Volunteer Teaching Palawan

Project Overview

Palawan is a small island province located in the Mimaropa region of the Philippines. Spread across one large main island as well as over several smaller ones, Palawan’s landscape contains areas of heavy forest, white sand beaches, coastal plains, valley deltas and a mountain range that includes Mount Mantalingajan, one of the Philippines’ most challenging peaks.

Unfortunately, Palawan’s local communities are not always able to support their children in their education, and these children rarely get the opportunity to practice their English language skills with experienced or native speakers. Volunteer teachers on this program are therefore in an excellent position to make a valuable contribution to Palawan’s community by offering English classes to students who otherwise might not have had the chance to learn or practise the language.

The Palawan teaching program is arranged to include informal English classes that allow volunteers to run a variety of activities. These activities range across a number of areas and can include: music, games, art, sport, conversation and grammar exercises. This collection of activities helps the children to learn conversational English in a way that is both engaging and fun for them.

Volunteers will work in either a primary, secondary or high school located in Aborlan, a municipality that lies on a plain between the Sulu Sea and the mountains on Palawan Island. The students’ year groups range from grade 1 to grade 12, meaning that ages vary from as young as 7, rising to 18 in the older classes.

A project coordinator is always available on site, and local staff are present to assist volunteers and offer guidance when required.

Cultural exchange

Cultural exchange is both vital and central to the volunteer teaching program in Palawan.

There will be a number of opportunities for volunteers to share their experiences of travel, and stories from their own lives. The children that you work with will, in turn, love having the chance to educate volunteers about their own island, as well as about the wider cultures, traditions and practices unique to the Philippines and the surrounding areas.
