The Fewer Things is a movement with a simple yet powerful goal: to break the norm of a nine to five, corporate office job. We want to provide the aspiring youth of today with hope and freedom. We will allow you to travel, teach and live in an environment which you can truly make a difference to others’.
We can help you achieve the thing you most want from your next endeavour. We started The Fewer Things to allow anyone to experience a new way of living and to show people that there is a way out of the daily grind. More free time, more travel, more money.
We believe that it is incredibly important while you are young to create an environment in which you can succeed. Most of us as we grow older, become frightened; we are afraid of living, afraid of missing a payment, afraid of losing a job, falsely tied to tradition and regime.
If we only prepare ourselves to earn a livelihood, we will miss the whole point in life; and to understand life is much more important than working a 9-5.
Take a look around the website and below to see what the founder of the company has to say.
Hello, welcome to the The Fewer Things! I am Jaemi, I started this company after teaching in Shanghai, where I quickly fell in love with the way of life and the idea that I could work and travel for a living. I have worked on creating a concept that will motivate you and change your life for the better. My main goal is to show each person that you do not have to conform to the modern day expectations of society and you can create a lifestyle that suits you.
The Fewer Things offers a very personal service and will get you qualified and teaching in Asia within a short period of time. We have teamed up with different organisations to offer you free weekly fitness and yoga classes as well as receiving discounts and promotions for the best bars and restaurants in your city! We work with STA Travel to ensure everyone gets the best deals on their flights and insurance packages.
For our China programme we work with the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) who are China’s nationwide not-for-profit organisation conducting international educational exchanges between China and the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand http://en.ceaie.edu.cn
'The CEAIE has been granted the Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and established official relations with UNESCO.
Since its establishment, CEAIE has contributed to the development of China’s international education. In 2014, it was awarded 5A China Social Organization, the highest grade of such, based on the result of evaluation conducted by the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs.'
We work with the CEAIE to ensure every person who is successful in joining the programme gets a guaranteed salaried placement in China. Moving to a completely new country can be daunting at times but rest assured the CEAIE provides an additional level of security and hand picks all of the schools they work with. In other words- you will be well looked after throughout the process.
Our Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia option are all partner programmes and we work with the best in the business to ensure your new adventure is fun, safe and reliable.
