In DWP, each public school is handled by two volunteers. But basically it is the same thing, volunteers are expected to teach children (mostly elementary student) about health, environment, and disaster awareness through English lesson.

But I do not have any experience teaching children/student/classes, Do I get some kind of training?

Yes, Project Child will give you the training you need before you engage with the kids.

Do I need to be in Yogyakarta to be a volunteer?

Yes, you should. Because our Sekolah Sungai and Drinking Water Program are located in Yogyakarta, so it will be easier for you if you live in Yogyakarta during your volunteering time. We also have several volunteers from Semarang, Boyolali, Solo, etc. and they do just fine.

I am not confident enough with my English, so…

It’s okay. Project Child will be your place to develop your English and confidence. We require only intermediate level of English, so if you think you are brave enough to speak English, hit that ‘Register’ button because we seek passionate people.

It is volunteering, why do you need to interview the potential volunteer?

Because we have limited quota for volunteers and we want to have a chat to know you further.

How many hours per week that PCI demands from the volunteers?

Teaching activities, building material, creating lesson plan, and having fun with the programs will take only 6 hours a week.

There are several working sites within Project Child Indonesia programs. Do I have to teach at all sites and programs?

For each program, volunteer will decide the program site by themselves according to their schedule and the program’s schedule.
