English instructors are needed to teach English to adults and children in Thai communities that do not have access to fluent English-speaking teachers. Projects include primary and secondary schools, women’s shelters, hill tribe and refugee communities and projects working with the disabled and those affected by HIV. Working alongside all the projects which have this need, Kaya can match a volunteers skills and interests to one or more project at the time to make the most of this valuable resource. As Chiang Mai becomes an increasingly popular global destination, the ability to speak English can open up many trading and job opportunities for children who do not have the means to get high-quality education and adults who have no access to education at all outside of these projects. The support of English-speaking volunteers can provide them with an invaluable skill.
To teach basic to advanced language skills to communities that are unable to receive consistent native English speakers to their school or organization. Based on your experience you may support an existing teacher or run your own classes as well as provide less formal English language practise one-on-one.
What is included:
What is not included:
English teaching skills would be an asset, but is not essential for some placements. Volunteers may express a preference for the types of groups they would prefer to work on and in many cases volunteers will work on more than one placement on different days of the week. the ability to be flexible, patient and sensitive to the needs of each group is essential.
In most cases volunteers are placed in local home-stays where they either have their own room or share with another volunteer. Usually two meals a day are provided by the home-stay family, all included in the placement fees. This way a portion of your volunteer fee goes back into the local economy, and you gain first-hand experience of true local family life.
Since you are about to volunteer in another country, we ask you to make the necessary preparations before departing. We prefer volunteers to take some small gifts to the local people. Some communities might have high a prevalence of viral diseases like malaria or yellow fever, so volunteers need to get vaccinated accordingly. Each member of Kaya staff have worked, travelled, studied or volunteered abroad, and many staff have visited and volunteered in our projects knowing firsthand the country and nature of the programme placements. Their knowledge of international travel and volunteering is invaluable, and they can give you good advice and tips to make the most of your international placement.
