Three-Week Volunteer Teaching Trip: Buriram, Thailand

Buriram, Thailand Children & Youth Development



Immerse yourself in Thai culture while supporting an English language learning program for students in Buriram! This 21-day trip includes English teaching volunteer activities as well as tours, cultural immersion, and much more.

Camp Thailand’s volunteer program also gives you an opportunity to gain your TEFL/TESOL certification online or onsite in Thailand - after earning your certificate and volunteering with Camp Thailand at its English language programs, the organization will help you find a paid English teaching placement at a Thai school, should you desire.

It is not compulsory for you to complete the TEFL certification to participate in this program, but it is offered to you as part of this program, and can be your passport to earning a living as a traveling teacher, teaching English (TEFL/TESOL) in countries all over the world.


Volunteers on this program get to make a real, meaningful, and lasting difference in the lives of young Thai students while immersing themselves and experiencing Thai culture firsthand.
