Join our Camps, help with R&D, IT, pay less.

Live and learn with local people and volunteers. Gain new experiences and a better understanding of the world. Bring home many stories! 

Combine projects. Start at our Training Center in Thailand, spend time by the sea, in the mountains, in Laos, Cambodia or Nepal. 

Volunteer abroad on your vacation or gap year. Stand out on your college, university or job application!

Prepare for your Gap Year Volunteer Experience in Asia

We help prepare you for your Gap Year or Gap Month before leaving home! We send you Online Pre-Departure Handbooks and you are always welcome to ask us for additional advice!

We welcome you to attend our Free Volunteer Week of training at our Training Center in Nong Khai, Thailand before you start! 

Learn about culture, volunteering, some useful language and our teacher training! It is free to attend and you can stay at our Center, and make new local and overseas friends. It will help you to quickly feel comfortable and welcome in your new country. A gentle introduction!


 Your Work as a Gap Year Volunteer

Your volunteer work depends on you and your volunteer project.  When you apply (no registration fees), we will guide you to the project for you!

Teach English as a volunteer. Practice simple conversation in fun Role-Plays. You do not have to be a teacher to teach! During your free training week, you will have a chance to learn and practise your new skills! 

Teach IT, Internet and English, help young students learn to search online, and combine all these skills together in our ‘Learning By Doing’ method!

Or volunteer to support ecotourism and community development, or on a marine conservation project if you are a diver. 

Our Gap Year volunteers love our awesome Learning Camps at our Center in Thailand and in the mountains on the Burma border! 

Watch OMP Camps

Wherever you go, you will have a great experience and meet amazing people from many different backgrounds. Go back with wonderful memories and lots to tell your friends and family!
