Fundación Halito de Vida

Organization Overview
Fundación Halito de Vida, founded in 2002, with the mission to promote values and principles, such as inclusion, equality, and active participation within the community. The foundation has worked with the local community to create opportunities that improve the quality of life for families, through economic, spiritual, education, and social development. The foundation strives to identify needs in different social sectors, including children at risk with special health needs, under-resourced neighborhoods, and schools. The IIP intern will work in Research & Analysis and/or Monitoring & Evaluation.  

Intern Responsibilities:

1. Research and Analysis Intern 

The IIP intern will conduct a strategic analysis of key parts of the foundation in order to improve internal processes. A possible project focus would be on analyzing the volunteer system, since the organization has large and active volunteers. The intern would conduct a historical analysis of volunteer participation and training, with a review of the number of volunteers needed to guarantee an effective volunteer cycle and, in turn, to maintain day to day operation. 

Qualifications:
The ideal candidate will be interested in human resources, social work, sociology, strategy, and/or communications.
Minimum Spanish level required: Intermediate


2. Monitoring and Evaluation Intern
The IIP intern will carry out evaluations to measure the social impact of the foundation’s key projects. To carry out the project, the intern will review historical evaluation data, meet with program  directors, and develop new evaluative tools to measure indicator success. The project result will be a report with findings and recommendations for how to improve program impact.

Qualifications: 
The ideal candidate will be interested in social work, sociology, analysis, and/or strategy.
Minimum Spanish level required: Intermediate


This internship is offered in collaboration with Puentes Abroad. In the internship through Puentes, interns will undertake project-based work that is designed to directly contribute to one of the internship site’s key work areas so that they gain real experience and know-how through substantial, mission-driven work.  The internships are overseen by Puentes and are complemented by homestay housing.
