The Isla Mujeres Ethnographic Field School specializes in community-based projects and trains students on how to conduct ethnographic research. Located on a small Mexican Caribbean island, much of the student research is focused on community needs per their request. We also encourage students to have their research align with the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This allows for the students to not only consider their research within the context of theory and previous research or how it can impact the local community, but also how it can be of service in a much larger global effort and context. https://una-gp.org/the-sustainable-development-goals-2015-2030/
Some of our current areas of interest: Culture & Environment, Latin America & Caribbean, Medical Anthropology, Gender & Identity, History, Space & Meaning, and Economic Development. There is a wide variety of subjects for research. In the past, some students have conducted research on diabetes, body image and health, GLBT+ identity, teenage pregnancy, HIV and Dengue Fever prevention, Catholic and Maya religion, Economic Development and tourism, Sea Turtle, reef and Whale Shark conservation.

Casa de Esperanza, a non-profit in Houston, Texas.  Casa de Esperanza provides residential care to children birth through six who are in crisis due to abuse, neglect, or the effects of HIV.  Care is provided in our neighborhood by our Hands of Hope interns.  Our interns, most of whom are recent college graduates, join us for a year of service (a twelve-month full-time post-graduation internship).  We provide on-site housing (interns live with the children they are caring for) and interns join us from all over the United States to be part of our internship program.  Information about our internship may be found here:

I am writing with the hope that you may be able to share information about this internship opportunity with students in your department in the hopes that they may be interested in pursuing a service internship with our agency after graduation.

Interns in our program gain valuable experience that can be relevant to a number of fields and future career goals while simultaneously making a meaningful difference in the lives of a vulnerable group of children.

Thank you and please let me know if you should need more information.
