  • Description


    I am juahta but everyone calls me Joe and I am a teacher of English at English course in a small town called Binjai. It's in north Sumatra Indonesia. We need one or two volunteers to help us teach the students English. Besides helping us, the volunteers can go to some tourist resorts around here. Here are some like "Bukit lawang "(you can go see wild orang Utans here), "Tangkahan" (you can go see wild elephants here), "Berastagi" (you can go see beautiful landscapes and a volcano) and Danau Toba (Lake Toba) the largest volcanic lake in the world. that's about it.

    The volunteers will teach for 3-4 hours a day. They will teach three days a week. And when the days off they can go around the tourist resorts here, there are some great places that are not really far from our place. Bukit Lawang, it just takes about 2 hours by bus. Lake Toba, it takes about 5 hours by bus. Tangkahan, it takes about 3 hours by bus. Berastagi, it takes about 3 hours by bus. so they can take 3 or 4 days trip and that will be fun. After the trip they can come back to our place again, so when they travel to the tourist resorts here they don't have to take all the stuff, they can leave the stuff. And we will keep it safely.
