Our volunteer program is structured to adapt to each of our volunteers’ interests, hobbies, passions, and professional expertise. The best way to help is by doing what you do best!

We are always looking for volunteer help with English and science education, arts & crafts, media classes, photography, robotic legos, sewing, outdoor activities, music & dance, and bicycle repair, but we are equally open to any other workshop ideas you might have.

Please review our current classroom needs for more details, or email volunteer@theplf.org to share your volunteering ideas!

For a full overview of the program, please read our Volunteer Orientation Guide


There is no fee associated with our volunteer program.  The costs to you are those necessary for basic living needs while in Siem Reap (accommodation, meals, etc), transportation to/from school, and traveler’s insurance. We require all volunteers to have traveler’s insurance that includes medical evacuation while volunteering with us.

We know you don’t want your volunteering to take away financially from our focus on our students, so we encourage volunteers to cover the costs of materials involved in their activities, any planned excursions, snacks and whatever else you might want to do with your students.

There is no requirement to raise funds before coming, but any expenses for your time volunteering should be covered by you, and this is a great way to let your networks help you do it.
