You could also take part in research into access to water in Siem Reap. As an intern you can research healthcare topics such as the prevention of dengue fever, medical treatment, and how the health of communities may be affected by access to water.

Another main focus of this program is leading English lessons to improve education in the local community and schools. By working closely with our local partners and the Siem Reap community, you will also be contributing toward UN SDG #17, Partnerships for the Goals. 

Health & Hygiene:

The work we contribute to across the globe remains important and new measures allow our participants to continue to join our programs and continue impacting positively on their world and the communities we work with. Changes to our existing protocols have been made by our health and hygiene team to strengthen our health and hygiene protocols and ensure that international standard safeguards are in place to protect our participants, staff and host communities. Please inquire for more information on the protocols.

Increasing Employability - Pre Departure Program Training:
Our programs are not only life-changing experiences but are also designed to help participants increase their employability. We have developed a curriculum to be completed prior to arrival in the country in order to ensure that more time is dedicated to program work once you commence your volunteer program. 

Eight weeks prior to your start date, you will complete the following online courses in preparation for your in-country program:
  • PRE-DEPARTURE ORIENTATION (1 hour)
  • PROGRAM SPECIFIC TRAINING (1 - 5 hours)
  • COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COURSE (10 - 15 hours)
  • LEADERSHIP COURSE (10 - 15 hours)
  • CAREERS COURSE (10 - 15 hours)

In order to obtain a certificate for the Community Development, Leadership and Careers courses which are endorsed by the University of Richmond and UNC Charlotte, you will need to complete quizzes & assignments and will be given 4 weeks post program to submit your work. 

If you are looking to travel in less than 8 weeks from now, you will still complete the course however this will be done in country and all content will need to be downloaded before arrival. 

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Expect a busy day-to-day, including full days teaching, planning and preparing for lessons and workshops, as well as a minimum of two hours of training each week. You will work anywhere from the sprawling temple complex, including ancient sculpture and bas-reliefs, and gilded pagodas, in which local Buddhist monks are taught, to the drop-in educational facility in town centre, to our classroom situated amongst one of the most ancient and magnificent temples in Cambodia. 

  • Mondays to Fridays will be spent working with some of the most marginalized members of the Siem Reap community and supporting them to learn English as well as running workshops to raise awareness on basic hygiene and healthcare practices. 
  • The projects that we get involved in will depend on the needs of the community at that exact time, and as such, participants should be prepared to be flexible and adapt to changes in the field. 
  • As an intern you will have weekly mentor meetings and reflection sessions, you will also complete an internship project.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Spend your evenings cycling along the magnificent Mekong river and round the neighboring islands of Koh Penh and Koh Thmey or pick up freshly made coconut pancakes along the bustling riverside promenade. On weekends practice the art of getting lost in the splendor of Siem Reap’s rural beauty with its many medieval temples and stunning mosques.

Travel further afield to visit the capital city of Phnom Penh and enjoy the electric atmosphere of the bustling riverside, visit the sprawling markets or immerse yourself in the history of the Khmer Rouge with its sights and museums. Journey further south to the many spectacular islands off the southern tip of Cambodia where you can spend the weekend island hopping where you can enjoy the stunning beaches, trek through uninhabited jungle or practice snorkeling as you explore the underwater world. Travel north and you will find the 12th century temple ruins from the Khmer Empire, the famous Angkor Wat.

We also now include cultural/local experiences. These experiences will take place once every 4 weeks. 

These activities may include: 

  • Learn to cook traditional Cambodian dishes
  • Visit a 9th century temple with a tuk tuk
  • Join a chanting session with monks
  • Bike around Siem Riep's traditional countryside
  • Visit one of Siem Reap's floating villages
