Volunteering Opportunities in Bali
There is so many activities happening in Slukat Learning Center that make our volunteers, students and staffs excited. Our Volunteers were performing Balinese Dance and modern dance, our students were celebrating school holiday and travel beyond Bali, for the first time ever. In Slukat everybody is excited and happy to learn and share. Welcome to Slukat Learning Center...home for learning and saving the environment.
My name is Sophie van Loo, I’m 22 years old and I’m from Holland. I volunteered at Slukat Bali in 2014 for three months and had the greatest experience of my life while being there. The reason I decided to do a volunteering job was the wish to experience the island differently than any other tourist. Being a volunteer gives you the opportunity to really experience the local daily life; local markets, local food, the shy but really open children of Bali, the religious way of life with it’sceremony’s, weddings and visits to different temples to pray in traditional clothes.
The students are enthusiastic, friendly, respectful and absolutely take away all your insecurities. SLC is run by caring founders who give a lot of thought how to set up a program for the students to give them optimum opportunity to have a good future. I respect that so much and I hope SLC may welcome a lot of children during it's existence.
I didn’t know what to expect, but like many other happenings in this amazing country it soon made me forget about any worries. As we arrived we were met by dozens of unfamiliar yet friendly faces and were offered sweets and food.
"My time at Slukat Learning Center simply cannot be summarized—never in my life have I had such an exciting, dynamic, and moving experience in the span of only one month."
"Many questions turned in my head before organizing this journey. Is it the right moment? Will my kids share my enthusiasm for Indonesia? Are they ready for this kind of experience? What has changed in Bali since my last visit 14 years ago? But then friends, relatives and something in me kept telling “just do it”! We actually did it and we will never regret this time."
"I was a little nervous before I started teaching because I have never taught anything in a formal classroom environment. I think it took me about a week to feel comfortable with the process of teaching. The students were very helpful and easy to work with. They made this new experience very positive."
