Volunteering at CED
Vietnam has changed rapidly in recent years as it has transitioned to a lower-middle income country. These changes have brought about great progress and many benefits. Yet issues still remain, especially related to education and development. As such, the work of NGOs such as CED is crucial to help Vietnam to continue moving forward.
CED’s mission is to develop, test and expand breakthrough solutions to Vietnam’s toughest challenges in education and development. We work with a host of Vietnamese and international partners to implement a variety of projects on topics such sustainable forestry, young women in STEM and citizenship, amongst many others.
CED is made up of a core team of staff in Vietnam in addition to both Vietnamese and international volunteers. We are always on the lookout for talented individuals to join us, volunteer their time and support our work.
By volunteering with CED, individuals have the opportunity to experience the front lines of development and education in Vietnam. Most importantly, benefiting communities in need and changing lives is at the forefront of everything volunteers do.
Whilst no two days are the same, volunteers typically support CED in a number of ways, including:
- Developing proposals and reports
- Conducting research and collecting data
- Writing articles and newsletters
- Website development and support
- Managing social media channels
- Proofreading and revising documents
- Attending program events and meetings
- Teaching English
In return, volunteers have the opportunity develop their skill sets and competencies, make lifelong friends and gain valuable perspectives. Many individuals also find that a placement at CED is an excellent compliment to university and college studies, or other professional work experience.
Volunteers should be creative, flexible, proactive and have an excellent command of the English language. A minimum stay of three months is recommended in order to fully integrate into the office environment.
Overall, volunteering at CED is an extremely rewarding experience. Please click on the links below to see what our volunteers say about their time at CED.
