Interns begin their time with an orientation to learn about the organization, the communities we work with, and the work they will be contributing.

Summer León Interns stay with host families in León, where they are welcomed into a new and wonderful culture. Several hours are allotted to interns for in-office work as well as several hours a week for fieldwork in Goyena, a rural town that neighbors León. After work hours, interns are free to explore the beautiful city of León. In addition, weekends are free for interns to experience Nicaragua’s breathtaking country. Spanish classes are also available for students who wish to improve their language skills.

San Francisco Interns work closely with the ViviendasLeón executive team on various projects related to organizational growth and outreach. VL is very flexible with student schedules and provides on-going mentoring and guidance. These internships are year-round and are for about 8-10 hours per week for about 2-4 months.
