Website Developer Volunteer


The ETIV Website Developer position offers interns a fantastic opportunity to get hands on experience managing and further developing the ETIV do Brasil website, while living in the tropical paradise known as Itacare, Bahia. Knowledge about Search Engine Optimization and a time commitment of at least three months is required. In addition, all volunteers and interns must learn at least basic Portuguese to start, as most people in Bahia do not speak English. Portuguese audio lessons can be shared electronically after signing-up to volunteer and intern with the NGO.

The mission of ETIV do Brasil is to link international volunteers with local communities to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil. We give volunteers the option to stay at our Volunteer House and add on Portuguese and Capoeira classes to their experience.
