The ETIV Environmental Coordinator is an absolutely critical member of the ETIV team. It is the duty of the environmental coordinator to help identify ways to promote and ensure increased and sustainable environmental conservation in and around Itacaré, Brazil. Our main goal is to develop a new generation of local (Brazilian) youth leaders that will actively care for each other, their community and the environment. This project will include implementing an educational campaign with fun and interactive trainings and activities to teach children and youth how incredibly important it is to take care of our natural environment and work together to combat global climate change.

We would like to create a training manual that can be shared throughout Brazil that will begin with the basics (what is pollution and why is it bad for the environment) and then move into some local issues (the Atlantic Rainforest, the mangroves and our endangered species) to global issues (including global warming and climate change). Volunteers will also have the freedom and flexibility to also focus on a micro project of interest with the community; from recycling to organic gardening, a neighborhood cleanup and a mangrove restoration project... the possibilities are wide open!

The Coordinators must commit at least 3 months to the project and must speak intermediate Portuguese, but we also offer an Environmental Volunteer position that only requires a 1-month commitment and basic Portuguese to start.
