PDV IS LOOKING FOR SKILLED VOLUNTEERS TO KON TUM!

Poussières de Vie is looking for skilled volunteers for our hospitality school, “Hnam Chang Ngeh”, in Kon Tum!

Are you a hospitality or catering professional? Would you like to discover another culture whilst sharing your skills and knowledge? We are currently looking for skilled volunteers to help the staff of “Hnam Chang Ngeh” and to teach a number of courses (including but not limited to the basic duties of receptionist work, housekeeping, and general hotel services).

Interested? Send an email with CV and cover letter to communications@poussieresdevie.org

Background:

Association Xuan and Poussières de Vie have joined forces to create a vocational hospitality training school in the region of Kon Tum, Vietnam, where tourism is currently expanding. The school, called “Hnam Chang Ngeh” (or “House of Hope” in Banhar, one of the local languages) was launched in 2014 and aims at training young people from the local ethnic minorities, providing them with tools for life and a career within the world of hospitality. Each training course lasts six months and welcomes a group of 15 to 18 students. At the end of the training period, the students spend 5 months doing a practical internship with one of our partners in HCMC, Mui Ne, or Phu Quoc.

Hnam Chang Ngeh is based at The Family Garden Hotel in Kon Tum and counts one classroom, a restaurant, as well as 5 rooms for guests.

Mission:

Under the supervision of the Hnam Chang Ngeh Director, the volunteers will: 1) Teach the following subjects related to hospitality and catering: cooking, service, reception as well as subjects such as business culture, cultural differences, accounting, and safety at work; 2) Provide input and advice in order to ensure constant improvement of the teaching curriculum; 3) Support the school with other tasks pending need and the interest of the volunteer (e.g. fundraising, research, improvement of communication channels or teaching material, etc.).

Profile:

Professional from the hospitality, catering or tourism sectors.

Starting Date:

As soon as possible (and for as long as possible).
