Teaching volunteer program – Cambodia

In Cambodia, not everyone has equal access to education, as the state education system does not cover the entire population. We collaborate with teaching volunteer programs in the cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

At times, volunteers will have the opportunity to lead their own classes for small groups of students. For the remainder of their time, they will be supporting other teachers or long-term volunteers already working at the school. The level of responsibility assigned to each volunteer will depend on their level of involvement and the duration of their commitment to the program.

Volunteers are not required to possess a teaching degree or prior teaching experience. However, since classes are conducted in English, volunteers should have a good command of the language to effectively communicate with the students. Your primary role will be assisting in the delivery of English, mathematics, and ICT classes.

Volunteers are expected to plan their lessons before teaching them. Typically, the school’s staff will provide volunteers with a guidebook that can be used for class preparation. Nevertheless, volunteers are also welcome to plan their lessons independently if they prefer.

Volunteers will be required to work at the school from Monday to Friday, dedicating 3-4 hours each day. Class times may vary, but the typical school schedule is from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM.

  • Program start date: every Monday
  • Minimum stay: two weeks

Observations: Classes do not take place on bank holidays. The dates of these bank holidays may vary, as some festivities are determined by the lunar calendar and the Khmer calendar. Generally, the bank holidays that are most likely to impact the program are as follows: 7 January (Victory Over Genocide Day), “Meak Bochea” Day (January-February), Khmer New Year (April), Visakha Bochea Day (May), Pchum Ben Festival (September-October), Independence Day (November).

Example of the program:
The People Improvement Organization” is one of the centres that we collaborate with in Cambodia. The organisation has various centres distributed around underprivileged neighbourhoods and in the outskirts of Phnom Penh. The organisation requires volunteers for two areas of work: English teaching and vocational training (ICT for students and teachers, sewing, cooking and hairdressing).

English classes are given to children aged between 4 and 18 years old. Given the lack of resources, it would be a big help if the volunteer could bring their own teaching materials.

The Center of Children’s Happiness is  another of the centres that we collaborate with in Cambodia. This orphanage provides a home and education to 120 children who were previously working in the “Steung Mean Chey” landfill site in Phnom Penh. Volunteers will contribute 3-4 hours of their time either in the morning or afternoon and will be responsible for the following activities: Assisting children with their homework, ensuring they complete it accurately, leading fun and educational activities (singing, drawing, educational games, etc.), Supporting children in maintaining their personal hygiene, Guiding children in performing their household chores, including bedroom cleaning and meal preparation, and teaching them computer and technical skills (showing them how to take photos, hairdressing techniques, etc.). – office-based work

Our volunteers will be able to validate university credits with the aim of traveling in a more responsible and economical way.

What does volunteering focused on university practices involve?

At Cooperating Volunteers, we make agreements with different universities to validate university credits with the aim of traveling in a more responsible and economical way.

The specialties we work with are extensive: medical volunteering, nursing, education, social work, psychology, physiotherapy, engineering, architecture…

The practices can be carried out in our designated destinations for this purpose, as well as in Spain.

If you choose an international destination, it’s a unique way to live an unforgettable and enriching experience, as you will have the opportunity to continue your education in another country, with a completely different culture.

Stepping out of our comfort zone and being part of the various projects at the destination will allow us to grow both personally and professionally, creating a more extensive curriculum.

And we are fully convinced that this experience will accompany you throughout your life.

You will be able to visit hospitals, schools, centers, orphanages, and participate directly and actively in the daily lives of all those people at the destination, always accompanied by other professionals willing to collaborate hand in hand with you and guide you in daily tasks.

If your university is not part of the agreement with Cooperating Volunteers, you can contact cristina@cooperatingvolunteers.com so that we can get in touch and make this experience a reality.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. 

Spending quality time with family and being able to disconnect from our hectic routines is not only enriching but also necessary.

Sometimes we forget to communicate, connect, and dedicate time to each other. Each one of us lives focused on our jobs, schools… And it’s necessary to find the opportunity to pause and take care of ourselves.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. And of course, it creates lifelong positive memories.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we suggest moving away from those ‘more superficial’ trips (which can also be fantastic), but we invite you to live this experience to bring out our most empathetic and humanitarian side.

Family volunteering gives us the opportunity to be part of a positive impact, promoting values of solidarity and social responsibility.

There are many families who choose to experience these trips focused on cooperation and direct involvement with different communities around the world, where living conditions are very different and sometimes entirely precarious.

Projects are tailored to different ages, allowing us to work together.

An incredible way to fill our suitcase with memories, learning, and knowledge.

And although stepping out of our comfort zone often feels daunting, we assure you firsthand that it’s worth it.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we accompany you throughout the entire experience, from start to finish, to make it unforgettable.


At Cooperating Volunteers, we believe it’s never too late for anything, especially for volunteering and living a unique and unforgettable experience.

There are many people, increasingly so, who opt for responsible travel that involves social work.

Accustomed to organized and mostly touristic trips, at Cooperating Volunteers, we want to advocate for a more enriching experience, one that transforms us from within and allows us to be part of the change the world needs to see.

We can adapt both the destination and the duration of our projects to fit your needs.

It’s an opportunity full of emotions that allows us to significantly contribute to different communities and their evolution. And you can participate in different areas such as education, social support, or assistance in different centers.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Sense of purpose: Provides a sense of purpose by contributing your skills and experiences to meaningful causes.
  • Emotional well-being: Reduces feelings of isolation and establishes social connections.
  • Personal development: It’s continuous learning, skill development, and discovering new activities while keeping the mind-body active.
  • Physical health: Keeping active.
  • Stress reduction: The act of helping others reduces stress and contributes to mental health.

Living this experience will undoubtedly be a before and after. 


A volunteering initiative with leadership and impact through the educational action program.

When we talk about social volunteering, we refer to all those actions and activities carried out altruistically, selflessly, and with the aim of addressing multiple problems and needs of different communities, always focused on education and self-sufficiency.

Education is essential because it provides the tools and knowledge necessary for personal, social, and economic development.

Our goal is to create self-sufficient communities and provide opportunities for the future personal development of each member. The message is not to ‘give’, but to accompany in the process of training for self-managed provision.

At Cooperating Volunteers, many of our destinations and projects embrace this type of volunteering. Some of our projects include: community programs, education, women’s empowerment…

And although they are completely different from each other, they share a single objective: progress towards a society that can embrace us all in the same way.

If you are someone who is restless, who needs to see a change in the future, volunteering is an experience tailor-made for you.
