Aside from being a place to learn, university can also be platform that can prepare you for the real world. As future agents of change, you will be transforming the lives of the people around you. But, why wait when you can create a meaningful impact now for people who live a world away from you? Join us in a small yet dynamic university town of Depok, West Java, where you would get to work with passionate and dedicated student volunteers to provide creative education opportunities for local underprivileged children and young people.


Challenge yourself in their English Without Borders program, where you get to teach English to underprivileged kids through storytelling and fun activities. Put your creative skills to the test and help create a performance that nurture  creativity in an applied theater program.  Whether you are nifty in arts and crafts, looking to hone your public speaking skills, or simply seeking a challenge that will benefit you as well as others, English Art Lab has it all!


English Art Lab is established under the English Department of the Faculty of Humanities with the aims to empower children and young people through creative education. The organization has since worked on providing English learning opportunities for vulnerable and underserved youths, which continues to this day. They are also about to launch another applied theatre program that allows youths to explore social issues that confront them through performing arts. English Art Lab believes that art and education should be accessible for all, and that it has a pivotal role in one’s personal development.

"The main thing I took away from volunteering abroad was how incredible it is to be able to come together to work with people from all over the world! I made a lot of new friends."
