IMPORTANT NOTICE DUE TO COVID19
Due to the quarantine policy happening in many countries. We strive to keep the volunteering program going on.
We are opening the volunteering program once more but through online video conference. We'll have around 10 people or more as needed in the conference to talk with.
I decided to do this in order to merry people's live in their boring quarantine. If we can make their days, why not?
Moreover, it's easy task to do it online for you! We can still exchange experiences, feedbacks and life stories there. I am also welcome to see you again when countries' border are open!
In this video conference, you will:
*have 1-3 meetings a week with my students/friends.
*Each meeting will take around 60 - 90 mins. (we just want everyone take their time and enjoy the conversation)
*share about your country, culture, and other interesting facts.
*get few questions from the students/my friends.
As return, you'll get:
*a certificate of appreciation from my formal school.
*experience of knowing Indonesia and the people more.
Cut it short, let's make better world while #stayathome. Contact me NOW!
Hi there! :)
I am Abraham. But you can call me Bram for short.
Well, I live and work in a developing city namely Jember in Jawa Timur (East Java). I have been managing a private course which deals with various subjects and English as one of them.
I am also an English teacher in a formal school in my city. My course and my school have decided to start a volunteering program in August 2018 and it keeps going on ever since.
I aim for the improvement of my students' ability in English by involving volunteers in their routines. I am eager to offer the chances for volunteers to see Indonesian culture and learn how it is to be Indonesian.
Please refer to our calendar for availability.
Well read my further description below if you are interested. Looking forward to your coming! :)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Surely volunteers who help us will benefit on these things:
-Learning Bahasa Indonesia
-New teaching experience and culture sharing
-Unforgettable moment in outstanding tourism places
-Having Indonesian culinary adventure (I might also invite you to have dinner with my students, surely with Indonesian menu)
We expect volunteers who can:
- stay at least a week to two weeks
- speak English (native is preferable)
- contribute in our education with their talents, skills and knowledge
- come to my school daily (4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week) - negotiable
- meet my private students (once to three times a week) having dinner, chit chat with them etc
- we'll have a brief video calling to know you and your plans better.
