Internships /Volunteer Opportunities

in Latin America and the Caribbean

Opportunities in Latin America and the Caribbean! Some of these are paid internships, but most are volunteer positions only. Be sure to check these out carefully to be sure these are right for you. And let me know if I can help investigate a possibility with you. Send me me an email or knock on my door (Vickner 210). We can spend time together, researching these sites, and I’d be happy to help you find out more about them. Also, please let me know if I have forgotten any great opportunities.
