The Amazon Institute was founded on the belief that our youth can change the world. Given the opportunity to work on projects that address important issues, they are in a better position to lead social change.
The Amazon Institute’s focus is preservation of our environment and bio-diversity. Our mission is preservation through education of youth and increasing public awareness. We achieve this mission by providing at risk students opportunities to contribute to the community through our Reforestation and Save a 3-Toed Sloth programs, and let them develop projects that address important environmental and preservation issues, such as eco-tourism.
