To find some work in the towns, English language and basic computer skills proficiency is a significant requirement. But in Cambodia, the opportunity to learn is not available for everybody, especially, those who are poor and belong to underprivileged backgrounds. As a result, many people remain either jobless or have to struggle with an unskilled labor job profile. If you wish to help out the future generation, then you should definitely volunteer as an English Teacher and help the kids to choose a better career in the days ahead. Volunteering Solutions has effectively designed this Teaching English Program in Cambodia, which is one of the most effective ways to help and support the education system of the country.

You don’t need to have a professional degree to be a teacher here, all you need is an open mindset and the zeal to make a difference. You can teach the young ones how to communicate well and help them learn the basics of English grammar. A decent command on the language can improve the chances of getting a better-paid job for young workers, as well as expand the scope of job profiles they can venture into. And who knows, probably they’ll also help you to learn a little bit of Khmer!
Note: Volunteers joining the English Teaching Project in Cambodia will have to devote a minimum of 2 weeks for the program.

Airport Transfer
Volunteers are picked up from the Siem Reap International Airport by the local coordinator or representative. Those volunteers who are arriving overland or are already in Cambodia will be picked up from the bus station or at a meeting point decided beforehand.

Volunteers are provided accommodation in the volunteer house or in a family operated and centrally located guesthouse in Siem Reap.
The volunteer house is conveniently located in the villages near the school. The house provides volunteers with a comfortable, simple and relaxing place to live. Presently, the volunteer house can accommodate more than twenty volunteers. Rooms in the house are on shared basis. Rooms have fans. If the volunteers need any help or assistance, they can always come to the local team office, which is in the same building and literally right next door.

Participants also have the option to choose to upgrade to single private room at an additional charge at the guesthouse accommodation. In case of non-availability at the volunteer house during busy periods, participants are provided accommodation in a guesthouse.
For those participants wishing to stay at a homestay, host family accommodation is also available.

An intensive orientation will be provided by the local staff. Areas like culture, greetings, locations, transportation, safety, volunteer placements are explained during the orientation. Volunteers are given a local tour of Siem Reap city as well as welcome dinner.
