Volunteers from all walks of life

We welcome all volunteers regardless of age or background. Everyone has something to contribute, and we'll find the right project for you!

Discover new ways to teach

We believe in learning by doing. Our volunteers find ways of getting children away from their desks and teach English in practical situations.

Truly rewarding experiences

Joining our free language and cross-culture training for volunteers - led by local trainees - allows you to make a highly valuable contribution to local projects.

Help us promote sustainability

Volunteers' skills and experience are greatly valued by the conservation projects we support, including pioneering ecotourism schemes.

Make your money count

We charge very low volunteer fees and a lack of admin costs means all our resources go directly to the projects we support.

Ram's volunteer story

When volunteering in NongKhai, you can choose to stay at the OpenMind house for free, or rent your own place. Since I was volunteering for a while, I stayed with OpenMind for the first couple of months and then got my own place.
