Human Connections’ summer and winter internship programs occur during school breaks and allow students to learn about working with a social enterprise, in sustainable development, business, marketing, tourism, hospitality and more, depending on students’ strengths and areas of study. Students collaborate on two projects while they are here, one directly with Human Connections and one with our local partners. These projects allow you to have direct impact on families and communities in this region and help our own organization grow! During the internships we also visit other areas of interest in the Riviera Nayarit, we hold educational workshops and we visit other local sustainable tourism establishments.
We pay fair wages to our local partners, visits to sustainable and responsible tourism partners and carbon offsets to neutralize emissions from the program.
Safe, comfortable accommodation (hotel or homestay), all local transportation including airport pick-ups/drop-offs, 24/7 staff support, 20 group meals, responsible tourism excursions, guided interactions with local community members, project budgets and materials, valuable professional experience, the opportunity to work with local entrepreneurs and carbon offsets.
What’s Not Included
Some meals, extra snacks, drinks, international health insurance ($95 extra), souvenirs and any shopping you do.
