We've discovered that when you're given the opportunity to learn about the local culture and customs, and understand community development, your volunteer experience is truly complete. To gain this inside perspective, we provide Cultural & Learning Activities. You'll enjoy a detailed orientation, language training, field trips, guest speakers, participation in local activities, and feedback sessions. Together, these activities give you an inside perspective of the community and culture, within and beyond the context of your volunteer experience.
Volunteers have constant access to our professional and experienced local in-country staff who know the community, and who can answer questions, share perspectives, provide security and offer advice. Lodging arrangements can be done.This is an opportunity to get an authentic taste of the culture. The sky is the limit for an enthusiastic volunteer!

Sarah Webb – UK
Working at Child and Youth development Centre has been a great and rewarding experience. The staff always have a smile and are always there to support you. I have loved living in Sri Lanka. I’ve really enjoyed my teaching and will certainly miss students.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to experience Sri Lankan life and culture while working at Child and youth Development Centre
Neil Foulkes -- UK
Child and youth Development Centre in Boossa is a fantastic community centre and a school. I was involved in teaching computing to the children in the community. It gives young volunteer the perfect opportunity to learn and really become part of and experience Sri Lankan culture. The students are so respectful, friendly and very curious about foreign culture, they really are a pleasure to teach.
