Volunteer with us
In respect to our community support effort, priority is given to Cambodian staff. However, if any particular set of skills is not available within our community, we will accept foreign volunteers to fulfill it.
NDCCO focuses on recruiting skilled volunteers to assist us in our ongoing development towards a sustainable organization.
We welcome people from all backgrounds over 21 years old.
Volunteering at NDCCO is an extremely rewarding experience, however, it can also be very challenging. Before you start working as a volunteer, you will be asked to sign our code of conduct.
If you are enthusiastic, committed, and have a flexible attitude everything will be fine!
We always do a background check on the volunteers. That’s part of our child protection policy. So, don’t be surprised if you are asked some questions, or for recommendations from people who know you.
At the moment, we are mostly looking for English teacher volunteers.
You will assist our Khmer teachers with the day-to-day lessons under their supervision. They will guide you into assisting and becoming involved with the students.
You will also take the lead by teaching your own lessons specifically aim at listening and speaking skills.
We encourage you to come up with games, competitions, role-play, stories about yourself, and your life at home in order to provoke curiosity, promote interaction, and engage students in fun lessons. And if you are up to it you can also set up arts, crafts, and sports activities.
We only accept volunteers with relevant experience or training in teaching English. While, obviously, you have to speak English fluently, you do not have to be a native speaker.
You must be enthusiastic, committed, and have a flexible attitude. Also showing patience and keeping a smiley face will come a great deal here in Cambodia!
