May 9, 2018
We are looking for English-speaking volunteers (WNI/WNA acceptable) to participate in our charity program in Jakarta. This program is jointly run with ChildFund Indonesia ( for their after-school education program for underprivileged students in Indonesia. This is an ideal chance to get to know the local way of life, give back to the local community and practice Bahasa Indonesia!

Further information:
- The program will commence next academic semester ie August 2018 for an indeterminate time period
- This is for the volunteers to start introducing English language to primary school students (aged 7 - 13), once a month on Sundays for about 1-2 hours at resident houses in Lebak Bulus area
- No required minimum age or qualification other than speaking English fluently
- The volunteers don't need to commit for an entire semester
- We can provide syllabus as guideline
- We may require basic background checks before commencing, as part of our child protection measures
- All aspects of this program are charitable ie no one receives payments for the services to the children

Please contact our volunteer coordinator Ella at 0813 2680 9286 or [email protected] if you're interested. We would appreciate it if we can have your indication of interest by 15th July 2018. Thanks for your attention and have a great day!
Hi all, would like to raise your attention to this post again as we still need more volunteers and it's now a good time to sign up if you're interested! The sessions will start next month and the children are eager to start learning English!

Do call/message Ella at 0813 2680 9286 or send her an email at [email protected] with your questions or straightaway shoot us with your CV and preferred dates and time (eg weekends/morning). We don't need a detailed CV - this is part of the formality of screening process. There will be a short interview after, and if everything is alright, we'll arrange the scheduling with you and then, off you go!

The children and I are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Hi jstar, thanks for your interest! Yes it’s not listed in the website as this is a pilot program, where we recruit a number of volunteers selectively through specific channels as the need arises throughout the duration of the program.

Yes the pilot is currently only run in Jaksel, but possibly widened in other areas in the coming semesters (current semester runs till December). It’s possible to arrange other timings as long as the children are available. They are in school on weekdays and only free in the evening, and mostly free during the weekends. You may indicate your time availability and we’ll try to match it with the children’s schedule as best as possible.

Do let me know if you have any queries or concerns!
Hi guys, this is to update you that the program is still ongoing, thanks to the generous time and effort from volunteers. The children are enthusiastic and looking forward for the lessons. It was so successful that there are requests from other RWs for such classes. So we do need more volunteers! If you're interested, please send your CV to [email protected] or ask your questions to our volunteer coordinator Ella at 0813 2680 9286. We don't need elaborate CVs, but please note that there will be basic screening on all applicants (CV and interview) as part of child protection SOP.

I wanted to attach a picture of the ongoing English class, but couldn't find the button to do it here! I've posted the picture in my thread under Learning Bahasa Indonesia, if you'd like to see it.

Thanks and have a good day!
