Ubud Kindergarten

Would you like to make a positive impact on the lives of young children in Ubud’s surrounding villages? Join us as we work in over 15 kindergartens, spreading the joy of learning English in a fun and informal way!

Our program not only gives you the opportunity to teach basic English to these enthusiastic children but also offers a glimpse into the authentic Balinese lifestyle. We believe that by instilling a love for learning at an early age, we can sow the seeds of a lifelong educational journey for these bright minds.

In addition to collaborating with existing kindergartens, we are proud to have our own self-run kindergarten exclusively for 4-5-year-olds, who are welcome to attend free of charge. This gives you a unique chance to witness the very beginning of their educational journey and contribute to their English language development, which will undoubtedly prove invaluable as they progress through their academic careers.

Just like in kindergartens worldwide, our teaching approach is informal and focused on creating a playful and engaging environment. While the children will be eager to play and interact with you, you’ll also introduce them to simple English phrases and greetings, igniting their curiosity and setting them on a path of lifelong learning.

Ubud Teaching

Imagine immersing yourself in the captivating setting of Pejeng, where you’ll embark on an enriching teaching program, empowering children to learn a variety of subjects in English. Get ready to make a lasting impact as you collaborate with local schools, prepare engaging lessons, and witness the students’ incredible growth firsthand.

As Bali’s tourism industry continues to flourish, the need for proficient English speakers among the locals has reached unprecedented heights. While children receive English instruction at school, it is often taught by Balinese teachers, limiting their opportunities to practice conversational skills and interact with native English speakers. This is where you come in. Balinese children possess an insatiable thirst for knowledge and are an absolute delight to teach.

Throughout the project, your mornings will be dedicated to preparing dynamic lessons, which can encompass a wide range of educational subjects or incorporate topics close to your heart. While there is a general syllabus to guide you, previous participants’ lesson plans serve as valuable examples to inspire your own creativity.

The core objective of this project is to showcase the joy of learning English, and you are encouraged to employ innovative teaching methods. Games, songs, art, sports, and music can all be powerful tools in capturing the students’ imagination. If you are new to teaching, consider teaming up with fellow participants to foster confidence and establish greater control in the classroom. The energy and enthusiasm of the students often spill over into moments of pure excitement!

Let’s dive into the daily routine that awaits you:

Monday kicks off with an early morning breakfast, followed by the preparation of your lesson plans. This crucial step allows you to tailor the content to suit the needs and interests of the children. After lunch, you’ll venture to the local school, armed with your well-prepared lessons. As the day concludes, return to the center and share your valuable feedback on your first day of teaching, reflecting on the rewarding experiences you’ve already had.

From Tuesday to Friday, your mornings will begin with a delightful breakfast, providing you with the opportunity to refine your lesson plans for the day ahead. After lunch, you’ll head to your assigned school, where eager students await your arrival. Engage them with your thoughtfully prepared lessons and partake in interactive activities. As the school day ends, you’ll return to your accommodation, where a satisfying dinner awaits, offering a moment of relaxation and reflection.

Please note that the teaching plan will be reconfirmed every Friday, allowing for any adjustments based on school activities and schedules. Your participation requires approximately 5 hours each day, with 2 hours dedicated to morning lesson preparation and 3 hours for afternoon teaching.

Ubud Construction & Renovation

If you’re passionate about making a tangible difference in communities through construction activities, then look no further. This program is tailor-made for individuals like you, eager to contribute positively and leave a lasting impact.

Our project focuses on supporting small village communities in and around Ubud, aiming to construct and renovate vital structures that are essential for their growth and development. From schools and playgrounds to public libraries, your time and effort will directly enhance the lives of local residents and improve their living conditions.

In this program, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a range of hands-on tasks, including bricklaying, carpentry, painting, tile laying, and landscaping/gardening.

It’s our recommended and preferred method of support, allowing you to focus on the impactful work ahead without the burden of carrying supplies from afar.

