Potential volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.  No teaching certificate is necessary to teach in the schools, but experience with children and leadership skills are highly recommended. Volunteers at the school will be asked to stay for a minimum length of 1 month, volunteers at the pre-schools can help for a shorter amount of time.

It is expected that volunteers will demonstrate a sincere commitment to sharing their skills with the community in Lushington, while also maintaining genuine respect for the people and culture of the region.
