Summary

Philippines Dance/Music Volunteering

Volunteer with a local community centre that provides programs and support for people of all ages, or at a youth rehabilitation centre. While you teach a child in a music or dance class, his or her mother could be attending a mothers club, the younger sibling could be in a playtime session, or the entire family could be benefitting from free medical services. In your music classes you will make a difference in the lives of children who live in poverty by giving them a space for creativity and self-expression. While space in the community centre is basic, the children are very passionate and you will have access to acoustic guitars and a keyboard.

The youth rehabilitation centre is a facility for minors who have been accused of committing crimes. Many of these children have been here for a year or longer awaiting a trial that may still be far in the distant future. These children have been forgotten and left as victims of circumstance, and they are eager to participate in constructive positive activities such as music and other arts.

Volunteers must commit to a minimum of one week working ten hours per week, but PAA strongly recommends two weeks or longer.
