EY-Earthwatch Ambassadors

10 years, 280+ career journeys

Since 2009, Ernst & Young LLP has collaborated with the Earthwatch Institute to implement the EY-Earthwatch Ambassadors program—a signature EY volunteer program that sends high-performing, early-career professionals from the Americas and Israel on week-long expeditions to Mexico or Peru (and Costa Rica and Brazil in the past). Organized in groups of 10, Ambassadors provide skills-based services to a local entrepreneur (at no cost to the organization) and also engage in dynamic scientific field research. Since the inception of the program, 286 Ambassadors representing 74 cities across the Americas have dedicated 22,300+ hours to local businesses and scientists.

To celebrate 10 years of EY-Earthwatch expeditions, we’d like to share 10 inspiring stories from our participants, who discuss how the program improves local communities while strengthening their careers.
