Program overview

This program gives participants the opportunity to develop their teaching style while creating a good educational foundation for young students before they begin school. Participants will have their day split between English classes, lesson planning and leading arts and crafts or games with the students. Participants will experience both what it means to teach abroad, and work from an English curriculum, as well as how to facilitate fun, engaging games and arts and crafts for the students.

Participants are situated in the bustling Siem Reap province, five hours from the capital of Phnom Penh. Our classes are situated around the vast and famous backdrop of Siem Reap – providing a true immersion into Cambodian life. Here you will help contribute towards UN SDG #4, Quality Education by supporting local students in receiving an education and building up their confidence while thinking and expressing creativity through play outside of the classroom.

Through working with such a diverse range of students, participants will gain an insight into the education system in Cambodia, and GVI’s work with the community to increase access to quality education. They will gain in-depth training in teaching and how to lead classes and activities.


  • Gain experience in early years teaching, leadership and creating engaging and informative learning resources for young students.
