EDUTOURISM

YUM welcomes local and international groups who are looking for a meaningful and exciting alternative to the typical tourist destinations. Whether it’s a school-organized field trip or a camp, YUM is helping to fill a growing need for people to see more of the world, and involve themselves in community service projects.

 

At YUM’s community centers, it’s easy for anyone to help with various activities ranging from working at the library or outdoors, teaching English, to helping with renovations, organizing a food drive and distributing the food packages, working with the local health posts and farming organic vegetables.

VOLUNTEERING

YUM strongly believes in volunteerism as a way to, not only support our projects, but as a channel for cultural exchange.

 

Volunteers from throughout Indonesia and across the globe have contributed significantly to YUM in the past and continue to do so today. Volunteers have assisted YUM in every area from fundraising for the organization, providing technical expertise and to helping children in our community libraries with their reading. If you have skills that can benefit our projects and can work with us for at least three months then please contact us. Volunteers should have a basic understanding of the Indonesian language and international applicants should apply at least six months before coming to Indonesia.
