Who We Are
Friends of Puerto Rico invests in opportunities and partnerships that result in educational, cultural, health, and development programs to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders in Puerto Rico. Since our beginning in 2015, we have served as a bridge to over 50 nonprofit organizations in Puerto Rico. In three years, we have created a network of over 30,000 donors. In March of 2019, we launched our social enterprise that consists of a social impact coffee, Café Ama, which is ethically grown, and freshly packed at source in Puerto Rico by a local family business. Friends of Puerto Rico is headquartered in the historic neighborhood of Georgetown.
We are seeking ambitious individuals, with go-getter personalities and a passion to make a difference, to join forces with our lean and agile team. In this role, you will have the opportunity to work side by side with our President, Angelique Sina, and the ability to find solutions for Puerto Rico’s most pressing problems in the areas of education, arts, and entrepreneurship. If you desire hands-on experience, and would like to learn about a social enterprise and an out of the ordinary non-profit organization based in the Nation’s capital, then this is the role for you.
