Volunteers assist with teaching English, arts and crafts, music, hygiene and sports to the underprivileged children at two kindergarten schools in Da Nang city.  During the week, volunteers and a Volunteer Vietnam team member will teach approximately 12 hours per week.  This involves teaching at two kindergarten schools and teaching English classes to social workers and horticulture students at the Social Support Center.  When you are not working in the teaching program, you will be helping out with the other programs, such as the physiotherapy program and care program.

Volunteers are given a weekly schedule of their teaching times and activities.  Volunteers will have a meeting each day with a team member to plan for the next day’s activities and to make lesson plans for teaching.  Volunteer Vietnam has many teaching resources on site to help with your lesson planning.  If you have experience in teaching, the Volunteer Vietnam team is always eager to hear your ideas.  If you have no experience in teaching, the Volunteer Vietnam team will show you how to write a lesson plan.  You are always accompanied by a team member in the classroom; you are never left alone to teach a class!  

Typical day

The day starts at 7.30 am with breakfast at the volunteer house.  At 8 am you will travel to your work place by car, driven by a Volunteer Vietnam team member.  You work from 8:30 am to 10:30 am.  You return to the volunteer  house for lunch around 11 am.  Your lunch time is from 11am to 2 pm.  This time is your free time to do whatever you like.  At 2 pm you will travel to your work place and finish at 4:30 pm.  Dinner is served at the volunteer house at 5 pm.  In the evening your time is free.  Some options are going out for coffee, going downtown, or getting a massage. 

The volunteer's weekly work schedule is approximately 5 hours per day from Monday to Thursday and 3 hours on Friday.

Free-time activities

During the weekday, volunteers will have some free time in the evening and this can be filled up with the following activities: 

  • Hanging out at cafes near the Green House to see the local way of life
  • Visiting the city center’s many beautiful sites, including the Dragon Bridge which breathes fire on weekend nights
  • Shopping at the local night market & sampling Vietnamese foods

  • Make the short drive down to Hoi An, a preserved port town recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Hoi An is perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway where volunteers get clothes tailor-made in the day and explore the lantern-filled city at night.
