interest.

Our current project oriented committees are:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Business & Economic Development
  • Education & Social Development
  • Emergency Management & Environment
  • Health

Funding for projects comes from two major sources. First, a broad array of resources from our parent Partners of the Americas, Inc. organization are available to carry out our mission. These resources consist of grants used to fund project travel to or from Chile. Several small grants are also available to directly support project implementation (see www.partners.net for full details). Second, we have limited funds in our Washington Chapter account to supplement projects partially funded from Partners of the Americas grants or to meet priority needs when grants or other resources do not exist and we want to support a worthy project.

Examples of past successful projects are:

If you are interested in proposing or working on Partners of the Americas sponsored projects with our Chilean counterparts, we look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us at: paula.laschober@seattle.gov.
