Placements Practical Creative Therapies


At Global Leading Volunteers, we appreciate and understand the importance of creative therapies to encourage development and rehabilitation. Our Practical Creative Therapies is for those who are qualified within professions to skill share and learn with local organisations within Sri Lanka. 

We are offering a diverse and unique program. As a working professional, you will be creating and developing workshops, within a small team of fellow volunteers, for organisations and spending time taking part in conferences with the potential of shadowing professionals like yourself. You will truly see Sri Lanka’s approaches to Creative Therapies. Sri Lanka has come a long way in their approaches to those with SEN needs, however, there is still a cry out for support. 

As there is an important need for Teaching English, a small fraction of this placement will be facilitating English lessons, however with your creative therapy techniques we are excited to see how you can uplift a classroom using drama or music to engage your pupils! 

We want our volunteers to explore and find themselves during this placement, we also have extra curricular activities such as mindfulness, yoga and traditional dance. Alongside this we  include an all-inclusive action packed weekend in the deep Jungle of Sri Lanka. 

Please note you have to have an accredited qualification with a professional body or prove you are in your final year of MA/Msc study to be able to apply for this placement, if you do not have this but still want hands on voluntary placements, please see our Teaching, SEN and Youth Work program
