Okay, I admit my response was not the most helpful. So: my village has an outdoors activity company that employs about 60 Westerners. These guys are cracking people - the chaff gets ditched fucking fast. As a result the long termers are all exceedingly good people.
Each week they have a different school group camping by the beach - say 100 kids, average age 12. Each day the staff take the kids out on the ocean, hill walking, mountain biking, etc. Each evening about 10 of the staff camp with the kids to keep an eye on stuff.
They work 5 days a week at the school, from 7 to 7. On the other two days they chip in a day or twos labour depending on requirements on the farm that helps subsidise their existence.
They are provided with free shared accommodation - two to a room. Food is shared, with a rota scheme for cooking and much of it comes straight from the farm. Expect lots and lots of fruit and veg.
For first-timers or complete novice full training in first aid, health and safety and the like, while also being trained in surfing, sailing, skateboarding and the like.
The pay is initially dire, you will not exactly be saving, and you won't be hitting the bright lights of Wan Chai on your wages, but you will be able to afford a few beers and smokes, and have an instant community of other staffers to have fun with.
Professionalism is key - you will be dealing with children in risky situations. Basically, don't fuck around, get stuck in and be pro-active, and it will be notice.
