Are you looking for a safe and interactive group volunteering trip in Africa for students at your school? Let us put together a unique, once in a lifetime volunteer adventure for your high school group which will see you learning, exploring and giving back to local communities and conservation efforts.
African Impact has been facilitating volunteers and interns in Africa for over 10 years and we’re immensely proud of our successes and achievements and the amazing work our volunteers have carried out.
Let us work with you to put together the perfect group itinerary to suit your curriculum and your budget.
We can also arrange additional tours and add-on excursions to famous sights, landmarks as well as tours within cultural villages for students to learn about history, culture and heritage. We have a solid network of staff and operators – comprising of over 500 people around the continent with operation bases on the ground and 24 hour support from trained project managers and guides. We can facilitate volunteer groups of 3 to 40 students.
Volunteering is the ideal way for high school students to learn about new countries, learn new skills and appreciate a unique cultural exchange. Volunteers can be involved in anything from wildlife conservation and research, helping uplift underprivileged communities, to lending a hand in clinics, teaching young children or having some fun doing games and sports coaching!
Our teams on the ground are equipped with a wealth of knowledge about the cultural history and heritage of the local areas we operate in and are always ready for a good story or two around the campfire or braai! We also have education centres at our various project locations to promote learning.
Volunteering in Africa builds character and confidence, and promotes teamwork, encourages leadership and most importantly offers students a safe and FUN experience abroad. We can shape a student volunteering trip around your focus of study of curriculum. We have projects which focus on the areas of biology, environmental issues, marine conservation, animal research, photography, teaching, responsible and sustainable tourism, and even geology, anthropology and archaeology!
We can also cater for modular requirements on certain subjects; the opportunities are endless! We take a holistic and responsible approach to the running of our projects and only develop programs where they are needed. Community buy-in is very important to us and we’ve spent years fostering strong partnerships with community leaders, and government departments.
Volunteer safety is one of our highest priorities and the reviews from our volunteering alumni speak volumes about the quality of our management, trips and the experience we offer. All volunteers go through a full induction program on arrival and are given loads of information before they leave home to prepare them for their trip.
If you’re a teacher or principal we’d love to work with you to create a bespoke group volunteering itinerary for your students. Enquire now to find out more!
You can also fundraise for your trip through online platforms like Volunteer Forever! Previous volunteers have raised up to 100% of their travel costs and project fees! See our Fundraising page for more details.
