Volunteers provide a school with short-term support & fresh ideas

Green Shoots is always open to interest from volunteers

Volunteers provide a school with short-term support and fresh ideas in a range of areas. Green Shoots is always open to expressions of interests from volunteers who wish to contribute to our community and to student learning.

The school is committed to student safeguarding and all volunteers must provide a clean criminal background check and strong references before being offered a position at the school.

Gap Year Volunteers

Most Gap Year volunteers at Green Shoots volunteers have come from within the United World College movement. IB Diploma graduates spend all or part of a school year with us, expanding their own experience and helping our students understand what it means to be a responsible global citizen.

Information about the support provided by Green Shoots to young volunteers can be found here.

Professional Volunteers

Green Shoots works with professional volunteers seeking a short-term, full- or part-time commitment to a values-led community in exchange for new experiences and partial living support while in Hoi An.

The school welcomes professionals with a background in classroom teaching, related services (library management, outdoor education, etc), administration, business development, HR, IT or financial services.

Green Shoots is an equal opportunity employer. Safeguarding young people is central to our work and lays the foundation for everything we do. We recognise that to reduce risks to young people we must create a safe environment and the safer recruitment of staff is a key part of this.
