Make a positive impact ethically.

Volunteer

REACH Siem Reap offers ethical volunteer experiences for compassionate individuals from around the world to work alongside our local team in Siem Reap. Our focus is on empowering

Cambodians to drive sustainable development within their own communities, and as such, our volunteer experience is structured in a way that is non-disruptive to our curriculum or operations. We have stringent policies in place, and ongoing staff training to ensure that your time with us is not only rewarding for you, but mutually beneficial for our school and students.

The success of REACH Siem Reap relies heavily on the time, compassion and dedication of volunteers from around the world. We wholeheartedly value and admire every single person who supports our cause, without these special people, we would cease to exist.

REQUIREMENTS

One of the most important attributes for our volunteers is to have an open mind and to always act with respect towards the Cambodian culture and customs. We truly believe that in doing this, you will make the most out of your volunteer placement.

The first step in the process is to complete the application form below with as much information as possible. Our Communications Officer will then be in touch with further information on your prospective placement; if your skills and our goals align, we will then host a 1 on 1 call with you via Zoom.

Placements are not guaranteed and will strongly depend on our programs needs at the time. Prior to being approved, all volunteers will be required to provide our team with a current police check and/or working with children check. It is a requirement that all in-country volunteer also purchase and provide REACH with a copy of their travel insurance.

Volunteers at REACH are also asked to make a donation of AUD$450 towards our cause. These funds are vital in enabling us to pay our local team to sustain our programs. This one-off contribution also assists to cover the costs of coordinating your experience with us. Once your placement is accepted, you will have ongoing correspondence and support in the lead up to your arrival, and throughout your time with us in Siem Reap.

If you are unable to fund this personally, we encourage you to set-up a fundraising page and rally support from your friends and familiy. If this sounds like a suitable option, please let us know as we're here to help!

PLEASE NOTE:

With child protection being our top priority, it is essential that all volunteers provide references, current criminal background checks, adhere to our child protection policy and code of conduct.

We reserve the right to remove any volunteers, visitors and staff who act in breach of our policies.
