Senior Volunteer Work

A perfect start and place for our retired or  more senior volunteers is our Training Center in Nong Khai, Thailand. Here you can volunteer work with our young Thai, Lao, Burmese trainees, teach English, mentor them and you can also teach at a local school or temple. If you like to help troubled boys you  can volunteer at a juvenile detention center. You may volunteer at the town hospital.

Combine several activities! Go to Laos too. During Thai Laos holidays we arrange for very popular and unique 21st Century Learning Camps! 

Many retired volunteers go to volunteer work in villages in Laos, South Thailand, some in Cambodia and Nepal. You have many options to volunteer your skills in South East Asia with us! 

Start with a Free Training Week!

Apply or ask us for more information!

We help you find the right project when you apply, no application fees! Ask us to put you in touch with a fellow senior who volunteered before with Openmind Projects!

What do you offer the world as a senior volunteer? 

You are one of the many energetic and senior baby boomers! Lots of energy and lots of time!

What is your experience, special skill, what do you like to do?  Who do you like to work with: young kids, teenagers, adults, seniors, poor village kids or migrants, refugees?

What local support do you want? A personal assistant, pick up in the mornings or?

How much, how little do you want to spend and on what? Do you want to spend your money on local people or overseas salaries and promotion?

What are you looking for? What do you want from your good volunteer efforts: good feelings, new friends, meaningful work or new impressions, or all? 

We are happy to guide you to the volunteering of your taste! 

As a local nonprofit, NGO, we not only offer you places to go but also qualified advice before you go!

Our local people from our very projects know the best!

And once you confirmed, we send you our Handbook with much useful volunteer advice and information.

Once you arrived for our acclaimed training week (which is free ) at our Training Center in Thailand, you will get more important advice and practical training by our people. Learn about culture, language, volunteer work and teaching together with other volunteers!

There is a great volunteer job abroad awaiting you in Asia!
