Projects in Cambodia

Education

The English Teaching and Teacher Training Project works to develop the English language and critical thinking skills of Cambodian students, teachers and community members to help them gain access to personal, professional, and academic opportunities.

Volunteers teach at Upper and Lower Secondary Schools, Primary Schools, and Teacher Training Centers. Volunteers co-teach with a Cambodian national teacher. This practice benefits the students and enhances the Cambodian teachers’ language capacity and builds their technical classroom skills. Volunteers share modern teaching practices, help design and deliver lessons, build communicative English language skills and introduce effective classroom management techniques.

Additionally, Volunteers work to enhance the overall learning environment in their communities. This work is accomplished in partnership with their communities and responds to the unique interests and needs in their communities. Activities often include English clubs, library development, computer literacy education, youth leadership camps, and community gardening projects.
