Do you want to do something different and meaningful with your vacation this year? Would you like to travel to the exotic island of Bali and volunteer teaching English? Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. However, thousands of families in Bali still remain very poor and cannot afford to send their children to good English schools. The poor kids thus attend overcrowded and underfunded public schools where proper English education is hardly available. Without knowledge of English, they are unable to get good paying jobs or enter the lucrative tourism industry, this hindering their success in life.

In the teaching volunteer program, you will work independently or with a local teacher to teach English to local Balinese students. You will also help plan lessons and come up with creative and interesting ideas for learning. You will inspire the youngsters to achieve their dreams lead fun extracurricular activities such as games, songs and dances for the children.Your work will contribute to a bright and happy future for the underprivileged children as they use the English skills they learn to achieve success in life. You will greatly improve their chances of employment within the competitive job market. Furthermore, you will gain valuable teaching experience, create unforgettable memories with the children and feel great knowing you are making a difference in their lives.

Important Information

Volunteers below the age of 18 years will need to submit parental consent or must be accompanied by an adult guardian.

    Teaching English in a Primary School in Bali, Kuta

    Me and my friend spent 3 wonderful weeks teaching children (age 6-12) in a primary school in Bali, Kuta. During the process of our online applications everything went smoothly, we were given all the help and support that we needed. The in-country coordinator Komang was more than just a support for us, he took us to a traditional Balinese wedding, showed us the most beautiful authentic parts of Bali and was there whenever we needed him. He was also really flexible and helpful when we wanted to change our accommodation or had any other questions.
    About the teaching experience: We could choose in between two sites, Karangasem or Kuta. We chose Kuta and the school and teachers there are wonderful. They had one English teacher (Miss Surya) and we got the chance to teach alongside with her and help these wonderful, respectful and energetic children learning English. However, if you are seeking to have an authentic Balinese environment please do not go to Kuta, Karangasem is a much better option with the beautiful Mount Agung on one side and the sea on the other. I can 100 % recommend this program for anyone even if you haven't done any teachings yet.

    Working in A Kindergarten

    Last Summer I spend three weeks in Indonesia at Bali Kindergarten. This volunteering experience really made me feel that I was needed. During the program I was wishing I could spend a whole year with these children. Global Crossroad I can say is a company committed to providing volunteers a quality service. Pre-departure process was very smooth due to the staffs in USA. The Ground Coordinator was also always available to answer all my questions. The accommodation at the hostel was primitive. Everything was well organized right from the start. The food was good and was always on time. I was really impressed to see the classroom with many smiling children. The owner of the Kindergarten expressed his sincere thanks to Global Crossroad for their immense help over the years. This made me very happy because I knew I was also a part of the good work. After having traveled with other companies I can confidently say that Global Crossroad gives you your money's worth. I will strongly recommend this company to all the Philanthropists we would want to make this world a better place. This is the only way to ensure that your money gets to the people who deserve it. I have already told my mother of my experience and we have agreed to visit Bali once again and we will definitely do this again through Global Crossroad.
