Volunteer Frederikke Cronquist from Denmark is teaching English for tour guides in Rio de Janeiro and teaching drawing techniques for young people. Many thanks Frederikke! You make us believe that a better world is possible!
For tour guides, among other professions, learning English is essential to their work. So your help as a volunteer teacher makes all the difference in people’s lives! As a volunteer teacher, you can choose whether you prefer to teach some students or give a full class in Rio.
The best practice for volunteer teachers in Rio would be to create their own lesson plans. Often, volunteers work together, planning their English classes for future tour guides or other people who want to work with tourism.

When you feel like sharing your creativity and passion for the arts, take a trip to Rio de Janeiro as an arts and design volunteer. As Rio has already inspired many artists and musicians, you can find young talents and help them grow. During your stay, you will work with children and teenagers from the favelas of Rio, developing their artistic talents.
Working with children from various communities in Rio, your efforts will play a valuable role in helping a project desperately without resources, allowing you to absorb Rio’s artistic vibes.
Visit the arts volunteer program in Rio de Janeiro. While working in Brazil, you will know the country as no tour guide could show for you!
With the Voluntour in Thailand program we offer you the best of the two worlds: combine the volunteer work with an unforgettable holiday in Thailand. With these volunteer vacations you will have fun, explore more of the country, make friends and live some unforgettable experiences.
During four weeks you will travel to four destinations in Thailand. Upon arrival you will spend two nights in Bangkok exploring and taking in the lights of the city. Then, in the following two weeks you will work as a volunteer work at two different volunteer projects. The first volunteer experience will be caring for elephants in Surin, the second a construction project in Sanghklaburi. Finally, you will enjoy two weeks relaxing and partying with friends on a paradise island.
For the first week you will meet and work with the magnificent, gentle elephants living in the manhout village in Surin, immersing yourself in rural culture, taking part in centuries old traditions.
Find the program to volunteer with the elephants in Thailand on IKPVA’s Homepage.
Then you will move on to Sangkhlaburi, working tirelessly and improving the lives of those less fortunate by providing much needed help with vital construction projects. On our homepage, you can find more projects for construction volunteering.
Finally, we think, you deserve a break on the island of Koh Phangan, a world famous party destination with some of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine! Your final two weeks will be spent with sand between your toes, soaking up the rays by day, and fire shows, delicious cocktails and good friends by night.
All transfers and accommodations are included.
