Program Details

We are a new business started in 2019 - a management company based on Coconut Beach, Koh Rong Island, Cambodia, which means that our volunteer program is also new, but has worked well so far. We are seeking highly motivated volunteers with fresh ideas and perspectives to help us as we grow our businesses. The company is managed by myself and my business partner Steven…we have both lived in Cambodia on/off for 2 years, mainly on Koh Rong. We love living here enjoying the simple but exciting island life and love working hard to grow our businesses and give visitors unforgettable experiences. We work as a team, and make time to enjoy the paradise we live in, and we love relaxing at the end of a productive day with a drink or a few around the bonfire. We want new ideas, and people who want to help us implement them. No idea is too big or hard to accomplish when we work together as a team!


Activities & Shift

Your daily activities will include: managing our social media accounts (facebook, instagram), creating marketing materials (posters, business cards, tickets, signs). We have big projects such as creating a marketing video from drone footage, assist in building and updating websites, online advertising, and more. You will also help promote our events on the beach, inviting guests to scheduled activities such as BBQ nights, quiz nights, volleyball games, boat trips, jungle treks, fundraisers, etc. Depending on your volunteering length (2-5 weeks)...you'll likely work 5-6 days in a row, then get a day off, or two days off, as tasks get accomplished. We work hard but we play hard too :)


Rules

Our number one rule is to do the best we can in everything we do, that's all we can do. Our second rule is that common sense is better than rules. We work closely and live near our Khmer bosses, staff and community. Coconut Beach is a family beach (we don't get many kids, but there are some), but lots of couples. This means we must be respectful, drug use isn't tolerated. Of course we all enjoy beers and cocktails some nights, smoking is permitted.
