Volunteer in Thailand Option at SEE TEFL

Chiang Mai TEFL volunteer

SEE TEFL, in partnership with the DSS Education Foundation, is now offering a new volunteer option in addition to its traditional TEFL certification course. This offers a great opportunity for new SEE TEFL graduates to gain valuable teaching experience without the pressure of a full-time work commitment. There is no additional charge for DSS volunteer placements.


Volunteer Placement

TEFL volunteer Thailand

Direct placement in one of a number of volunteer opportunities teaching underprivileged primary and secondary school students in Chiang Mai. SEE will coordinate the placement.
