Education First Cambodia welcomes volunteers -- both those living in Cambodia and those overseas.
No matter where you live, native speakers of English are needed to work directly with our students to improve their English language skills. In addition, we welcome volunteers interested in working with our Women Scholars to secure internships, scholarships or job opportunities. Because the students wake very early and often stay up quite late, it is usually easy to find a time that works for both tutor and student despite the time difference. We expect you will find the rewards of working with a student are greater than you could have imagined, and that you will soon realize why so many of us donate our time for free.
We ask a commitment of a minimum of two months and expect volunteers to abide by whatever commitment they make, both in terms of dates and the amount of time they will commit to EFC.
Unlike many volunteer programs, in-country volunteers are not required to pay EFC to volunteer. Unfortunately, we are not able to pay you, offer housing, or provide stipends – you must provide your own flights, visas, accommodation, and living expenses. But living expenses in Cambodia are low.
If you are accepted to volunteer with EFC in Cambodia, we will provide...
- Pre-arrival support
- Airport pick-up
- Orientation to the country, EFC and your placement
- Child Protection Training
- On-going support and supervision
- Memories to last a lifetime
If you would like to apply to volunteer - either from your home country or in Cambodia - please write firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your areas of interest, availability, background, experience, and as much information as you can. Please also attach a recent CV.
"I find the girls amazing, each with different skills and challenges, great life stories. I'm learning so much from them, it is a real joy."
Jim, Volunteer Tutor
"For me, the saddest thing about leaving Cambodia is that I will no longer be able to tutor the EFC students. I had the best time getting to know the students and seeing them improve."
Elisa, Volunteer Tutor
