Program Details

We are in need of volunteers who can teach our school children foreign languages ( such as French, Spanish Mandarin, Japanese, Korean):

We would like for you to deliver a class that will cover the basics of your language:
1. Alphabets
2. Pronunciation
3. Basic sentences/grammar

We aim to peak our students' interest in foreign languages.

If you prefer to help us deliver our sports program, we would like help in officiating either in:
1. Physical education classes
2. Delivery of after-school basketball or volleyball games
3. Teach kids how to play football/futsal. This will include teaching them the mechanics of the game and basic techniques

Please note that it will be a 1.5h after-school class for the language and a 2h after-school class for sports. The volunteering hours include your preparation time for the class (approx. 2 hours).


Activities & Shift

You will be required to volunteer 15-20 hrs/week. As for the distribution of the hours, it will depend on the children's schedule. This can be easily arranged once you get here. You will definitely have the weekends off, as for the other day off, you can choose either Friday or Monday.


Should you also want a traditional farming experience, please don't be afraid to ask as the region is known for its rice fields.


Rules

1. Please respect the people around you.
2. There is a dress code inside the campus.
3. Should you prefer to stay more than 2 weeks, you are gladly welcome.
4. We can arrange for your pick-up at the bus station so long as you will be volunteering the day after the next. (We want you to rest, of course).
5. Free breakfast and lunch at the school cafeteria. You, however, are free to explore your options for dinner.
6. You will be housed in one of the rooms in a private resort. When there's no one renting it, you can enjoy the nature surrounding it.
