1. GENERAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
CCASVA welcomes individuals who wish to volunteer their time at the Centre for Child Development in Phnom Penh. The volunteer program provides the opportunity to interact with the children living at the CCD, as well as get involved with other activities including teaching, cooking and traditional dancing. CCASVA welcomes all visitors from both Cambodia and abroad.
For a real opportunity to make a difference, CCASVA suggests that volunteers commit a minimum of two-weeks to volunteering at the CCD. Within these two weeks, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in training and orientation, work in the classrooms, and bond with the children. There may also be an opportunity to visit a local slum in Phnom Penh and meet some of the street children that CCASVA supports.
Anyone wishing to invest their time working with the children at CCD are welcome as volunteers. The criteria required are as follows:
- You must be 18 years of age or older to work at CCD.
- You must provide proof of age and identity - CCD requires a photocopy of your passport and visa, as well as a passport size photo, upon your arrival.
- You must be fluent in English or Khmer; however speaking Khmer is not a requirement of volunteers.
- In the interest of protecting our children, you must provide a police check from your country of residence to show that you have no criminal record or offenses of concern.

On this page you will find some information about potential roles and responsibilities during your volunteer program. However please keep in mind that actual volunteering activities will vary according to the needs of the CCD and the volunteer’s length of stay.
Roles and Responsibilities
The CCD has a classroom, a computer room and a small library. Each day, most of the children go to school, but some also stay behind. The CCD runs extra classes for those children that don’t go to school, and for the other children once they return from school. These classes include English, Literacy and Computer Studies. Volunteers may be responsible for assisting the teachers in running lessons, playing educational games with the students, and helping them read books in the library.
The children at the CCD are all involved in meal time - they help to cook, clean, and set the tables. Volunteers may assist the children with these duties. They may even spend time in the kitchen learning how to cook traditional Khmer food!
Every Sunday, the CCD has traditional Apsara dance lessons for the children. Everyone joins in - many of the older girls have mastered the intricate moves, and even the boys are eager to participate. Volunteers will have the opportunity to attend the dance classes and learn some of the routines.
