Volunteer certificate & recommendation letter
Building Community through teaching English, exchanging cultures and giving charity with VCV Vietnam. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+

At VCV we believe that education is fundamental to sustainable development, therefore our aim is to create an open and fair learning environment for all our students. At many universities in Vietnam, students learn a lot of English grammar but rarely learn to correctly engage in real conversation. Once they graduate, they have difficulties finding employment in the best paying jobs, because these jobs often require high English language skills.

VCV offers projects in  Hanoi center. Every year, hundreds of volunteers join our projects in teaching English and joining outdoor activities and make an unforgettable experience volunteering, cultural exchange, cuisine exploring and charity for homeless. We are proud of the positive impact that we have on enhancing the lives of both the volunteers and the students who learn English with us.

We are welcoming and enjoy helping Volunteers anytime in our volunteer home. Our students will become your tour guide. You will have lots of meaningful time to meet many amazing people, discovering Vietnamese culture, traditions all whilst sampling traditional Vietnamese foods. This will be a great chance for you to integrate into local people’s lives and traditions

2.      Help students practicing English with FREE activities surrounds in Hanoi.

Besides teaching students inside the class we aim to increase their confidence, conversational abilities and skills in the workplace. This is done by having a cultural exchange between volunteers and students, including kids and adults on Sundays (which are optional for volunteers to attend). We focus on activities such as free talk, picnic, team building, day trip, charity, food tour, monthly meet-up, football, clean-up etc. This is a great way to share experience, explore Vietnam and participate in cultural exchanges through the local people, foods, and customs.  It is also the perfect opportunity if you have any work experiences/skills to share with the students. They also are happy to share with your local culture.



Our teaching schedule arranges in the morning, afternoon and evening. Each of classroom is from 90 minutes or 120 minutes. However, the volunteer does not teach all these classes per day. You only have 1-3 morning classroom or/and 0-2 afternoon classrooms and/or 3-4 evening classrooms in randomly. Typically, you have 1-2 classes per day, 5 days per week and the volunteer no work more than 25 hours per week. Every week, you have 2 days off to explore Hanoi or relax. Sometime, we arrange 2-3 days off together and the volunteer is able to travel other area.

We also host an optional outing once - twice per week with the adult students to encourage casual conversation and friendships. In your spare time, you can explore the city and surround Hanoi



In our safe area, you can get almost everything you want and you also have lots of free time to explore Hanoian Cultures as well as others famous places, such as Halong Bay, Cat Ba island, Ninh Binh, Sapa, Moc Chau, Mai Chau, etc. Surrounding our area are lots of gyms, yoga center, bowling, a swimming pool, etc.

Volunteers get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is usually light — coffee, tea & bread with jams or fruit. Lunch & dinner will be served family style for all of the volunteers, together. Meals are mainly local foods like; pho, spring rolls, fried rice, curries, stir fried meats and veggies. We will also make simple dishes like pasta, so no one gets too homesick. Don’t worry, we are accommodating for vegetarians, vegans or those with food allergies.
