We are looking for volunteers who can teach any of the following subjects in the English language:
- Cultural Studies
Alternatively, we are also looking for volunteers who are skilled in manual work in order to help maintain the learning centres and the living spaces of the volunteers.
Permanent Thai teachers
We are also looking for caring and responsible Thai citizens who are willing to live and teach in the communities. Resident teachers will be expected to teach a number of hours and be available for the children to ask questions about their schoolwork etc. and to act as mentors for the children as they develop and mature.
Teaching experience is required.
If you are interested in applying, please contact ESDC (with your contact details) and we will forward an application form and further information about the application process to you.
The typical term of volunteering can be:
- two weeks
- 1 month
- 3 months
A volunteer may have the option of extending their period of stay. We accept applications all year round. Depending on the number of applications, you will be part of a team of volunteers (between 2-6 people) and terms can begin at various dates year-round.
Qualifications: No special skills or experience is required for those wishing to volunteer with our program, although they would be an advantage. In particular, for those interested in teaching English, a TEFL qualification would be ideal. The culture in these hilltribe communities is conservative and traditional, and respect and reputation are of high importance. Since we strive to integrate with the community, volunteers in this program should take a serious approach to volunteering.
Age range: 18 years or older.
