Free (or Cheap) Volunteer Work in Georgia
Volunteers looking to find a role in Georgia will find limited opportunties to make a difference but the government backed Teach and Learn with Georgia programme makes up in quality what the country lacks in quantity of openings.
Grassroots Volunteering in Georgia
The organisations listed below have either got in touch with us to add their details to this or another of our websites, or we otherwise have reason to believe they are actively looking for international volunteers and charge reasonable or no fees to join in, live and work with them:
Teach and Learn with Georgia
Teach and Learn with Georgia (TLG) is a progressive education movement initiated by the Georgian government. TLG aims to improve Georgia’s nationwide language proficiency in an effort towards further globalisation. TLG recruits fluent English, French and German speakers to co-teach their language alongside local teachers in public schools throughout the country of Georgia. Applications from degree level candidates with clean criminal records are advised to apply early for a contract of one academic year, beginning in September.
Where: In public schools across Georgia.
Accommodation & Costs:: There’s no fee, In fact, the overall package includes a monthly stipend of Georgian Lari, some of which is used to pay for homestay accommodation, round trip tickets to and from Georgia, orientation training upon arrival, medical insurance, and 24/7 Support from the TLG Staff.
Hostel Work Exchanges
He’s had a lot of volunteers work there already so the self titled owner of Mark’s Hostel in Tbilisi has high expectations and standards from those that come after; who should be hard working, fun and sociable and enjoy meeting and talking to new people. Elsewhere in the city we’ve seen Hippie Hostel using their Facebook page to recruit.
