About Program

Volunteers assist with teaching English, arts and crafts, music, and sports lessons to underprivileged children at two kindergarten schools in Da Nang city.

During the week, volunteers and a Volunteer Vietnam team member will teach approximately 16 hours per week. This involves teaching at two kindergarten schools and teaching English classes to social workers and horticulture students at the Social Support Center. When you are not working in the teaching program, you will be helping out with the other programs, such as the physiotherapy program and care program.

Volunteers are given a weekly schedule of their teaching times and activities. Volunteers will have a meeting each day with a team member to plan for the next day’s activities and to make lesson plans for teaching. Volunteer Vietnam has many teaching resources on site to help with your lesson planning. If you have experience in teaching, the Volunteer Vietnam team is always eager to hear your ideas.

Connect with real Vietnam

Last year I travelled through Asia and visited the project of Volunteer Vietnam. I was there already twice, because I liked it that much and became friends with the staff.
I went back for different reasons. I wantet to see all the lovely people I worked with and worked for again and I wanted to see the change over the last few years. The project improved a lot and also the facilities.
More about the project: They make a weekly schedule to see where and with whom you are working. We take care of orphan children, we teach English in different schools and grades, we organise activities at the social support center and promote children at the disable school. There is always a lot going on. Therefore the vietnamese staff will help you with all the tasks, so you are never by your own. Also you live in a lovely house with all the other volunteer workers.
The time I had there is priceless. I learn so much about the life and the people in Vietnam. It is a project, where your help is needed and resonable. The people are so thankful and to know that you make a difference is a pretty good feeling. If you got an idea to improve things, the staff supports you energeticly. It never felt like work, when you remember the smiling faces from the day.

Pros
  • Experience local schools and social support centers
  • Make a difference
  • Meet locals
Cons
  • You only have the weekend for exploring

teaching English to Kindergarten & Adults

I have been volunteering with this organisation for several years now & teaching conversational English to the little ones & their teachers has been a rewarding experience.It is well supported with Vietnamese volunteer staff, as well as that there is a good relationship with the teachers who are also wanting to learn or improve their English.The kindergartens are a regular feature in the program that Volunteer Vietnam run,classroom sizes average around 15-20 children .We also run a class for the teachers when time and staff permit,classes have some structure but there is plenty of space to add your own ideas

Pros
  • Well supported by Vietnamese English speaking staff.
  • Classes are approximately 1 hr long per group
  • Transport to & fro
Cons
  • Can be noisy
  • Can be hot & sweaty

First time volunteering

This was my first time to go overseas and to go volunteering. I didn't quite know what to expect, but it was an amazing experience. I feel like I have met so many amazing people and I have learned so much. Just to be here with a whole group of people who want to make the best out of everything. And the people who are working here are so helpful. I would recommend this for 100%.

Also, the director, mr Viet will help you with every question that you are having and the team are always up for helping or creating ideas outside of the time that you spend volunteering.

Pros
  • Amazing, helpful and English speaking staff
  • Many different projects
  • Close to many fun places and towns
Cons
  • Bad weather-- depends of the time of year
  • Language difficulty
  • Culture shock
