Program Details

Volunteers are expected to teach English to Vietnamese students. The students may be pre-schools (3-5 years old), gradeschoolers (5-12), teens (12-18) and young adults (18-21).

Volunteers will be provided with teaching materials so that they can perform their teaching activities at their best. There will be a Vietnamese co-teacher to support them during classes.

Volunteers who does not have teaching experience are also welcome. They will be provided with necessary orientation about the ins and outs of the teaching process. A weekly forum will also be organized by our staff to enable volunteers to share their stories and experiences.

The program ideally lasts from 1 month to 12 months. However, volunteers who want to help for a short time from 1 week to 4 weeks can still register with a fee of $35 per week ($5 per day). CCHD provides accommodation and 2 meals.

Activities & Shift

Volunteers will teach five days per week for only five hours per day. The schedule as to whether to hold classes in the morning or evening will vary depending on the availability of classes.

Volunteers are not expected to stay at the teaching location after they finish their classes, so they can have a break, walk around the community or enjoy the city. We are also flexible in the schedule. We can allow volunteers to have a week of teaching break in order to travel to other places of the country and come back to do volunteer teaching again. In fact, we can arrange your trip and provide you support in planning your tour and activities during your teaching break. We can provide you information that will enable you to decrease your travel expenses and save you from having a not-so-delightful trip.
