Thailand has a long and well-deserved reputation as a country popular with tourists and travellers from all corners of the globe. However, the majority of normal Thai people benefit very little from the tourist dollars entering the country. Speaking English is now a route to better jobs and prospects and volunteering as an English teacher in Thailand can help to redress this imbalance. More Thai people will be able to benefit from the country's increasing presence in the global market and growing foreign investment. You can gain practical work experience as an English teacher in Thailand without the need for a TEFL qualification and with no previous experience of teaching. Whether you want to volunteer during your gap year, career break or as a part of an extended holiday, you will have a role to play on one of our teaching projects and your efforts will be greatly appreciated.

What we do not provide:

All volunteers should, however, be active, and be prepared for working in teaching specified project fulfilling the responsibilities.
Food: We will ensure you are provided with 3 square meals a day.
Accommodation: Local host-families are carefully selected because they are friendly, welcoming and will go out of their way to look after our volunteers. Where we can't provide host families we place our volunteers together in secure accomodation.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so there is no firm deadline for applications. Some countries and projects require at least three months to process an application, arrange for visas, and advise you properly on how to prepare. Other countries can be processed in as little as three weeks. Whenever you are thinking of traveling, we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Having more time to prepare makes it easier for you to fundraise, and for us to advise you on preparations. It also makes more options available for tailoring a program to your individual interests and preferences.
