Volunteer in Thailand where English is highly valued and native teachers are hard to find.
Volunteering abroad in Thailand provides an unrivaled opportunity to live and work alongside local people away from the beaten tourist trail. No experience is required just an enthusiasm to get stuck in wherever you are needed. After volunteering in Thailand, experience the hospitality and magical tropical beauty from the temples to the idyllic islands of the south.
Volunteer work in Thailand offers exciting and variety of experiences.
There are many different schools for you to get involved in, situated all over Thailand. Volunteers choose their school on arrival which allows for greater flexibility and to get a more detailed update and information from the coordinators on the schools available. Friends and small groups arriving together are placed together and where requested and wherever possible single volunteers are paired up. For a wider choice of school locations we are networked with more than a hundred schools all in need of volunteers.
Voluntary work in Thailand focuses on English teaching but as the school can often be the focal point of a community you could also find yourself helping at sports days, presenting awards at school ceremony the classroom you may find yourself teaching the alphabet, playing bingo or singing traditional English nursery rhymes with younger children. Teaching older children can be more relaxed from helping them to work in pairs using simple lessons you have prepared and all materials lesson plans and teaching guides will be provided for you. We are aware that many of our volunteers have never been in a teaching role before and we give you all the support you need throughout your stay in Thailand. English in Thailand is an exciting opportunity to discover a new culture, and help prepare Thai children for a better future.

Thailand is a wondrous kingdom, featuring Buddhist temples, exotic wildlife, and spectacular islands. Along with a fascinating history and a unique culture that includes delectable Thai food. At the end of your volunteering placement, take a boat trip through Bangkok’s Floating Market, or along the klongs, a network of canals leading off the river, and lined with dwellings opening directly on to the water. Life has changed little for those living along the klongs.
Language: English is widely understood, particularly in Bangkok, Phuket and in the South where it is almost the major commercial language although a Thai phrasebook and dictionary will be a good idea whilst on your placement.
Climate: Thailand has a tropical climate with high temperatures. The hottest month is July with the coolest temperatures falling between November-February.
