Trellis invests 100% of your program fees into our nonprofit educational initiatives. Many comparable organizations generate profit from your hard work. By volunteering with Trellis you ensure that all your time, money, and effort are put towards educating more people.


Our specialized international program gives you the opportunity to travel as well as train and teach. Upon completion of our volunteer training program you’ll have the option of securing a job through our trusted network of partners in either Vietnam or Japan. The choice is yours! 


Trellis’ unique curriculum and small class sizes. Our customized curriculum and class sizes of between 6 and 8 students ensure that your transition into the teaching environment is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. 


Trellis provides education to those who need it the most. Our classes are reserved for disadvantaged and disabled Vietnamese youth who generally do not have access to high-quality extracurricular foreign language education. This makes your time volunteering and teaching with Trellis hugely productive not just for you but also for your students.


More time teaching, less time studying. The only way to become an effective teacher is to teach! Our program provides you with 2-weeks of training followed by a minimum of 150 hours of in-classroom teaching experience. 


Location, location, location! Located on the central coast of Vietnam, Da Nang boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It’s also close to many historical attractions and national parks. Combined with the relaxed demeanor of the city, its new-meets-old cultural fusion, and its delicious local cuisine, it’s safe to say that Da Nang is the perfect volunteer destination.
