Internship program at CEC is open all year round and it offers a valuable experience to young people interested in the environment. The program is flexible and there are multiple opportunities for different degree students. We opened the program from a holistic point of view, since we're aware that the effort to improve environmental conditions requires all kind of knowledge.

Their duties include: being an instructor for groups of children with environmental education programs, elaborating environmental education programs, being tour guides around the hacienda, translating, elaborating educational material, supporting the administration area in specific functions, collaborating with the Center's projects, supporting reforestation campaigns, visiting schools for promotion and attending conferences.

Likewise, we receive personal projects and initiatives as the volunteer's contribution to the Center.

The program lasts three months. The interns will work, most of the time, with groups of children helping out the guides, even though they collaborate in other projects as well.
