The Mission of ETIV is to connect international volunteers with local communities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil.
One of our main goals at ETIV is to develop a new generation of local youth leaders that will actively care for each other, their community, the environment and all sentient beings. This is the main avenue by which we work to achieve our Mission (highlighted below).
However, we are also planning to get more involved in women’s empowerment work as this can also have a tremendous effect on positive, sustainable and environmentally sound development as well.
The Mission of ETIV is to connect international volunteers with local communities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil. Volunteering with ETIV is an excellent opportunity for volunteers to gain hands on experience working with an international development NGO while also exploring beautiful Itacaré; where the tropical Rain-forest (Mata Atlántica) meets the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful jungles, beaches, waterfalls, coconut trees and wildlife abound.
While ETIV is mainly focused on environmental conservation and youth development, we also link international volunteers to other local community projects to better serve both community and volunteer aspirations. ETIV is a learning organization that welcomes public discourse and fresh new ideas from everyone that engages with the organization. Consequently, it will be exciting to watch ETIV grow and evolve in the coming years with the support, creativity and insight from community members and volunteers alike.
Since we are a young organization, we are looking for innovative volunteers that will support us as we continuously improve the quality and structure of our projects.
