If you are looking for a gap-year or maybe considering a career, a meaningful adventure awaits you in Arútam working with conservation and development of indigenous communities.

A gap year or career break can be combined with a core volunteer experience where you gain new experiences, share your skills as a volunteer alongside the personnel of FUNDECOIPA.

Like internships we will make an individual job description and guidance throughout the stay. ‘Gappers’ and career breakers will stay with local host families and work on specific projects or areas with the organization and community.

We will provide the necessary guidance, visa assistance and support while planning the trip as well as airport pick-up in Quito and on site arrangements.

A gap year or normal career break Prices for gap-years and career breaks are 2400 USD per year plus a 150 USD setup fee.
