We are passionate about developing the next generation of change makers. On our Thailand: Climate Action programme, you will inspire local students to become change makers and develop their climate awareness and relationship with nature. On this programme, you will contribute to a range of projects including:
Delivering workshops on climate change, waste management and the 5 R's.
Run practical sessions
Contribute to developing new recycling initiatives in partner schools
When you arrive in Thailand you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about Thai customs and culture, get your bearings around town, meet community partners and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’re working on.
Over four weeks weeks, you’ll work in the community Monday - Friday with your weekend free to travel and explore. Your day will usually be structured with a morning session (approx. 3 hours) after breakfast and then a session of the same length after lunch. Your afternoons and evenings will be free for you to relax or do any required planning for the next day. On this programme you’ll be primarily based in Mae Sariang, but may also spend some time in the remote hill tribe villages we work with.
On the last day, you’ll either be transported back to the airport to begin your journey home.
You may be eligible to receive funding for this programme from your University. We recommend contacting your University Go Global/International Office to find out more, or book an appointment with one of our travel experts who will be more than happy to discuss funding options with you.
To deal with the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19, we have introduced several guarantees so you can confidently book in your 2022 volunteer programme today. View more information here.
Volunteering in Thailand has been an incredible experience that’s helped me grow so much. Working at the Elephant Nature Park was physically challenging, but it was such a fun and welcoming environment. I feel really inspired knowing that what we’ve done has contributed to a much wider positive impact.Volunteer - Ellie - Thailand
