Who are we looking for?
We are looking for caring, dedicated, and experienced individuals. Our volunteers will be subject to preliminary interviews and will need to submit a Police Background Check as well as a Medical Examination. Volunteers must be able to commit to 2 or more months of service.
Upon arrival, volunteers will also need to participate in the Child Protection course provided by ConCERT (Connecting Communities, Environment & Responsible Tourism, a local NGO).
What will you be doing?
Volunteers are involved in our English Language Teaching program and assist in the Cambodia Landmine Museum and Relief Center. Long-term volunteer opportunities are currently under development.
Volunteers are not allowed to stay overnight at the Relief Facility.

The government of Cambodia through the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation requires all organizations that work with children to have formal procedures and background checks on employees and volunteers. They highly discourage allowing tourists visiting, playing and interacting with children and young adults who live in care facilities. Too often these facilities and the children who live there have become tourist attractions. Orphanages have been closed due to this.
To conform to the Cambodian government requirements, and meet the United Nations Child Protection Standards, the Cambodia Landmine Museum does not allow tourists to ‘visit’ the children in our care. All volunteers are required to undergo background checks and police checks prior to arriving in Cambodia.
