Volunteer Teaching

The volunteer teaching week allows a unique chance - and privilege - to be involved in educating kids of all ages, from kindergarten to high school. Don’t worry, you’ll have a local teacher to help you create fun activities to help the kids learn some practical English. Each day will see you build up your connection with the kids; they will be extremely keen to know all about you. Flexibility, fun and a little patience are key to your success!

The weekend is time for you to spread your wings a little if you’re up for it. We’ve equipped you with some language basics, and introduced you to the local cuisine…now let's see where that can get you! You’re free to organise any adventure you care to, or simply chill ahead of the volunteer work. We can offer advice on where to go if you need it.

The Program

No teaching experience? No problem! All you need is a good English level and a willingness to help. Dive in and assist local kids who lack opportunities to learn and practice English. Contribute to primary, secondary, or high schools in Aborlan, Palawan Island, teaching students aged 7-18. Spice up informal English classes with music, games, art, sports, and conversation exercises. Focus on practical English while making it fun and engaging!

Embrace the cultural exchange, as curious students eagerly learn about your family, country, and culture. Bring lots of pictures from home – the kids will love them!

What are the meals like?

We're all about serving up tasty veggie and non-veggie dishes, made with simple, fresh, and local ingredients. We've got your allergies covered, so no worries there. We've got you sorted with three yummy meals on weekdays, and two awesome meals on Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays.
