Volunteer Program

EGBOK is an organization that was built by dedicated volunteers from around the world. We are proud to share that we now employ a nearly full Cambodian team who are passionate and committed to EGBOK's work.

Although we are flattered by your interest in volunteering with EGBOK, we do not accept short-term volunteers here in Cambodia. 

Here's why:

  • EGBOK employs and empowers the local community for our daily operations of the organization.
  • When working with EGBOK students, it is important to create long-lasting relationships, rather than having our team changing consistently. We want to have a positive impact of students’ social and emotional development.
  • It takes time to adjust to living and working in Cambodia. We want to give volunteers a chance to get comfortable living in a new environment.

However, should you have a specific skill or expertise that you could provide to EGBOK and you are interested in volunteering long-term (minimum 3 months), we would love to hear from you. Please be aware that EGBOK conducts thorough interviews and background checks with all prospective volunteers to ensure your time here would be meaningful and productive.
