Pachamama Alliance is seeking an intern to support the Journeys Program, which are immersive travel experiences designed to facilitate personal transformation at the level of heart, mind, body and soul. On Journeys, we lead people to one of the most remote, biologically diverse, and spiritually potent places on the planet: the Amazon Rainforest. In addition, we also coordinate Journeys in the North in collaboration with ceremonial leaders in the high desert of New Mexico. These immersions are aimed at delivering teachings that support individuals who are actively working in service of the planet and humanity. After a Journey, participants describe a lasting feeling of tranquility and interconnectedness; newfound courage and clarity around their life, work and purpose; sustained commitments and actions that support their transformation; and a complete recalibration and attunement of body, mind and spirit.

  • Support the Journeys Team in outreach, promotion and enrollment
  • Monitor and track new Journey leads
  • Nurture relationship with enrolled Journey participants
  • Coordinate pre- and post- Journey engagement with participants
  • Integrate Journey participants with other PA programs and initiatives
  • Manage database of Journey participation and outcomes  
  • Assist development and implementation of a leadership curriculum for Journey Leaders

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work at a unique, mission-driven non-profit that is partnered with indigenous people of the Amazon to protect the rainforest, while also working toward an environmentally sustainable, socially just, spiritually fulfilling future for all.
