REACH is a local non-government and non-profit organisation which specializes in providing vocational training, career advice and job placement services for Vietnam’s most disadvantaged youth. In Vietnam, a combination of low education and skills, high youth unemployment levels, poverty, dependency, and declining self-esteem leads to impoverished youth having few economic opportunities. REACH targets the most vulnerable youth who are in need of accessible, affordable skills training. We target disadvantaged young people living in the cities and neighbouring provinces of Hanoi, Hue and Danang between the ages of 16-25 years. Since 2010 we have extended this age range from 16 – 30 years in some circumstances, to also include in our target group young women from marginalised groups such as trafficked women, and women from families living with / affected by HIV or other difficult circumstances.
REACH program graduates go on to earn competitive wages with small, medium and large businesses in Vietnam. Many graduates advance to supervisor, assistant manager and manager roles soon after completing their courses. With a team of experienced, dedicated facilitators, REACH is enabling thousands of disadvantaged Vietnamese youth to reach for their future via access to free vocational training and employment opportunities.
REACH annually trains about 1,200 students, with over 80% of them in employment six months after graduation.
They aim to provide with a vocational training and job placement for disadvantaged youth in Vietnam.
They are looking for an English teacher : learning English is part of all our courses, and our students benefit from having volunteers work with them to practice their speaking and listening. When volunteers work with our teachers, there is more time for practice and work in small groups.
We ask that you:
– speak English well
– commit to at least one morning or afternoon a week, for a minimum of one month
– work with our English teachers and fit in with our class lesson plans
– help to improve our English curriculum and English training materials
They also welcome volunteers to help with administration, marketing, and helping to organize events.
We ask that you:
– commit for a minimum period of one month (hours are flexible)
– are enthusiastic and flexible
– speak English and/or Vietnamese
REACH aims to help the most disadvantage young adults of Vietnam to have access to a brighter future. They give them the chance to become the actors of their future. With their training programme, they give the youth the skills they need to find a job.
