About the program

This program supports a high school for English and Tourism right in the area of Ubud, in a village called Payangan. Many families in that region live on less than $2 a day and even some teachers have had limited access to education. The typical school has 50 students per class. Very few students have computers or the internet at home. Payangan’s two main sources of income are farming and tourism. 

About the Program

It is the school's mission to provide affordable education to low income families and give students the right skills to land reasonable jobs in tourism. This project supports the school management by providing training, skilled teachers and with the building of an Eco Hotel which at the same time will serve as a training center. 

Your task field as a volunteer can range from teaching in English, Japanese, IT or hotel management, supporting the construction with renewable energy knowledge or volunteering in fundraising by marketing and promotion. You will be overwhelmed by the gratitude and hospitality of the local people and the rich culture in the area of Ubud. 

Bali Internships Child Protection Policy

Having worked closely with the children of developing communities and international volunteers since 2007 we understand the importance of protecting children from any harm or abuse. As a professional and responsible agency Bali Internships is therefore committed to ensure the safety, rights and freedom of children through effective policies and processes. All volunteers and interns have a responsibility to support the safety and protection of children.


A child refers to every person below the age of 18 years.

Child abuse refers to sexual abuse or other physical or mental harm caused to a child.

Volunteers and interns refers to every participant who was placed through Bali Internships.

Host project coordinator refers to the person in charge of the host organization, institution or company.

Equality and non-discrimination

Bali Internships is committed to enforcing a policy of non-discrimination. All children who have an interaction with volunteers or interns shall be treated and protected regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity.

Roles and Responsibilities

Each volunteer and intern is asked to arrange a copy of their criminal record in their home country. Once they arrive in Bali they will receive a copy of this Child Protection Policy and the Code of Conduct which must be understood, acknowledged and signed.

Code of Conduct for the protection of children

It is strictly prohibited to take any children outside the project site on an excursion to the beach, to the volunteer house or anywhere else, unless it is not confirmed by the host project coordinator (orphanage/ school manager or mum).
It is not permitted to bring food or presents for the children unless it is acknowledged and confirmed by the host project coordinator.
Photography and videos of children are only allowed with prior approval from the host project coordinator. No pictures or videos are permitted, which expose the vulnerability of the children in public, to shame or to belittle the children.
Posting pictures or videos online in any form has to be acknowledged by the host project coordinator.- No inappropriate physical contact is allowed which appears to be in a discriminating or sexual way.
When dealing with children, volunteers are not allowed to exert inappropriate physical force to the children.
The address or location of the host institution (orphanage, children home etc) is not to be communicated to any other person not associated with the program, the host project coordinator or Bali Internships.

Social culture visa information

To volunteer in Indonesia, you will need a social culture visa. This visa is issued to applicants who are going to Indonesia for a social/cultural visit, for example, visiting relatives or friends who live in Indonesia; visiting social organizations with the same type of activities; for exchange visits between educational institutions, carrying out research, and attending training programs in Indonesia. Social-culture visa holders are not allowed to receive any salary from the visit they do. You have to apply before your arrival in Bali at the Indonesian embassy in your home country, to be able to volunteer or do an internship legally; you do need the Social-Culture Visa. Any other visa type is not sufficient.
• Time of application: 2-3 weeks. The visa application process takes some time and due to other reasons (Indonesian holidays or strike of post employees for example) the process can be delayed. Therefore, we recommend starting the application process at the latest around 4 weeks prior to your arrival in Indonesia.
• Validity: 60 days after arrival
• Extension: can be extended up to 2 times every 60 days
• Costs: 214 Euro (3,500,000 IDR)
• Cost of extension in Bali: starting from 2,700,000 IDR (164 euro)

This guideline helps you through the visa application. Our team will later on create a Whatsapp group between your visa sponsor and us to keep all processes monitored and tracked.

Average Living expenses in Bali

Indonesia is considered to be affordable to live in. This is something you will find out quickly after your arrival in Bali. Here you will see with which additional costs you have to plan during your time in Bali.

