We are accepting applications for the 2022-23 cohorts!
CorpsAfrica is a non-profit organization that recruits and places ambitious young Africans in rural, high-poverty communities in their own countries to facilitate small-scale, high-impact projects that are identified by local community members, fulfill key needs, and whose impact and success can be carefully measured, all through a transformative volunteer experience.
CorpsAfrica Volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. In the past, these have included agriculture, gender, health, education, water and sanitation, environment, business, engineering, peace studies, language studies, as well as many others. The additional (and essential) skills that Volunteers need for their service–including community integration, proposal development, and project design and management–are taught as part of CorpsAfrica’s expert training program.
