Become an Intern

Local Dreamers is there for ambitious students from all over the world, that are looking for an inspiring,
innovative and adventurous internship abroad, and who like to discover a new culture, language and environment.

Do your internship in Ecuador

As a student of an Intermediate Vocational School (IVS), a Higher Vocational School (HVS) or University (U), Local Dreamers is the ideal location for your social-, pedagogical-, environmental-, sports- or economical-related (graduate) internship or traineeship. You  will be guided intensively on a HVS-level by an English speaking professional. An internship at Local Dreamers is an unique opportunity to gain work experience abroad, in a completely different culture!

With Local Dreamers, you can start with your internship in Ecuador at any time during the year. The minimum duration of your stay needs to be 4 weeks. There is no maximum amount of time for your time in South-America.

Experience has shown us that the efficiency of our projects is a lot higher when its interns feel at comfort. Therefore, we put extra effort in creating a positive and relaxed working climate that feels welcoming for all.

Friendship for life

The working environment of Local Dreamers has been the source of special friendships more than once. This is because we tend to hang out and make fun together after work. You´ll get so familiar and close with your fellow volunteers that the ties you have built with them in Ecuador will often continue to exist when you return home.