Food: The amount of money you will spend on food depends on your eating habits. If you eat at a local warung you will spend around 2€/2.20US$ for a proper meal with drink. But if you prefer to eat western food you will spend a lot more (at least 5€/5.35US$ but probably even more).

Laundry: In our accommodation you won’t have laundry facilities. So you have to bring your laundry to a laundry service somewhere around your living area. Average laundry costs are around 0.50-1€/$ for one kilogram of laundry.

Phone Credit: In all our accommodations you will find wifi. Therefore 2GB mobile data plus some credit for calling your friends should be enough per month. This will cost you around 5€/5.25$.

Scooter Rental + Petrol: Renting a scooter will cost around 42€/45$ per month. Petrol is quite cheap in Indonesia and 1 litre will be around  0.50€/$. In practice this means that you won't need more than 4 €/$ per week for petrol unless you intend to do a bike trip around the island.

Trips: How much money you want to spend for trips to explore Bali is eventually up to you. You can minimize expenses if you spend a bit more time organizing as much as you can by yourself instead of using a travel agent or trip packages.

Surfing in Bali

Bali is a world mekka for surf adventures. Beginners, advanced and professionals will find what they are looking for for an ultimate surf experience. Many surf guides and surf schools have established in the southern part of Bali and provide various offers to learn surfing or improve your skills.


Besides surfing, scuba diving is among the top 5 activities in Bali. A breath-taking underwater world with intact reefs and unique animals awaits you. Many dive centers offer courses for non-divers or snorkelers as well. They usually suggest different itineraries for everyone's needs. Let yourself be enchanted by Bali's underwater world. 


If you don't have a PADI license, you can simply go snorkeling at reefs close to Bali's shore. You may find manta rays, colorful and intact coral reefs or even small ship wrecks. Usually, you only need to pay 1 or 2 Euros to rent snorkeling equipment and off you go. 


Rafting is also a very popular water sport activity, where you can explore Bali's stunning landscapes on rivers. Many rafting companies offer different tours for beginners as well as for advanced. 

Hiking Mount Agung & Batur

Gunung Agung and Gunung Batur are both active volcanoes in Bali. Local guides offer you hikes, where you start your hike early morning or even at night to arrive in time at the top of the mountain to enjoy the most breath-taking sunrise you have ever seen.

Volunteers participating in one of the programs in the village of Payangan, Ubud, are offered to live in an eco hotel. It took several years to raise the funds that where sufficient to built the hotel, which not now offers 8 guestrooms and a cozy atmosphere. What differentiates this hotel from others is that it is completely integrated in the nature, culture, and the society of Bali. Unlike most hotels, it uses eco-friendly methods to reduce water and electricity usage as well as effectively sorting out waste that is produced.

The hotel is located in the famous Ayung River valley of Ubud. It is a part of a high school complex and is used as a hotel management training center. Thus, high school students have the opportunity to gain practical working experience along with their theoretical education.

About the project

Bali Internships provides volunteer programs that encourage intercultural learning between local communities in Bali and both national and international visitors.

Meet your host

As a local placement agency in Bali, we are specialized in providing quality individual internships in Bali and volunteer work placement services in Bali.

How it all started

We started back in 2010 have we established and sustained a vast network of trust, support and friendship among non-profit organizations, educational institutions, companies and international volunteers and interns.

We successfully built trustful and reliable connections of existing non-profit organizations and schools all around Bali that are legally acknowledged. Each and every program has been existing and running for years to work in favor of local communities and to preserve Bali’s natural beauty.

Our core strength

We identify where the support among our host programs is needed and where your motivation, skills and background as a volunteer could favor the community development.

Our motivation

We are motivated by our belief that international volunteers will make an extraordinary experience abroad. Working on an island, that is actually economically growing and dependent from increasing tourism, but controversially also suffering from it, will have a learning effect on the social-cultural understanding of each volunteer. It is our mission to raise awareness that giving back to Bali's people and nature is gratefully respected by local communities, who offer an outstanding hospitality and cultural experience in return.
