Your Campus Connection
The aim of the program is to provide English language speaking environment for children to practice and improve their confidence in using a foreign language in communication.
Volunteers will be responsible for the English class and will work as the sole teacher. You will be required to make a teaching plan with lesson plans using the learning materials provided to ensure continuity in learning from the teachers before and after you.
Some students have been studying in the school for a few years and now they can communicate well with the volunteer teacher. However, most of them have difficulty speaking and understanding. That's why, the volunteer’s work should concentrate on helping students with speaking and listening.
Remember to be their friend too, having fun with them through games and exercises will make it much more rewarding for them and for you.
The timetable will be given on arrival with volunteers working 2-3 evenings per week. Working hours are from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Volunteers will work around 2-4 hours per week at the class and will use the rest of their time between other projects and classes that require voluntary assistance and planning for lessons. In summer time, volunteers can work in the class in the day time between 8:00am and 5:00pm.
Duration of the project: 2-4 weeks. Please select the dates that work best for you and submit them with your application.

Volunteers must show eagerness, the ability to maintain motivation and reliability, creativity and initiative when planning and running classes. Most importantly, volunteers need to have confidence in the classroom and time management skills to ensure an effective lesson.
There will be an orientation session on the first day of the program.
Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
