Program Description:
Alternative Peru
About: Alternative Peru, an organization that provides responsible, authentic and off-the-beaten-path travel experiences in Lima and in Peru, while encouraging sustainable tourism for the benefit of local communities.

Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will help the Alternative Peru focus on strategies on how to reach a different target client base and broaden the brand’s perception. Currently, Alternative Peru caters mostly to 40+ or others with higher budgets and a strong interest in responsible tourism and would like to reach younger travelers such as backpackers or young professionals who are traveling on a lower budget but are still interested in traveling in a responsible and sustainable way. To do so, the IIP interns will complete a marketing and bench-marking analysis within the industry and local communities. The IIP interns will also perform a financial analysis to advise the organization on how to reduce cost and pricing, to cater to this new target audience

Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in tourism, marketing, sustainability and social impact are encouraged to apply. Basic Spanish is recommended.
