Yachana Training Center
The Yachana Training Center is a hotel-school providing hands-on S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs to local students. Projects include education, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy and entrepreneurialism that benefit local indigenous and mestizo youth from the Amazon region.
The center was built by hand using local materials, local labor, and was constructed within international guidelines of sustainable development. Over the past 10 years, our training center has educated over 500 students to reach their full potential and lead a life that will not only help themselves, but also give back to their communities. The on-going mission of the Yachana Training Center Hotel School is a commitment to sustainable tourism and best practices that cover environmental, social, economic and cultural aspects of lodge operations. Today, we continue to employee local staff from adjacent communities or from the Yachana Foundation educational programs, which helps to support local business practices and provides tangible benefits to the local communities.
