Your Campus Connection
Teaching English and sharing your culture with school children and the local community of Songkhla is the main aim of this project. For the past 8 years that the project has been running, volunteers have contributed to a positive change in the local community by helping many children and adults improve their English skills and open up to different cultures.
This year, international volunteers will keep on developing the potential of the local community, teaching and encouraging school children and local people to practice English and learn about other cultures. Volunteers themselves will have an opportunity to experience local culture closely while living in the community.
Volunteers will work as English teachers in rural primary schools. They will prepare their lessons by themselves, with some advice from the local teachers at the school. Volunteers are welcome to take creative approach and use games, songs, storytelling, dancing to engage students. Activities should focus on communication, listening and speaking. Teaching certificate is not required but motivation, creativity and enthusiasm for teaching are important.
Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months

A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In a workcamp you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
