The program

Teaching volunteers should look no further than this wonderful program situated in the Tabanan region on the west coast of Bali. This breath-taking region features an abundance of terraced rice paddies, black sand beaches with fantastic surf and picturesque mountains. Locals here support themselves mainly through farming and tourism, where sound knowledge of the English language is essential for employment opportunities. This teaching program supports these wonderful, but impoverished families, enabling their children to learn the skills required to better enhance their futures. Volunteers will work to provide free English language lessons to under-privileged children at a non-profit learning center. Around 60 children, ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years attend the classes. This project is a great way for international volunteers to learn more about the Balinese people and culture, teach those in need and spend time exploring this magical location.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English lessons to children in the Tabanan region of Bali
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Teach creatively and create a love for learning among the children
  • Expose volunteers and locals alike to different people and cultures
How you can help

Volunteers on this inspiring program will supply free English language lessons to children at a non-profit learning center. They will teach students ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years, starting at the basics and moving to writing and grammar. Four levels of English are taught by international teachers volunteering their expertise and time. Volunteers are encouraged to put their own personality into the lessons, create their own lesson plans and incorporate new learning techniques and experiences for the students. Fun and creative lessons are encouraged and well received. At the center volunteers will be supported by local staff with classes running from Monday to Thursday from 2 – 4pm, giving participants the added bonus of 3-day weekends to explore the magical island of Bali! With the knowledge and confidence to partake in conversational English with foreigners, these children will have the tools for a brighter future. It is recommended that volunteers research teaching English as a second language techniques and creative ways to do so before embarking on this epic adventure! 

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Teach English to students ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years
  • Teach other basic subject matter in English
  • Play games and run activities
  • Teach students about their own lives and where they live
