About ETIV do Brasil

ETIV do Brasil links international travelers with an array of meaningful volunteer opportunities to support environmental conservation, youth development, women’s empowerment and animal welfare in Brazil.  This 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 rainforest (Mata Atlántica) meets the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful jungles, beaches, waterfalls, coconut trees and cacao plantations abound.

Volunteers work directly with ETIV and our local communities to support projects that nurture positive social and community development. Meanwhile, we also offer eco-adventure tours and cultural education classes that directly support both the NGO as well as sustainable/eco-friendly economic development here in Brazil. We mainly contract with local tour guides, fishermen, businesses and teachers to offer these one of a kind opportunities.

Our stunning Eco-adventure tours include:

Canoeing through lush mangroves, rainforest hikes to remote beaches, island boat tours of beautiful Camamu, off-road tours to the coral reefs of breathtaking Marau, kayaking, white water rafting, paddle boarding and so much more!

 The cultural education we offer our volunteers includes:


♦  Samba/Capoeira Class

♦  Up to 90 Portuguese Audio Classes

♦  2 Portuguese Classes per week with a Professional Instructor

More about ETIV:

While ETIV is mainly focused on environmental conservation and youth development we also link international volunteers to other existing 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 very exciting to watch ETIV grow and evolve in the coming years with the support, creativity and insight from community members and volunteers alike.
