Internships

Our internship programs are designed to fully immerse participants in Amazonian ecology and cultures while offering the opportunity to collaborate with local counterparts on a variety of projects. We offer internships in different focus areas - ranging from public health to culinary arts!

We accept participants on a rolling basis throughout the year and recommend a minimum of 8 weeks, with a maximum stay up to one year. Preferred starting dates for summer 2018 are Monday, May 28. and June 18 (you will need to arrive the day before).

Our internships are located in the Napo region of Ecuador, and there are many opportunities for travel and field research outside of the region. Participants will stay with local host families during their program.
