Teaching Volunteer at Buddhist Monasteries

Project Overview

Are you looking for an excellent opportunity to develop teaching skills? Teaching English to novice monks in a Buddhist monastery, you will be met with students eager to learn from you. While you’re at the monastery, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the day-to-day lifestyle of the monks gaining a unique opportunity to learn about the practices of Buddhism.

You won’t need any specific qualification to be considered for a place on the project, but you will need a good standard of English and a passion for teaching others. The monks you will be teaching range in age from children to adult. It is important that you respect their high social status and the rules that they live by. In order to be successful in your application, you will also need to be disciplined and very focused. Most volunteers will be able to stay on site but there are strict rules, for example women are not allowed to stay at the monastery past sunset. Where it is not possible for participants to stay overnight, nearby accommodation will be arranged.

 

Please Note: Projects start on a Monday, however you should arrive over the weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.

Project Itinerary

Monday to Friday

Your days will be split between teaching English to the monks and assisting with the teaching at a local school.  The actual schedule will be dependent on the monastery and local school’s timetables during your stay but you would normally be expected to spend 1-2 hours teaching at the monastery and then move onto a local school where you would work for another 1-2 hours. Although you will only be teaching for around 4 hours a day, you will be expected to spend some time preparing for your lessons and activities.
