Service Learning

95aYachana Training Center & Yachana Foundation

The Yachana Training Center and Yachana Foundation offer unique programs in the Amazon region of Ecuador for students, service learning projects and general adult learning experiences.

The Yachana Foundation was created in 1991, the lodge in 1995. In 2013 a new lodge was built within our 2,500 acre rainforest reserve and sold in 2018.

In February 2014 the new Yachana Training Center campus started to operate within Foundation land providing non-conventional, practical education and training for youth from throughout the Amazon.

Our Geotourism and educational programs combine exploration of the rainforest with cultural and social experiences not offered anywhere else within the Amazon of Ecuador for visitors interested in Service Learning, adult learning and meaningful, interactive tourism.
