On Friday, November 3rd, Learning House organized Pokhara's first ever barista competition. Competitors were given ten minutes to free pour and etch latte designs of their choosing. Each creation was ranked by a panel of judges from local education institutes, barista training centers, hotels, and cafes.

ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Are you an entrepreneurial go-getter who wants to travel, have fun, and do good?

Our team is hardworking and driven, and our students are determined to reach their education and career goals. Many are job holders and leaders within the community who are looking to improve their English, find better paying jobs, or pursue higher education.

english language practice

What you can do 

Conduct English language practice, host a workshop, plan a seminar, help streamline operations, provide marketing advice. We welcome new ideas and energy!

Unique experience

We help with travel logistics and planning. Instead of spending cash at a fancy hotel or large volunteer organization, you'll support families and local businesses. We'll introduce you to our friends --- guides, hoteliers, restaurant owners --- so you'll know the best places to eat, play, and experience local culture.

What we provide

volunteer pokhara

We put together a cultural package for our volunteers based upon their interests and expertise. You'll study basic Nepali language and be welcomed with traditional meals. Most importantly, you'll feel part of a family and will make friends for life. 

How to apply

Send us your resume and desired dates of travel. Because we take good care of our guests, we can only accommodate a limited number of visitors each year. We want to make sure the experience is meaningful for our staff, students, and of course, our volunteers.

Learning House's Barista Training Program is off to a great start! Classes combine theory and practice to give students knowledge of espresso drinks, the history of coffee, serving skills, and recipes for hot and cold beverages. We are so proud of the progress of our teachers and participants, and student reviews have been excellent.

Congrats, Sheetal!

Miss Sheetal is a local arts teacher and Learning House student who has actively participated in our leadership and education programs. She has recently been accepted to an American university and will be pursuing her bachelors degree in studio arts this fall. We couldn't be more proud of her efforts. Congrats, Sheetal Ji! 

Congrats to our new Coffee Baristas!

Michelle Welsch

Our first Coffee Baristas completed their training...

...and have started teaching other students! 

It's been fun watching our Baristas practice latte art and debate over the perfect espresso shot. And we love watching students gain confidence, too. We are so proud of their hard work!
