English is highly valued in Thailand due to its potential to change lives and provide increased employment opportunities. Hua Hin is an up-and-coming tourist destination and being able to speak English is an important skill for those wanting jobs in the tourism industry.
You’ll volunteer in local schools, community centers and kindergartens , helping to teach English to students aged between 3-18 years old. Many students have little exposure to fluent English speakers, and your authority as an expert in the language makes a big difference in their ability to learn. You can help a local teacher in lessons or lead classes on your own.
This project is well suited to patient, caring volunteers who value the importance of education and want to provide opportunities that, without your help, would not exist.
During school holidays from mid-March to mid-May and in October, you’ll help in classes and English camps.
As volunteers work with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you don’t need to be a qualified teacher. However, we encourage volunteers to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course.
