Summer Internship

Every summer we run a volunteer-based program in the Yucatan in Mexico. We host University-age students and run various programs with their support. This is a very hands-on experience for participants that not only develop real-world job skills but also at a personal level, is very rewarding.

Our interns are based in Teabo, a small Mayan village of 7,000 people in the Yucatan Peninsula. 
Our interns help plan, organize and execute activities in collaboration with the community aimed at advancing education, preventive healthcare, environmental conservation, and entrepreneurship. Activities are developed and tailored for specific age groups including children, teenagers, and adults.
