Volunteer Teacher Thailand
Volunteer Teacher Thailand (VTT) carries on the English education work of the Tsunami Volunteer Centre. It is a non-profit making service run by volunteer staff providing free English lessons to children and adults in Phang-Nga province. VTT raise the money needed to keep the service going and rely on volunteers to teach. You will also spend time at the Home & Life Centre (an orphanage for young children) working on various building activities alongside the residents.
- The volunteer group will be running English Camps in three schools during the three weeks on project. For an English Camp, the schools suspend their timetables and bring the whole school together for three days of intensive English activities. The lessons will be arranged between the school and VTT with topics taken from the schools’ curricula.
- As most of the lesson materials will be already made, the team’s role is to study the lessons, make photocopies of worksheets and devise games to support learning (e.g. team games, role play, memory games – whatever you can devise to make it fun - the more creative, the better!).
- Assist with a variety of activities required such as painting, mixing concrete and other handy jobs to help improve the orphanage.
