BEING A VOLUNTEER AT CCF

 

Volunteers at CCF not only participate within our organisation as highly valued and respected members of our team, but also as a huge part of our development and growth framework. Working to build capacity, volunteer placements focus on sharing valuable knowledge and skills with CCF staff and students- either within a set position, project or via on-the-job training or workshops. Placements are extremely rewarding and allow volunteers a hands-on opportunity to help grow and develop the very core of our organisation. By working with CCF, volunteers assist in empowering our local staff and students to truly become, not only educated and accomplished professionals, but the future leaders of this country.


THE ROLE

CCF is about to provide swimming classes to our students. Drowning is the leading cause of death for children under 17 in Cambodia, and we want to do something about it.  We are looking to recruit confident swimmers who want to receive training and accreditation to be qualified swim teachers, who can then dedicate either a Saturday morning or afternoon to teaching our students how to swim. We are going to be providing swimming education to our students, starting with our adolescents and teens and then stretching down to the younger children until all of the 2000 students that are involved with CCF are water safe.


Activities can include:


·        Receiving free training to become a qualified swimming teacher through Austswim on 29th and 30th of September 2018
