Authentic, Life Changing Experience
Submitted by John DuPre - Clemson University | April 06, 2015
The Kalu Yala community embraced me as one of their own as soon as I began this internship. I spent three months in the Panamanian rainforest with the most passionate, giving individuals I have ever met. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm, develop and construct an entrepreneurial project of your choice alongside many other like-minded interns. You will also be pushed out of your comfort zone where you will quickly learn that being too comfortable just isn't as much fun! Your experience at Kalu Yala will propel your confidence and enthusiasm to astronomical heights. Hands down, the best decision I have ever made.
Experience Of A Lifetime

Becoming an agriculture intern for Kalu Yala was the most rewarding decision I've ever made. I worked hard, learned so much, made some life long friends and left feeling like I'd gone through a transformation. My three months in the valley changed my perspective and galvanized me to strive for a better way of living for not just myself, but for humanity. I left never being more certain about what I wanted to do with my life.
