Make a REAL difference in Indonesia with Education Support Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
Teaching volunteers should look no further than this wonderful program situated in the Tabanan region on the west coast of Bali. This breath-taking region features an abundance of terraced rice paddies, black sand beaches with fantastic surf and picturesque mountains. Locals here support themselves mainly through farming and tourism, where sound knowledge of the English language is essential for employment opportunities. This teaching program supports these wonderful, but impoverished families, enabling their children to learn the skills required to better enhance their futures. Volunteers will work to provide free English language lessons to under-privileged children at a non-profit learning center. Around 60 children, ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years attend the classes. This project is a great way for international volunteers to learn more about the Balinese people and culture, teach those in need and spend time exploring this magical location.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide free English lessons to children in the Tabanan region of Bali
- Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
- Teach creatively and create a love for learning among the children
- Expose volunteers and locals alike to different people and cultures
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
