Volunteers will have a weekend off to explore some tourist spots around the project area. We will not arrange any tour for everyone therefore, you can discuss with your friends where you would like to spend the weekend. There are some interesting options for the team to explore, and the project coordinator will introduce you to some attractions but still, the decision is yours. He/she also can help to arrange the transportation for you as well if you needed, but the cost will be on your own expenses.

CYA – Global EDUCATION CENTER (GEC) aims at providing free alternative education for children and teenagers to develop their self - confident, support them in creating their dream for the future, and to make education their first priority.

We welcome all motivated volunteers to join us in making change in this community and learn great thing from this community as well.

What do we expect from you?
- Volunteers read and understood this information. Stay the entire length of project.
- Volunteers are aware about the concept of international voluntary service which is not a cheap way of spending your holiday but a voluntary activity that need your high motivation and willing to achieve a certain goal together with team.
- Realize that living condition in Cambodia is much difference from your home country (no warm water, no air-conditioning, not easy to access to international phone and internet, no soft beds, and the food is also differences etc). Volunteers should understand about the aims of project and realize that learning about Cambodian way and social contact is more important than manual work.
- Volunteers are open minded, leave prejudice behind and show initiative.
- Volunteers should understand the situation of spending time with local people who do not speak English very well.
- Volunteers should try the effort in trying to communicate in basic Khmer language or other way of communicating (work, pictures, gestures, etc). If you will try, you will be amazed how quick you will learn basic Khmer language.
- Do not complain if any activities do not happen as planned. It is depending on condition and situation. So, bring some flexibilities and you will stay relax and avoid a lot of stress and frustration for yourself.
