Local Buddy – Student Exchange Vietnam

Posted by SE Vietnam - Student Exchange Vietnam

A Volunteer (or Local Buddy) in Student Exchange Vietnam Program is defined as a person who will assist international students in Vietnam in terms of getting used to the accommodation, transportation, food, providing them guidance and timely support, hanging out and helping them socialize with the community around. We study the volunteers’ profiles and conduct an interview with them before inviting them in our program. All volunteers will be provided with guidelines and orientation before taking the job.
