School Placement – Teach English or Computers
International volunteers help local teachers with educational projects, creating educational materials, and teaching English and computer skills. Volunteers also help teach students and staff English communication and technical skills. Volunteers with skills in the areas of art, music, dance, and sports are also encouraged to apply. Many rural and village children have rarely worked with international volunteers and are excited to exchange their cultural ways with those from other countries. Mundo Exchange offers volunteers opportunities for all age groups.
Environmental Project / Eco Projects
Volunteers help create an ecological outdoor environmental learning center in rural Isan, Thailand. Community members who have recognized the importance and need of ecological programs have contacted us and then donated land for this program. There are many Thais who now recognize the importance of learning and teaching about organic farming, global warming, floral and fauna of Thailand, reforestation and more. A volunteer in Thailand will work with Thais to set up outdoor learning stations, build necessary structures, plant seedlings and small plants, help develop compost, water conservation systems and alternative energy models. Other volunteers can create environmental materials used by schools throughout Thailand. This is an on-going project where volunteers often work outside developing earth friendly learning opportunities with their Thai hosts.
Temple Stay – Teach English to novices
If you would like to work in a local Buddhist temple we can arrange for you to help the novices with English communication skills. Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about Buddhist daily life and rituals while helping Thai monks and novices increase their English vocabulary, reading and writing skills.
Team English Teachers
School instructors who would like to help prepare lessons and exchange professional information and training with local Thai teachers are also needed in schools, colleges and universities in Thailand. Volunteers knowledgeable and interested in exchanging information about educational assessment, lesson preparation and project-based education are also deeply valued.
Computer and Information Technology Assistance
Help educational staff, businesses, and/or our Learning Centers with computer and technical learning that will make a difference in the employment skills of adults and younger students in Thailand.
