Volunteer in Lebanon



SB OverSeas is looking for enthusiastic and capable volunteers to teach and help run two of our schools and women’s training centres in Lebanon: one in Beirut and one in Saida (45 minutes south of Beirut).
Our schools prepare the refugee children living there for the entry tests into the Lebanese public education system. Without access to public education, they risk missing out on an education permanently, and becoming a “lost generation”.
The women in our centres, meanwhile, find themselves in vulnerable situations, and have asked our team to provide them with English lessons in order to give them a new practical skill, and to empower them with the confidence that comes with learning a second language.
The programme will run from January 2018, and we are looking for volunteers to join us for placements of 2 months or more. Volunteers may apply for one of two branches of the programme:
  • Branch A: full-time volunteering (contribution of $250/month)
  • Branch B: volunteering and Arabic language course (contribution of $425/month)

Read the testimonials from our volunteers here and see our article in Brussels Express.
