Film and Media Volunteer in Thailand

Let your creativity and skills flourish in northern Thailand while teaching media literacy!

Gap Year Volunteer Role

Thailand is developing at a rapid rate meaning that the digital age is becoming more and more a part of the culture. The media industry continues to grow and entertain millions as Thailand’s youthful generation remains up to date with the latest forms of technology and media, from social to creative. However, this is not the story across the whole of the nation as many individuals in more underprivileged areas miss out on this opportunity to express their creativity through these diverse and rapidly evolving forms of media. With your assistance, knowledge, experience and creativity we hope to address the issue with this unique programme.

On arrival to Thailand you will be welcomed by the in-country team who will run orientations on culture, media teaching, and classroom norms. A team member will also monitor and provide support for your programme from the first introductions with partners to your final day.

This programme is extremely unique as you will be part of our existing programme to teach media literacy to local students. Based upon your skills and experience you could be leading and assisting with teaching four to five hours per day. There will be a curriculum draw up by the in country team which could include various tasks, such as running activities, one-on-one sessions with students, technical support, joining for field trips, and more.

Gap Year Experience

Beyond the project, the location also poses as a perfect setting for anyone with a creative mind as the lush green surroundings and lively local culture offer an all-encompassing unique experience. The people you meet from curious school children to Buddhist monks offer a multi-cultural experience that is fascinating and fun to get to know. This is an incredible opportunity to gain invaluable experience overseas, work and learn from a media professional, and work with our partner schools to spark new creativity and passion in the students!

Prior media experience is not required but is definitely a positive. Our partner schools & temples are extremely excited about this program for their students and this is a very unique opportunity to provide these children with the platform to express themselves and tell their own stories!