Please keep in mind that the program is designed to adapt to the ever-evolving needs of the local communities. Tasks may change depending on what proves most necessary and helpful at any given time.

Let’s delve into the weekly schedule that awaits you:

Monday sets the stage for the project as you begin the day with breakfast, followed by project planning alongside your assigned coordinator.

Environmental Education

If you possess a deep passion for environmental issues and crave an immersive experience intertwined with rich cultural heritage, then this project is your golden opportunity. It goes beyond a mere partnership—it becomes a profound connection with the local community, who view their environment not as a separate entity, but as an integral part of their daily lives.

Bali, renowned for its breathtaking beauty and lush greenery, has unfortunately faced adverse consequences due to rapid development and surging tourism. The sight of discarded plastic water bottles and food wrappers strewn on the ground is disheartening, especially considering that Balinese tradition relied on biodegradable banana leaves for food packaging. Recognizing the significance of the human-environment relationship deeply rooted in Balinese culture, our project aims to instill environmental education in children from a young age, imparting vital messages in a fun and dynamic manner.

Our approach emphasizes “hands-on” techniques, actively engaging children in nature and fostering collaborative work. Each morning, participants devote two hours to meticulously planning their campaigns, which they then bring to life in schools throughout the Ubud area during the afternoon sessions. Our primary focus is on primary schools in Bali, where we firmly believe that education serves as the starting point. We encourage students to work together and understand that even the smallest efforts can make a substantial impact.

Let’s dive into the weekly schedule that awaits you:

Monday, the inaugural day of your project, commences with a nourishing breakfast that fuels your mind and body for the day’s activities. Your preparations involve crafting a myriad of engaging and educational activities designed to enlighten the children about environmental preservation. After savoring a delightful lunch, you embark on your journey to the local school, eager to implement the activities you’ve diligently prepared. Upon returning from the school, take the opportunity to share your experiences and invaluable feedback regarding the program during an evening gathering at the Center. Conclude your day with a delectable dinner, savoring the flavors of Bali.

From Tuesday to Friday, the rhythm of your days echoes with purpose. Energized by breakfast, you immerse yourself in designing activities tailored for each day, carefully considering the impact they will have on the children. Once you’ve finalized the day’s agenda, it’s time to venture to the school after a fulfilling lunch. Engage with the enthusiastic children, guiding them through the activities you’ve thoughtfully crafted. As the day’s activities come to a close, return to the Center, where relaxation and reflection await.

Healthcare Education

If you possess a passion for medicine and aspire to make a difference in the healthcare field, then this program is tailor-made for you in this extraordinary location!

Our program offers two avenues for you to contribute to the healthcare development in Ubud: as a qualified medical professional or as an educator focusing on basic first-aid and personal hygiene. We recognize the diverse needs within the community, ranging from the requirement for skilled healthcare professionals to conduct health camps and dental checkups, to the vital need for individuals who can educate locals on fundamental practices like handwashing, toothbrushing, and general cleanliness. By addressing these areas, we aim to prevent avoidable health issues and the spread of communicable diseases.

Whether you are an experienced medical practitioner or simply interested in teaching basic hygiene techniques, our newly established Healthcare Education project welcomes your valuable contribution. Medical professionals who can offer guidance and expertise in shaping the project’s development are highly appreciated, although prior medical experience is not a prerequisite. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to actively engage in healthcare campaigns within local schools, emphasizing the importance of basic hygiene practices, teaching correct toothbrushing techniques, handwashing protocols, and overall personal cleanliness. These simple educational initiatives, implemented early on, have a profound impact on both immediate and future healthcare outcomes. Furthermore, for those with medical backgrounds, we can organize check-up clinics for local children and adults, greatly benefiting the community with your assistance.

