    Volunteering opportunities

    I am looking to join the Peace Corps and so need to put some volunteer work on my resume. Seems volunteering to fight in Iraq was not enough

    I would also like to remain in Thailand so ...

    Anyone have any ideas/opinions on the various NGOs involved here?

    Thanks,

    Red

    Somebody recently asked the same question, and I'm not sure. Lots of ads on the internet for paid jobs and expensive schools, but what if you want to work for peanuts (more than your average TEFLer)?
