The program provides you a very rewarding cultural experience in Vietnam, be part of the team to help the kids in the Summer Camp by teaching them English. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

To help improving English proficiency of the children from the age of 4-13 years old in Hanoi by using English as the main medium of instruction in the Summer Camp. Your role is important contributing to the children in Hanoi as a temporary instructor in the 4 weeks or longer. The influence you have on the kids will be of a great impact.

This program is challenging, and yet it is also very rewarding experience. As as volunteer you teach on average two to four hours a day for five days a week.  A fix-curriculum may be provided while at placement and you may have to teach either at summer camp(s) in a language centre, public kindergarten or primary school. These lovely kids are between 4-13 years old.

Under the normal circumstances, kids in Vietnam have no access to an English speaking environment. Your participation in the program provide the kids an environment to use English or get used to speaking English in a way elevating their confidence level of speaking English among themselves. Therefore you play an important role changing their world by speaking with them in English.

While volunteering you may be involved in:

  • Creating lesson plans
  • Managing English conversation and grammar exercises
  • Teaching formal English classes
  • Playing games and singing songs with the children
  • Other childcare tasks as needed
  • Outdoor activities such as sport or physical education

Typical day

Monday - Friday,  you can expect to spend between 3-4 hours teaching throughout the day, 20 hours on average a week depending on the schedule of the school(s) or centre(s) where you are placed. You will be expected to work five days a week and will have the weekends off, giving you plenty of time to go on excursions around the country or to relax and unwind.

A minimum 4 weeks, options of 4, 8 or 12 weeks maximum.

Free-time activities

During day off, volunteers have free time to relax and explore the local area or other parts of surrounding Hanoi or Northern Vietnam. There are plenty of things to do and see near Hanoi, including palaces and museums, trekking through national parks and caves, and relaxing in the city garden. For those volunteers interested in traveling further afield, there are many great destinations to choose from, including Ha Long Bay, Tam Dao National Park, Sapa and Ninh Binh which is famous for its' beautiful scenery.
