Bali - Teaching Volunteer

Aims & Objectives

The aim of this project is to show students that learning English is fun and you are always encouraged to be creative with your methods of teaching - through games, songs, art, sport and music. If you are new to teaching, you may wish to team up with other fellow participants, as two to three teachers in the classroom often works well with regard to confidence building and gaining greater control of the class whose enthusiasm often spills over into great excitement! Your role is to encourage and inspire, but most importantly for teachers and students alike to enjoy the experience.

We have all experienced good and not so good teachers and through our project we strive to achieve the infectious enthusiasm of good teachers, specifically aiming to
- Ignite the fuse of lifelong learning.
- Enthusiastically encourage and inspire children.
- Ensure each child is confident and is able to articulate in both spoken and written English.
- Teach games and songs, showing that learning can be fun.
- Design creative methods of teaching and make effective lesson plans.
- Most importantly for teachers and students alike to enjoy the experience

Weekly Schedule & Activities

Monday
On Monday after early morning breakfast, the lesson plans are drawn. This will consist of preparing lessons which could be on various educational subjects or something you would like to teach the children. After lunch, you would set out to the local school and teach them the lessons which you are already prepared with. Later in the evening, return back to the center to give us your feedback on your first day of teaching.

Tuesday to Friday
From Tuesday to Friday, after you complete your early morning breakfast, you can work on developing lesson plans for each day for a couple of hours. After lunch, you can then leave to your assigned school to work with the students who will be eagerly waiting for you. Once you teach them the lessons you have prepared for them and engage in a few activities, then you can return to your accommodation and have dinner. The teaching plan will be confirmed again every Friday. The program can be changed depending on the school plans and other school activities for the students. Your participation would require around 5 hours a day of your time; 2 hours preparing the lesson in the morning and 3 hours teaching in the afternoon. The teaching plan will be confirmed again every Friday. The program can be changed depending on the school plan and other school activities for students. Volunteers work around 5 hours a day.

Please note that the volunteer activities and schedule can change at any time based on the needs of the project, local conditions, the weather and unforeseen circumstances.

Evenings & Weekends
During the evenings the volunteers are generally free, and there are no program activities scheduled unless otherwise mentioned. Weekends are always free.

Optional Culture Week

This program can also include a Culture Week which is highly recommended but not mandatory - just inform your travel advisor if you wish to include it. Indonesia is one of the most interesting countries in the world for cultural learning and experiences, which means that this week is packed full of exciting adventures, cultural excursions and interactions.

During the Culture Week you will be participating in various activities to get you acquainted with the Balinese culture. You will study the Balinese language, and explore Ubud including the famous Monkey Street as well as the beautiful surrounding areas. Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, wood carving, handicrafts and performing arts, so we'll have you challenge your artistic and creative side with traditional Batik painting. Another fun thing to try out is a Balinese cooking class. Finally, you will make a traditional flower offering and offer your creation at one of the most impressive Balinese temples: The Holy Tirta Empul Temple. We take a short spiritual tour around this famous temple, bathe in holy waters and pray for good luck. Evenings during the Culture Week and the weekend after are free unless otherwise mentioned.

Public & School Holidays

The teaching program will not run during school holidays or examination periods (dates below). Instead, you can help out in the kindergarten. Please note, however, that the dates for the school holidays may change depending on the school’s plans. During the months of June, July and August, there can be fewer students in the program.

* One of the most important ceremonies for Balinese people, Galungan and Kuningan Hindu ceremony will take place between 24 September - 04 October 2024. During this time we have arranged cleaning and renovation activities at a local school for approximately 4-5 hours a day including repairing broken tables, chairs, doors, windows and other classroom items. The aim is to help create a better atmosphere for the students to learn.

** Day of Silence (Nyepi) is a Hindu ceremony reserved for self-reflection. This takes place from 06:00 on 10 March until 06:00 on 12 March 2024. On Nyepi Day, the project as well as the airport, shops and businesses are closed, and everyone must stay at home. The day before Nyepi you will take part in the preparations and the day after there is a ceremony in the morning. If participants will arrive to Bali on 10th March 2024, we recommend them to arrive before 15:00 or after 23:00 because everywhere on the island, there will be Ogoh Ogoh parades and ceremonies from 15:00-23:00. There will be heavy traffic and close roads.

Ceremonies
Besides public holidays, there are several Balinese religious culture events, known as 'ceremonies'. Please respect both the Balinese people and your coordinators during these village events that can take place at any time and are always beyond the volunteer organisation's control. There have been instances where volunteers have traveled to their program in the morning only to find out that the project is closed for the day due to a ceremony being held in that village. This is because everyone in the village is expected to attend, including the children at the teaching centers. We would greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these Balinese cultural events, and ask you to follow your coordinator's instructions in the event of one occurring on your program.

a) Please note that the volunteer organisation is not notified every time a ceremony is about to be held. Unfortunately there is no calendar for ceremonies we can refer to beforehand, also each village is slightly different.
b) The volunteer organisation always confirms that there are normal activities prior to sending you to your project, but there have been cases where volunteers were still turned away at the last minute.
c) Your coordinators will redirect you to another program if there is a ceremony at your program venue.
d) Please avoid arguing or raising your voice. Confrontation will not change the situation as the project staff are not in control of these events. Your coordinator will do their best to place you in another program that is available.

Mandatory Volunteer Requirements

Social Visa C6B
Minimum age of 18
Basic level of competency in English
Original Police clearance certificate on arrival - issued no more than 6 months before arrival

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.
