Volunteer Abroad in Vietnam

 
Why Volunteer in Vietnam?
Breathtaking natural beauty, exotic destinations, and rich cultural experiences await those traveling to Vietnam. The people are welcoming, the food is exceptional, and the country is ripe with adventure. This unique nation has developed rapidly over the years, and offers visitors the opportunity to experience its growth firsthand. World Endeavors volunteers in Vietnam will contribute to the further development of the country as they work alongside local organizations focused on eldercare, childcare, special education, and teaching projects within the community.
 
Program Information**
 
Live in Ho Chi Minh City
Volunteers in Vietnam live and work in Ho Chi Minh City, which lies along the Saigon River. Originally a French colony, the city has a unique fusion of European and Asian influences which can been seen through the cuisine and architecture. Volunteers can explore the museums, temples, and pagodas within Ho Chi Minh City to learn more about the ancient and more recent history of this unique country. If participants are feeling more adventurous, they can go further and explore the lush Mekong Delta, the capital city of Hanoi, or one of the many limestone islands in Ha Long Bay. Volunteers have numerous opportunities to experience the sites and culture of Vietnam.

We offer volunteer placements in Vietnam in the following fields:
 
Program Snapshot

Housing: Volunteers in Vietnam share a guesthouse house with other volunteers, where a small staff oversees the house and prepares meals. Housing accommodations are modest, safe, and clean, but may differ from Western norms in terms of space or amenities. Volunteers will share a room with other participants of the same gender, and will have shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Participants are expected to respect the guesthouse and their fellow residents and be open to the adventure of experiencing a different way of life in a new environment.

Dates: The World Endeavors Volunteer Program in Vietnam is flexible in duration. Admissions are rolling, and programs can begin on any Monday throughout the year. 

Duration: Participants can choose any duration between 2 and 12 weeks. 

Cost: See our website for program fee information
