Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 15 Days (21 with extension trip)
Location: Cambodia
Total Cost: $2,050 (book with a $250 deposit)



On this volunteer challenge you will spend two weeks working on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in Cambodia. You will be challenged to step outside of your comfort zone and think creatively while immersing yourself in local culture and helping provide local children and their families a brighter future.

who can volunteer?

If you want to get experience working with children or teaching, are interested in grass-roots community development or are someone who just wants to use their skills to make a difference, the Cambodia Community Challenge is perfect for you!


what you'll be doing

You will be volunteering in one of our partner schools to teach a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum and improve education quality. You could be teaching sessions that focus on conversational English, STEM, life skills, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will engage the children and allow them to learn hands-on.  


You will also have the chance to volunteer on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more! 


weekly structure

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your volunteer days will be Monday-Friday with the weekend free to travel and explore. We recommend heading to Siem Reap to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex, an experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list!


Extending your volunteer trip

After your volunteering program you can join our optional extension trip for $800, where you'll spend a week touring some of Cambodia's most beautiful natural landscapes and important cultural sites! Your journey starts in Phnom Penh where you'll explore Toul Sleng, the Killing Fields and the Royal Palace. Next you'll head to Sen Monorom where you'll be trekking across stunning Cambodian scenery with hill tribe home stays and discovering elephants, waterfalls and much more along the way. Finally, you'll head to Kratie for a Mekong river boat trip and a chance to see Irrawaddy dolphins!
