GSC Thailand Program Expands!
New Thailand Program and 2006 Dates
For two years now, Global Service Corps has been aspiring to fulfill our commitment and involvement in the development of Thailand by expanding our service program there. Therefore, we are excited to announce the recent expansion of our Thailand program! Global Service Corps offers short and long term volunteer opportunities, as well as internships, in Thailand in the fields of health, education and Buddhism. Now, with this recent improvement, GSC will provide participants additional services we have previously been unable to offer. These include a week-long orientation and introduction to the Thai culture and Thai language training, an optional 3 day/2 night stay at a Buddhist Wat, an optional week relaxing on the beach on Koh Samet (one of Thailand's beautiful islands), as well as further service opportunities to fulfill goals you may want to accomplish with GSC Thailand.

In addition to our previously mentioned volunteer opportunities, participants can work at the AIDS Temple (Wat Phrabat Namphu), a Buddhist monastery located near Lopburi city.

GSC Thailand will now operate in Singburi, which is in Central Thailand, and is about 130 km north of Bangkok. This is a less developed part of Thailand with fewer tourists and has a greater need for our service work!

Participants can live with Thai hosts who generously introduce them to Thai Buddhist culture, delicious Thai cuisine and the many wonderful customs of the country, or stay at the homebase with other volunteers.

Due to the shift in our program, please note that some of the 2006 PROGRAM DATES HAVE CHANGED!
