CK Volunteer Training

Get prepared to volunteer with Courageous Kitchen with this orientation course.

Courageous Kitchen serves underprivileged youth and adults in Bangkok, Thailand. We're always looking for dedicated, thoughtful volunteers to help us continue to make a difference in communities we serve.

The best volunteers are those who are well informed. Volunteers who arrive at any organization without the knowledge of their mission, values, and an understanding of the circumstances of the communities served, waste valuable time and resources. Whether you join Courageous Kitchen in making a difference or not, we hope you will volunteer responsibly by being as prepared as possible when given the opportunity to volunteer.

For the courageous folks interested in joining us, this $10 short course includes training on:

  • Working with Refugee Communities
  • Trauma Informed Care
  • Child Protection
  • Food Safety Basics (included as a separate course)

If you are interested in volunteering or interning you must complete this course, and have a working knowledge of the materials included. The courses can be completed in roughly 2-3 hours, but recommend completing a few lectures each day, over a consecutive 2-3 day period. Fees for the course help us cover the cost to prepare, update, and supply this information for your enrichment.
