The ETIV Website and tech support position offers interns a fantastic opportunity to get hands on experience further developing the ETIV do Brasil website and supporting the NGO with tech support, while living in the tropical paradise known as Itacare, Bahia. We are very pleased with our current website, but often need to make updates to keep all of the information correct. Meanwhile, we really want to focus on improving our search engine optimization (SEO) so that when people search "Volunteer South America" or Volunteer Latin America" for example, our website can be found more easily.
The mission of ETIV do Brasil is to link international volunteers with local communities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil. We give volunteers the option to stay at our Volunteer House and add on Portuguese and Capoeira classes to their experience. ETIV can also link volunteers to discounted eco-adventure tours to visit our rivers, islands, waterfalls, hiking trails and exotic beaches during their time here.
- Knowledge about Search Engine Optimization
- Time commitment of at least 3 months
- Basic Portuguese to start, as most people in Bahia do not speak English. (Portuguese audio lessons can be shared electronically after signing-up to volunteer and intern with the NGO.)
ETIV do Brasil is located in the beautiful fishing and surfing town of Itacare, Bahia. Our mission is to connect international volunteers with local communities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil.
Low income volunteers and interns that are willing and able to dedicate at least 5 months time commitment (preferably 6) to the project may apply for a grant with the NGO to have their volunteer contribution waved. This allows low income students to receive all the benefits of interning with our NGO (including life insurance, a tour of Itacare, an induction to the NGO, training in your project, ongoing supervision and support and 24 hour emergency support) completely free of charge. However, all volunteers and interns are responsible for covering their own food, travel and accommodation expenses and everyone must pay the $67 admin fee that covers all legal documentation. ETIV do Brasil does provide a volunteer house where volunteers and interns can live at a very affordable price.
Most interns can receive university credit while interning with our NGO and some are even able to receive a University stipend or grant to help cover their expenses. We can offer ongoing support and supervision and can help organize taxi pickups, local accommodations and even Capoeira or Portuguese classes. All volunteers and interns will also receive our Pre-Departure Powerpoint, and Introduction to the NGO, a tour of Itacare and life insurance during their internship at the NGO. Interns can also earn credit as a remote/virtual Website Developer with us completely free of charge and will still receive supervision, support and an excellent reference for quality work.
These positions are perfect for someone seeking meaningful internship experience in a stunning location with a thriving Afro-Brazilian culture. Itacare is unique place where the Rainforest meets the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful beaches, jungle, coconut trees, waterfalls and wildlife abound.
