VOLUNTEER IN BALI

Volunteer programs in Bali

One of the ways to get to know a country is to volunteer, but not just any volunteer, but a different volunteer experience; where you can meet, live and feel the true essence of that place and its people. You can do this through a Volunteer in Bali, in this magnificent island of Indonesia.

Get to know this wonderful country for yourself, which also needs that time that you can dedicate to a social cause as important as this.

CHILD CARE IN BALI

We work in several kindergartens in Ubud and the surrounding towns, we will assign you according to needs and capacity. In addition, we have our own self-managed kindergarten for children aged 4-5 years, who can attend free of charge. Children are just at the beginning of their school careers and the opportunity to start learning English from such a young age will be invaluable to them in the future.

As in kindergartens all over the world, teaching is informal, as children will want to play with you more than you “teach” them. However, simply by getting them excited to come to school, by giving them a few basic English phrases such as simple greetings, you may have planted the seeds of a lifelong learning habit.

All the children will be super excited to see you and are very welcoming, in part due to the natural and genuine friendliness of the Balinese,

Please note that the Project will be closed during school holidays (June, July, August and December).

The project starts every Monday where your presentation will take place

TEACHING GIRLS AND BOYS IN BALI

With Bali’s rapidly expanding tourism industry, the demand for local English speakers has never been greater. Children may have the opportunity to learn English at school, however this is usually taught by a local Balinese teacher and therefore children never get to practice their conversation skills or listen to native English speakers. 

Balinese children are extremely eager to learn and love to teach. In this project, you will spend one to two hours each morning preparing lessons and around three hours in the afternoon teaching at a local primary or secondary school. 

You will have complete freedom to decide what you want to teach, however, there is a general curriculum that you must follow and examples of what previous participants have taught so that you can continue.

The aim of this project is to show students that learning English is fun and that they are always encouraged to be creative with their teaching methods, through games, songs, art, sports and music. 

You may want to team up with other participants, as two or three teachers in the classroom often work well to build trust and gain more control of the class.

Your role is to encourage and inspire, but the most important thing is that both teachers and students enjoy the experience.

We have all experienced good and not so good teachers and through our project we strive to achieve the contagious enthusiasm of good teachers, with the specific aim of:

  • Light the fuse of lifelong learning.
  • Enthusiastically encourage and inspire children.
  • See that each child is confident and able to articulate in spoken and written English.
  • Teach games and songs, showing that learning can be fun.
  • Design creative teaching methods and make effective lesson plans.
  • The most important thing is that both teachers and students enjoy the experience.

Please note that the Project will be closed during school holidays (June, July, August and December).
