CAN I APPLY IF I AM NOT FROM THE VIETNAM?

Yes, we are very pleased to accept applications from anywhere in the world and we have a good representation of non-Vietnam volunteers, in particular from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada.

 

ARE THERE ANY AGE LIMITS?

For most of our projects there is no maximum age limit as long as you are in reasonable health for the project. Our projects have a minimum age of 18 although it is no problem to apply before you reach 18 if you will be 18 when you start the project.

 

We also have some projects that can accept families - family volunteering projects.


CAN I APPLY WITH A FRIEND / PARTNER?

Yes, we welcome friends and partners on to all our projects. In some locations it is also possible to do different projects but to live together.

 

WHEN IS BEST TO APPLY?

As long as we have availability, you can apply at any time but we do recommend applying sooner rather than later. In general it's helpful to apply at least a month in advance so that there is time to make the preparations, but we can also deal with last minute applications.

CAN YOU TAKE LAST MINUTE APPLICATIONS?

As long as there is availability, yes. We can deal with applications at very short notice, the same day that someone was flying has been arranged before, but is not advised! In general it's helpful to apply at least a month in advance so that there is time to make the preparations.

 

CAN I CONTACT AN EX-VOLUNTEER?

The best way to contact CVTD volunteers past and present is by joining CVTD's community page on Facebook. It's a great way to learn more about CVTD and your project, see lots of pictures and chat with other volunteers and the CVTD team.

 

CAN I MEET THE CVTD TEAM?

Yes, we love to have volunteers come and see us at our offices in Ha Noi, just let us know when you want to come and we can make sure we have some biscuits ready!

 

Feedback
  • I had a great time volunteering with CVTD. Had the opportunity to meet amazing people from so many countries, besides the experience to work with disable kids that was so special and definitely unforgettable in my life. I got all the support i needed and felt home during the month i spent on the project. Hope to come back one day. 

  • My experience with CVTD Vietnam was great ! Work with kids is really tiring and you have to keep your energy and enthusiasm all the time but when you see them smiling, having fun and the most important learning things from you it really worth it ! 
     

  • I had an amzing time!Definitely the place to volunteer if you are in vietnam!the girls who work there are superfriendly and make you feel at home in no time.

  • These have a great record of providing low- income families an opportunity to learn English. With so many NGOs to choose from in Vietnam, I found these follows its mission of wanting to make a difference and not skewing away from its original plan of helping others. 

  • Thanks for the good wishes and your support during my stay-I'll definitly come back if i get the chance.

  • I stayed and worked here for several weeks and had a very fun and rewarding experience. The students are great. The staff is friendly and the food is good. You'll typically have roommates from Vietnam,...

  • I really enjoyed being part CVTD Team. This has been a super great time. Children are willing to learn English which is very motivated. So classes are very pleasant. 

  • I came to CVTD , wanting to be an English teacher but I had no experience. 
    CVTD has given me the opportunity to put my training into action and teach a wide range for ages and English levels in a classroom setting.

  • I came to CVTD with the teaching experience and how I feel more confident with teaching English to all ages. I have never volunteered before so volunteering at CVTD has made me feel good and I’m glad that I got this opportunity.

  • It has been a nice experience. It is a good feeling help people who want to improve their English level and Vietnamese students are very grateful and they have made me feel very well.
