Special Message from Buena Onda


Customized Internships Support Guatemala’s Sustainable Future

International internships are unique professional development opportunities that display self-confidence, adaptability, and communication skills that can only be gained when immersed in a new culture. Business leaders seek these qualities in their employees, who are regularly required to operate in a global marketplace. For interns, Guatemala promises rich experiences in nonprofit, start-up, and social business areas that highlight local action with global implications.

Buena Onda’s founders come from professional education backgrounds. Every internship is created with your educational and professional development as a top priority. We work with our partners to design internships that engage your learning curve and interests. The following are examples of some past and present internship positions within the Buena Onda network.
