The Yachana Foundation Volunteer and Internship Program was designed to provide people from all walks of life the unique opportunity to make a meaningful contribution toward the conservation of the Ecuadorian rainforest and the sustainable development of its indigenous and mestizo communities. Through this one of a kind experience, Yachana volunteers embark on a journey of self-discovery that gives them an insider’s view of the Amazon rainforest and a chance to contribute toward creating a world that works for everyone.
EcuaExplora and Yachana
Due to a high volume of interest from potential volunteers and interns, Yachana has joined forces with an in-country partner, EcuaExplora, in order to offer our applicants a more personalized placement service within Ecuador. EcuaExplora coordinates all pre-program aspects for our interns and volunteers, from advertising available positions all the way through to the application process, final placement and payment processing. As EcuaExplora representatives are in regular communication with Yachana’s on-site project coordinators, they can assure candidates are best matched to a project based on their skills and interests in addition to the local community’s needs.
Should your skills, availability and interests not match a current available position at Yachana, EcuaExplora can refer you to a range of similar sustainable development projects in the Amazon and throughout Ecuador that just might be the perfect fit for you!
