Is volunteer work with children in Cambodia for teenagers right for me?

This project is perfect for teenagers who enjoy working with children and want to travel at the same time.


You’ll learn more about childcare and do hands-on renovation work. You’ll also develop important personal skills, like leadership and planning. You’ll add value to your CV, and have plenty to talk about in applications and interviews.


You don’t need any experience to join, but you should be interested in working with children. You’ll have Projects Abroad supervisors with you every step of the way. If you need help, they’ll be there to guide you. 


When you aren’t working, you’ll get to travel around Cambodia with the other teenage volunteers and our staff.


This High School Special runs over fixed dates during the summer holidays, and you can join from between two to four weeks.

A teenage volunteer working with children in Cambodia gives a young child a high-five in the classroom.

Here are the activities you’ll be involved in:


Work with the children at a kindergarten, primary school, or care centre


You’ll work with the other volunteers and help make learning fun for the children. You can teach them basic English words and phrases through songs, pictures, or role play games. Or, play a football game outside and run arts and crafts lessons where they can unleash their creativity. Your supervisor will also be able to help if you need any assistance.


Help improve the schools and centres through renovation work


During your project in Cambodia, you’ll spend some time making improvements to the placement where you’ll be working. You can help with renovation work where you’ll dig and build flower beds. Or, you can help renovate the classrooms by adding a coat of paint and painting educational wall murals.


Explore Cambodia with other teenagers


On your High School Special, you’ll be working with volunteers your own age. Use this opportunity to build friendships with teenagers from around the world as you work and explore together.


After your volunteer work, you’ll get to experience Khmer culture by watching Apsara dances, talking with the locals, and eating traditional Cambodian cuisine. Your supervisors will also take you to explore the magnificent Angkor Temples, historical museums, and Buddhist temples.


Where will I be working in Cambodia?

Phnom Penh

You’ll live and work in the beautiful capital city of Phnom Penh. Even with Cambodia’s history of war, the city is rapidly developing to keep up with an expanding population and growing tourism industry. There is much to see and do in Phnom Penh, and we’ll show you as much as possible when you’re there.


As a volunteer, you’ll work at a kindergarten, primary, school, or a care centre in the more rural areas of Phnom Penh. Many of the placements are overcrowded. With your support, the local teachers will be able to provide the children with more individualised attention.

What are the aims and impact of this project?

The aim of this project is help disadvantaged Cambodian children learn through play and support local teachers. We also aim to give teenagers the chance to learn about a different country and culture. 


With Cambodia’s harrowing history of war and genocide, many communities have yet to recover. Although Phnom Penh is rapidly developing, many people still live in poverty and are unable to afford a basic education.


By working with children and encouraging them to learn, you’ll be building a solid educational foundation that will benefit them later in life. This also helps children at kindergartens learn the skills they’ll need to thrive when they start the first grade.


Along with our partner, the Khemara Organisation, and other NGOs, we are working to improve the standard of care and learning the children receive. We support the schools and care centres run by our partners, both financially and by sending volunteers to help. The care centres also provide opportunities for the children’s parents to focus on work without worrying about their children.


Do community volunteer work for teenagers in Cambodia and help us work towards our long-term goals to help disadvantaged children.

Vi mäter resultatet av vårt arbete varje år

Varje år deltar tusentals ungdomsvolontärer på våra projekt runt om i världen. Under deras tid utomlands bidrar de till att göra en långsiktig positiv skillnad i de samhällen där de arbetar. För att visa vilket resultat deras hårda arbete har, sammanställer vi varje år en rapport som heter High School Specials Impact repor.
