ETIV do Brasil

ETIV stands for Education Through International Volunteering and we connect international travelers with an array of meaningful volunteer opportunities to support environmental conservation and youth development in Brazil.  This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers to gain hands on experience working with an international development NGO while also exploring beautiful Bahia. Our volunteer house and office is located in the small surfing and fishing town of Itacare, Bahia — where the tropical rainforest (Mata Atlántica) meets the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful beaches, jungles, rivers, waterfalls and wildlife abound.

Volunteers work directly with ETIV and our local communities to support projects that nurture positive social and community development. We also offer Portuguese lessons and Capoeira classes so that volunteers can better understand the language and appreciate the rich culture that Bahia has to offer. In addition, ETIV can link volunteers to many of the incredible Eco-adventure tours that are available in and around Itacare.
