Explore and teaching in Vietnam

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionDear Volunteers,

    If you are planning to visit Vietnam and spend your time in Ha Noi (capital), the cultural and political center of the country. We would love to invite you to take part in our educational project. Here you will have the friendliest connection with people and local community, staying in our lovely place with a coffee garden, a library and an activity area.

    We warmly welcome you who are serious and willing to contribute your time, your passion and your knowledge to be apart in our project. Being our team members, you will have a real chance to gain lots of experience and fun in the most useful and meaningful way. To make things easier for volunteers, we provide visa invitation letter so that you don’t have to worry about applying and doing all the paper work to get visa from Vietnam embassy in your country.

    About us and our mission:
    We are a group of young Vietnamese who have graduated abroad. We jointly established an International Education Academy that works in providing and developing a better public education system for children and young people in Ha Noi. We focuses on developing different courses or social projects to enhance soft skills for children and young Vietnamese such as: English, social and working skills, creating social activities….

    As you can see, in this modern world, the competition of getting a job is a huge pressure for young people. Especially, Vietnamese graduates who have been taught just theory without practical learning and real skills for working in this flat world.

    Our place:
    We are placed in the city center of Ha Noi with a beautiful coffee garden, a big self-study library, an physical activity area. Our academy is not so far from Old Quarter, Hoan Kiem lake and easily to take buses to get day trip to beautiful suburban areas. The place is 10 minutes driving to the train station to go to Sapa, Cat Ba Island, 15 minutes driving to a bus station to go to Hue, Da Nang, HCM city, 40 minutes driving to the Noi Bai International Airport. Especially, the place even in the center of city but it is not too noisy and suitable for studying, relaxing.

    Be part of our Helpx program to share our passion to enrich each other's life. Besides the volunteering time, you will have the chance to enjoy the culture by participating in a lot of activities with us such as: Daily coffee with local students; Local tour at the weekends; Sports activities; Experience tour with Vietnamese volunteers; Volunteers camp, etc.
