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?
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)?

Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
Point taken. From now on I'll ride a magic carpet to work.
Thai gov't requires a visa/work permit for volunteer work same as regular work so what's the point?
What orgs you come across in your searching so far?
"If you're not interested in changing where you work (and thus the student population, obviously) then a) your success at applying various and sundry teaching techniques is unlikely to have anything to do with how effective they are in general, and b) your sweeping generalizations about Thai students serve no purpose but to fuel your inertia and your feeling of being an 'insider'. Sadly (for you) few who read your sweeping generalizations will perceive it that way, but hey if it makes you feel good, knock yourself out." -zeusdogg
True in theory, in practice like most teaching here....not a problemo!!!Originally Posted by Asper
