Come and enjoy the picturesque Bali where you will help children to learn English and improve their futures. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

This rewarding project really makes a difference within the community in Tianyar, a traditional fishing village. Established in 2008, the centre is 100% run and owned by the locals, it has been developed with assistance of volunteers from around the world and is a non-profit organisation.

With the main aim of teaching English for free, the children attend our classes as well as their normal government run education. You, along with other volunteers will focus on providing a fun and enjoyable experience, where the children can further progress their English.

You will plan and teach fun and interactive lessons that develop the children’s confidence and conversational skills that will make a huge difference to those less fortunate.

Although English is taught as standard within government run schools, the lack of facilities and an old fashioned curriculum means children lack the support and resources they need.

Typical day

Our English teaching classes run from Monday to Thursday with two shifts per day. Morning classes run from 8 – 10am and the afternoon classes from 2 – 5pm.

Throughout your day you will be teaching different groups of classes, with children aged between 6 and 17 years old. Some of the activities throughout your volunteering time will include:

  • Assisting the local teachers with lessons
  • Lead your own classes  (once familiar with everything)
  • Fully plan your interactive and fun lessons
  • Get creative with arts and crafts, singing and dancing
  • Play a range of sports and games – just dont get to competitive!
  • Teach the children basic life skills and environmental awareness
  • Help with various tasks around the centre; including cleaning
