Volunteering at Nguyen Nga Center – NNC

Dear volunteer, if you’d like more details please don’t hesitate to contact us. The NNC is always interested in new ideas and we look forward to answering your inquiries regarding your time with us.

General information:
Nguyen Nga Center is a private center, promoting the social welfare for young people with special needs. We provide assistance to individuals with physical, learning, … and sensory impairments. We have provided a caring environment, which promotes socialization, educational, and vocational activities for the past 25 years (1993 – 2018). The Center started its operation in July 1993 with a very specific goal:

To improve the quality of life for young people with special needs.

Our programs consist of vocational training, educational scholarships and support to enable our young adults to gain employment and become self-reliant. The center consists of 150 students, eleven teachers and staff members. Currently 35 students have graduated or are attending a University or College and the community group has 24 students who work or own 24 small stores of their own in Quy Nhon and the surrounding countryside.

We try to support our students in their own local communities; an essential aim of the NNC is for as many students as possible to achieve independence through our successful vocational training programs.

Options for volunteers:
The following are just some ideas and we are always interested in hearing about the skills you may have to offer. Please note in order to comply with government regulations we require a photocopy of your passport and a CV. You are also responsible for obtaining your own Visa.

Working with the students:
- Assist students to expand their English-speaking skills and computer skills.
- To assist the staff and students to work with visitors in English and basic marketing techniques.
- Assist students to learn cooking, swimming, sports, dancing, and games.
- Enjoy time with the students as they are sewing, making bracelets, playing music, yoga, painting and computer

Administrative work:
- Assist with Annual Programs at the Center.
- Assist with computer updates, promotions and website maintenance.
- Assist with the marketing and design of products made by the students.
- Assist with the Center’s Fundraising Program.

- Volunteers are responsible for paying for their own accommodations, transportation and meals.
- When working at the Center we would be pleased if you join us for lunch.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
