Programas Especiales in Sri Lanka

Volunteer in Bali and learn about its people and its actual culture away from the touristic resorts. Enjoy this culturally fascinating location, while you volunteer and teach children and other people in need.

 

Although Bali is part of Indonesia, it is commonly thought that it is a separate country. Its people show a wonderful mix of different Pacific Asian cultures. Its most special features are its food, strongly influenced by Hindu traditions, and Balinese dance, a delight to be experienced in this location.

 

Volunteering allows you to get some first-hand insight into the real culture that lies beyond the wealth of touristic spots like hotels or casinos. As part of Connecting Worlds, we want volunteers and interns to bring the best out of themselves while helping locals in different projects that are designed to be sustainable and responsible towards the people and the environment.

 

You can see more projects in the options above. They are updated regularly, so make sure to check on them to always find new opportunities and projects with CW Abroad.

TASA DE REGISTRO: verás que todos los programas tienen una  tasa de registro de USD 249, válida por 12 meses desde el comienzo de tu programa. Muy bien; se trata del ÚNICO ingreso que recibe Voluntarios al Mundo por la organización del mismo. No existen costos ocultos, ni comisiones, ni ninguna clase de ayuda económica que percibamos de otras organizaciones; solo trabajamos duro para mantener nuestros costos al mínimo.

¡Te invitamos a comparar precios! Comprueba por ti mismo que nuestras tarifas no solo son competitivas sino, además, mucho más bajas que las de varias otras organizaciones que ofrecen programas similares.

 

¿CUÁL ES LA FUNCIÓN DE LA TASA DE REGISTRO?

 

La tasa de registro asegura tu lugar en el programa seleccionado e incluye:

Construction and Renovation

This project involves initiatives related to constructing and renovating locations around Ubud, along with a local coordinator who guides and trains volunteers. Some tasks include carpentry, gardening, painting, but also building brick walls and laying ceramic tiles, so it is expected that volunteers are willing to work hard. It is not necessary that volunteers have prior experience in construction-related fields, but that they are in good shape and that they show dedication to ensure that the project will be successful.

Please keep in mind that the minimum duration of this project is two weeks. It also includes an extra charge of US$50 per week (except for the first week) to support the materials, logistics and supervision involved in the program. This surcharge will be included in the Program Free quoted by CW when you apply for this volunteer position.

Teaching

Bali’s growing tourism industry is currently demanding for more speakers of English, and children are the future! They learn English in school, but their possibilities of practicing actual conversation with native speakers is extremely limited, as their teachers are usually local Balinese people. As part of this program, volunteers will plan their classes for two hours in the mornings and will then teach English in the afternoon for three hours. They can choose whether to teach in elementary or secondary schools, and they will have to follow a general syllabus and may have examples of previous materials used by former volunteering teachers. However, volunteers are encouraged to be creative and enthusiastic as the main objective of this program. They can work along with other volunteers in pairs, and they will also enjoy the support of the CW Abroad local team and placement staff. Volunteers do not need special qualifications to be part of this teaching experience, but they will have the opportunity to receive some training in a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course.
