Be a part of impacting the next generation of Vietnamese students by teaching them conversational English and building intentional relationships. Play a personal role in shaping the future of these students in a country that’s changing in front of your eyes!


  We are no longer accepting applications for Summer 2021, but we are looking forward to Summer 2022 programs!

After 3 days of orientation in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, you and your team will spend the first week or the program in a cultural exchange program with University students in Hanoi. During this week you will have the opportunity to share about your culture, learn about their culture, build relationships with the students, and participate in sightseeing activities. The following weeks will be spent in a smaller town teaching English to high school students who have much less access to English language learning—especially from a foreign teacher.

Evenings are spent primarily with your team. Not only will you need the time to plan for the next day, but you’ll also enjoy a time of intentional community, fellowship, and reflection.
