Volunteer Opportunity description

This program involves teaching English to Buddhist monks. Volunteers will teach monks ranging from the age of 7 to 19. The volunteers and monks can spend a lot of time together and have fun, for example during meal times, at the weekends and in class, of course.

The monks are all friendly, very helpful and welcoming. Volunteers teach between two and four hours per day, depending on how many other volunteer teachers are there at the time. If a volunteer has expertise in other subjects, it is possible to run classes in maths, science, health etc. There are no classes at the weekend, and volunteers will have the opportunity to spend more time with the monks or may go sightseeing during their free time.

It is also possible to attend the daily puja in the morning and afternoon in order to learn about the Buddhist culture.
