I'm heading to Thailand mid-January, so I've been looking in to various volunteer programs, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts, comments, warnings, praise that they would like to share with me about Travel2Teach. Any past/present volunteers have any to say about this company? Anyone know of any other "better" programs to look into? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks smile.gif

Hi Krisraym,

I've not heard of Travel2Teach so can offer nothing. However, check out this page. There's a load of information there about the many alternative courses. Within it you should find information on travelling/placements. Hope it's of use. Let us know what you think. thumbsup.png

Hi, I am just looking up travel2teach now... Ummm, I am not sure the website doesn't say much. I think they are probably good, but cannot say for sure.

Another option for you: If you do not find an organisation that you like please feel free to contact me. I am the Thailand agent for an Australian company called Antipodeans. I organise the homestays and volunteer work for the Australian volunteers coming here and also sometimes organise or lead other trips for them. (I also used to be a leader for Intrepid). I very much like the work as it is great for the local communities and also for the volunteers.
I would like to do more of that work, however Antipodeans can only supply me with a limited number of volunteers. So, I am happy for people like you to contact me directly and maybe I can organise things for you.

Anyway good luck. You will love Thailand as the people here are wonderful and extremely friendly and welcoming. Let me know if you don't have any luck with other organisations and you would like me to help you do some volunteering.

Thank you both for your comments, advice, and the offer to help me set up some volunteering opportunities.

As of right now I'm in contact with a very friendly, helpful, and accommodating woman who works for T2T, and it looks like I'm going to be spending somewhere around 2 months in Thailand, a month or so in Cambodia, and another month or so in Vietnam before heading back to Thailand to travel around with a friend who's teaching in Beijing this year.

I'm incredibly excited and I can hardly wait for January to roll around. If either of you, or anyone else reading this thread for that matter, has any other leads on legit teaching/volunteering gigs in Thailand please let me know. And thanks again for posting a couple of comments in my lonely-up-til-now thread.

Paul,

Thanks for all you support..

Krisraym,

Glad you've got things sorted. That's excellent news. Please let us know how things go with T2T and the rest of your experiences. It's always interesting to see how new opportunities work out.

Best of luck! thumbsup.png
