You can volunteer for Trinh Foundation in a number of ways – and you don’t have to leave the country, if you don’t want to.

Volunteer in Vietnam

We are always looking for volunteers, to travel to Vietnam.
It might be fairly soon, or later on, or even just “maybe” one day.

You might be interested in a shortish stint – 2 or 3 weeks
or longer – 3 months? 6 months? Even 2 years.

If you are interested in travelling to Vietnam and working with speech therapy graduates, students and other professionals –  please fill out the expression of interest.

This will help us learn more about your experience, your area of speciality and how long you may be available for. We’ll get back to you to discuss what the options might be.
If you’re a speech pathologist who is not based in Australia – we want to hear from you too.

Volunteer roles are wide-ranging, as a volunteer on a short (say 3 week) stint in Vietnam, speech pathologists like you could:

  • Using your speech pathology skills, work with patients in your area of expertise, supervising and mentoring the Vietnamese speech therapy graduates in their workplaces;
  • contribute to the continuing professional development of the Vietnamese speech therapy graduates by presenting seminars, lectures and clinical teaching in your area;
  • Work with teachers, carers and other professionals to help children and adults with disabilities.

We have some amazing volunteering opportunities this year for speechies to travel to Vietnam offering continuing professional development to the speech therapy graduates.

Volunteer from Australia

You can  get involved right now by volunteering your skills and time to help us keep everything happening and growing, right here in Australia?

We are a small foundation always looking for people to raise funds in creative ways, write content, manage IT, help coordinate projects around raising awareness , getting the word out, and generally keep it all happening. The Beyond Borders Skype Mentoring Program may be how you can help. (See below)

Email volunteers-tfa@trinhfoundation.org and we’ll contact you to see what how you can get involved.

Beyond Borders Skype Mentoring Program

TFA is launching the new Beyond Borders Skype Mentoring Program and we are looking for both experienced and new volunteers to get involved. Have you ever wanted to volunteer with TFA but not been able to commit to a journey to Vietnam? If you think this might be for you then consider the following:

  • Do you have 3 years of clinical experience?
  • Can you volunteer 1 hour of time per month?
  • Do you enjoy mentoring less experienced speech pathologists?
  • Do you want to make a meaningful connection with a Vietnamese speech therapist?

Just complete the Mentoring EOI form. You will then be matched with a speech therapist in Vietnam who has also expressed interest in being involved in the program.

Once you express your interest and are approved by TFA to become a volunteer mentor you will be provided with a mentoring guide and toolkit to support you in your role.

If you would like further information about this email volunteers-tfa@trinhfoundation.org .
