Pan de Vida accepts interns to work with us for a period of 1 month up to 1 year. All persons interested in interning with us must fill out an application.
Interns are directly involved in helping develop our front-line projects which include but are not limited to the entrepreneurship program, hunger-relief program, summer camps, and HIT squads as well as social media campaigns, planning, home visits and logistics. The participation in the activities allow the interns get to know PDV staff and the community they serve in Quito. The experience at PDV promotes a higher level of cultural intelligence and spiritual growth. Our objective is to show the universal love of our God.
What do our Internships look like?
Interns are directly involved in helping develop our front-line projects which include but are not limited to the micro-business program, teen ministry, feeding program, summer camps, and HIT squads as well as communication, planning activities, recruiting volunteers, and logistics. You can expect at least half of your time to be spent on the front line projects working directly with our beneficiaries and half of it spent on the administrative side. We generally work with each applicant to try to tailor your experience considering both your gifts and talents as well as our ministry needs.
Fees and Requirements:
The cost of the internship depends on the length of the internship. You will be asked to raise your own support to cover your airfare, travel insurance, room and board, personal expenses, language classes, and personal travel.

Pan de Vida will find you a host home for your stay and be responsible for picking you up and dropping you off from the airport on the day of your arrival and departure.
