Assisting local teachers with classes or leading your own classes and teaching English language to Vietnamese children, teenagers or adults. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

We’re looking for English-speaking volunteers from all over the world that have a passion for teaching, helping our community and a strong desire to learn as much as they can about Vietnam. 

Our volunteers' house is in Đông Anh, a rural district (huyện) of Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam. This area is mostly inhabited by low-income families that migrate to Hanoi looking for better opportunities, and volunteers are expected to teach English to those less fortunate Vietnamese students that, despite years of learning English at school, can not handle basic conversations. The students may be Pre-schools (3 to 5 years old), Gradeschoolers (5 to 12 years old), Teens (12 to 18 years old) and Young Adults (18 to 21 years old). 

Background or experience in teaching English as a foreign language is preferable but NOT REQUIRED.

Volunteers who wish to travel, have the opportunity to visit and teach in our centers in other areas, such as Quang Ninh Province (Halong Bay), Phu To Province, Bac Kan Provinc, Thai Nguyen Province and Long An Province.

Typical day

Volunteers will teach five (5) days per week for only five (5) hours per day. We are cooperating with different schools, so volunteers will be teaching in different places and different hours every day (we'll give you a weekly schedule in advance). 

Be prepared that the schedule/classes could suddenly change, have some general class games at hand to keep the kids motivated.

Free-time activities

You would always have at least two days off in a week to explore the countryside,do various tourist activities with other volunteers. Hanoi is close to tourist destinations such as Sapa, Halong Bay, Perfume Pagoda, various ancient villages as well as ancient capital Hoa Lu.

We are dedicated to give volunteers the best care since the first day they come to Vietnam to the day they leave. Come and feel the diverse beauty of Vietnam’s landscapes and the hospitality of Vietnamese people.
