About the program: This program will provide students from a range of majors with an opportunity to inform real, grass-roots change in impoverished communities in Ecuador. Social Entrepreneurship is one of the most effective strategies for lifting people out of poverty, and The Social Entrepreneur Corps (SE Corps) is on the cutting edge of this approach in Latin America. On this exciting eight-week internship, you will study Social Entrepreneurship theory and Spanish, and have the opportunity to live with local populations and experience the complex diversity of Ecuador’s landscapes and cultures, from the Amazon to the Andes. Following a week-long orientation, you will work directly with SE Corps field professionals to consult with small community groups and businesses throughout Ecuador seeking to lift their people out of poverty. You will not only make a tangible difference in people’s lives, but also gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become a international development professional, or a range of other careers. This program is sponsored by the School of Business and the Honors Program, in consultation with Latin American Studies, and is worth 12 credits.

Many scholarships are available:
