    Abstract

    The Community Development through English Teaching (CODET) project is a joint initiative of ten European, Asian, and Latin American organisations. The project takes place over a two-year period and is funded by the European Union under Erasmus+ programme funding. The project aims to enable 16 young people aged 18 to 30 to do European Voluntary Service in Cambodia, Vietnam, Honduras, Mexico, Estonia, Czech Republic, Ireland and Slovakia and thus develop personal and professional skills as well as to support the development of local communities in these countries through teaching English and engaging in social community projects. Two resources were developed for the EVS volunteers to support them during their placements as part of this project. An English language teaching module was developed for use by volunteers with no previous English language teaching skills to teach people from local communities with little or no English language skills. Finally, this Sustainable Community Development toolbox was developed to support and guide volunteers in simple activities that could support the sustainable development of the local community.
