LOOKING FOR A SUMMER INTERNSHIP IN LATIN AMERICA?
ViviendasLeon is proud to launch its new internship program!
ViviendasLeon (VL) is an international development and education travel non-profit based in San Francisco, CA with local partners in Leon, Nicaragua. VL’s mission is to support human and economic development in the rural communities of León, Nicaragua and engage U.S. students in global citizenship. Our community projects and programs range from Agroforestry, to small business creation, to computer training, and youth development.
The internship program is designed to give academic/professional practical training to students in the United States that are interested in gaining field experience in Central America. Each intern will have a detailed description of their duties and objectives and will report weekly to the program lead staff. Interns will be accommodated in home stays in pairs and have orientation included in the first week of their internship in the Leon office.
Interns must be 17 years old or older; High School/College/Graduate students and professionals are encouraged to apply. U.S. interns will be paired up with Nicaragua interns in Leon to work together on specific projects. Interns will be expected to provide final presentations to staff about the outcomes of their internship.