Now, let’s delve into the weekly schedule that awaits you:

Monday, the inaugural day of your project, begins with a meeting alongside the Medical Officer after a satisfying breakfast. This meeting serves to familiarize you with the prevalent health issues and provide essential training on the tasks at hand. Following the meeting, you will have time to prepare for the day’s activities until lunch. After a rejuvenating meal, you will visit a local school, where you will captivate the children with your engaging activities, designed to facilitate easy learning. Once you return from the school, take the opportunity to share your feedback and experiences, wrapping up the day’s endeavors.

Throughout the week, you will dedicate approximately one to two hours each morning to lesson preparation and around two to three hours in the afternoon teaching at local elementary, high schools, or universities. The freedom is yours to decide what subjects you wish to teach, and we will provide you with examples from previous participants to help spark your creativity.

From Tuesday to Friday, the rhythm of your days harmonizes with purpose. After a delightful breakfast, you will prepare the daily activities, ensuring they are both informative and engaging.

Turtle Conservation

Welcome to the Turtle Conservation project, nestled on the picturesque island of Nusa Penida. Join forces with a dedicated local team and play your part in safeguarding Indonesia’s endangered sea turtles.

Your participation in this program will have a direct impact on protecting the turtle population of Nusa Penida. At our turtle conservation center, you’ll engage in various activities depending on the nesting season. From identifying turtle species and collecting eggs to monitoring nests and witnessing the safe journey of hatchlings to the sea, every moment will be filled with awe-inspiring experiences.

Located just a 45-minute speedboat ride away from mainland Bali, Nusa Penida offers an authentic island lifestyle. Embrace the simpler pleasures of life, as you’ll find fewer shops and attractions here, but fear not, the beautiful beach will be practically at your doorstep!

Let’s dive into the schedule:

As you arrive, you’ll be welcomed with open arms. Join your fellow participants for a delightful lunch on the beach, followed by a brief introduction to this exciting new setting. Get acquainted with Nusa Penida, learning about the local supermarket, ATM, and other essential facilities.

After a satisfying breakfast, you’ll be treated to a presentation about the Turtle Conservation project. Gain valuable insights and receive a project briefing, ensuring you’re well-versed in the dos and don’ts of the program. Then, it’s time to dive into the typical activities of the week, such as feeding the turtles, cleaning the tanks, sourcing live food for them, and maintaining the beach. In the evening, expand your knowledge about these incredible creatures through an enlightening turtle documentary.

With a nourishing breakfast to start the day, you’ll continue your dedicated work of cleaning tanks, feeding the turtles, and collecting seaweed and live food for their nourishment. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to create turtle toys and administer medicine to injured turtles if needed.

Following a delightful breakfast, you’ll resume your duties of cleaning tanks, feeding the turtles, and collecting essential elements for their well-being. Take part in crafting turtle toys and providing medical care for any injured turtles. In the evening, embrace the invigorating spirit of the beach as you engage in sports activities like volleyball, badminton, or football.

After a nourishing breakfast, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and continue the vital tasks of cleaning tanks, feeding the turtles, and collecting seaweed. You’ll also create turtle toys and offer medical assistance if required. On either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, you’ll embark on an unforgettable excursion to the breathtaking Crystal Bay, a location handpicked by your knowledgeable local coordinators.

Thursday night will be particularly special as you gather around a bonfire on the beach for a welcome and farewell dinner. It’s an ideal opportunity to bond with newcomers and bid farewell to those leaving the program.

As the week draws to a close, enjoy a delicious breakfast before feeding the turtles and seizing the extraordinary chance to release them into the sea. Please note that this opportunity is exclusively for those concluding their program this week. If you continue for another week, you’ll continue the regular activities at the turtle conservation center. For departing participants, a feedback session on the program will be held after lunch. Engage in activities like feeding the turtles, cleaning tanks, and measuring turtle growth.

There are also other exciting activities to look forward to throughout your stay, including beach cleaning initiatives, crafting garbage bins for the local area, launching a Turtles/Environment campaign, releasing rehabilitated turtles on a pristine private beach, and contributing to turtle site construction projects.
