Would you like to volunteer in the Amazon? If you like to create audiovisual content and graphic design, want to get to know Shipibo culture, and want to contribute to a grassroots organization, then this is the opportunity for you.
We seek interns and volunteers who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit and do not back down from a challenge. Working in the Amazon is not for the faint of heart. The weather is hot and humid, there are often many bugs and mosquitoes. River travel is not the most comfortable form of transportation, though it is the most common. You are expected to work hard, with a high level of autonomy and initiative. When staying in indigenous communities, there is no running water or flushing toilets. While you may not permanently live in a community, you might be there for lengths of time depending on your role. Flexibility and patience are also extremely important. Things happen at their own pace here in the Amazon, and patience is definitely a virtue.
That being said, the rewards of persevering and facing these challenges yield innumerable opportunities for growth and learning.
Location: Pucallpa, Peru.
This is a unique opportunity to impact the audiovisual, web, and graphic design strategy behind our work here in the Peruvian Amazon. You will work closely with the staff here to maintain the best digital and visual identity for Alianza Arkana and its programs in order to bring awareness of our campaigns and generate support for the work we do in partnership with Shipibo people. The communications intern will develop program and graphic material, digital designs, audiovisual content, and develop our social media strategy.
