Travel to Thailand and volunteer to support local communities

Volunteer in Thailand and experience the beauty of Southeast Asia, while contributing towards the sustainable development of local communities.

Choose from volunteer projects in Thailand, such as:

  • Volunteer to teach English in Thailand at disadvantaged local schools
  • Support the early education of young children in Thailand's kindergartens
  • Protect coral reefs and other marine life, while working towards your open water diving certificate

Our volunteer opportunities in Thailand are based in Ao Nang, a resort town near Krabi. Throughout your stay, our staff will be available to provide support 24/7.

Your volunteer travel to Thailand also offers plenty of free time, so you can experience all that life in Thailand has to offer. Relax on a picture-perfect beach, visit grand temples, go island hopping, and have a taste of authentic pad thai!
