Our programs bring people to the Amazon to work with local farmers, individuals, associations, organizations, and government institutions and support on-going projects. We offer a variety of customized experiences, from short-term student and group programs to internships that last from one to six months.

Our goal is to foster cross-cultural communication skills, create positive local and global impact, and contribute to the preservation of local cultures and the conservation of the forest. 


After being accepted to our internships, our team of experts matches participants with a host family and one or more partner organizations. Amazon Learning customizes internship opportunities in the following areas:
