Ecuador is home to fifty-three of our Fellows, which is over half of our 2015 Cohort. They are spread out around five regions of Ecuador: Napo (North), Chimborazo (Central), Imbabura (North), and Azuay / Cañar (South). Their apprenticeship work has a strong focus around environmental conservation, health, youth development, and education.

*Please note that Re-Entry Training is an intentional space exclusively for Fellows to come together one last time as a global cohort and begin the re-assimilation process into US culture. These six days are designed for Fellows to reflect and take a breath before returning home. Therefore friends and family should plan to see Fellows after Re-Entry Training.
Regular mail takes around 2 weeks to get to Ecuador, but may take longer if it is stopped for review in Ecuadorian Customs.
General Note on Mailing: There are always risks when it comes to international mailing, as there is unfortunately never a guarantee that your mail will make it safely into the hands of your Fellow. Each country has different standards for the maximum value of the contents that are allowed through customs, as well as varying duties and fees on picking up mail on the receiving end. Therefore we strongly recommend you do not ship packages to Fellows in the field.
