We have a strong tradition at NFO of welcoming volunteers into our projects. We offer completely free volunteer placements starting every week.
Our volunteers have to commit to a minimum of one week, although once they start most want to stay even longer!
As a volunteer you will be based in Takeo where you will assist our teachers at the village schools. This allows the teachers to split the class into ability groups and gives the children a chance to speak with native English speakers. Our volunteers also sometimes support studies at the day-care centre in Takeo and with teaching English to the local Monks. Our volunteers come from all walks of life but share enthusiasm, motivation and a drive to improve the lives of our young people. The NFO volunteer program is an important part of our success and we encourage applicants with varied experience to get involved. Volunteering with us is a great way to share your skills and learn some new ones, we look forward to welcoming you to the NFO family!
