Volunteering, for the adventurous!

Teach in Africa

Teaching to make a difference


Our one month Teach in South Africa Program combines hands on teaching experience with the incredible experience of volunteering in disadvantaged communities to make a difference.

After completing your 120 Hour TEFL course, you will join and live with a group of volunteers from around the world, working in local classrooms teaching a wide range of students, assisting with sports, dance, homework programs and much more.

This is truly a once in a lifetime adventure. You will form deep bonds with the people around you, share incredible moments with locals, colleagues, students and program coordinators, explore a region that is less traveled, broaden your own horizons, all while helping to make the world a better place.

Our program is grounded in social responsibility, sustainability, and ensuring the benefit goes to the people and communities that need it the most. $150USD of your program fee is donated directly to the project, to assist with purchasing supplies, medicine, infrastructure repairs, equipment and much more.

Arrival & Accommodations

You will be met at the airport by the ground team and taken to a home stay to meet your host family. Host Families are carefully selected by the project considering safety and sociability. This option allows you to be part of a local family! You’ll have your own room in a brick-built house with running warm water and electricity. There won’t be any luxury but you will be in a well-kept and safe environment.


You will be given an orientation of the township, the project, and the various people who are involved with it. Part of the orientation will include outlining the needs of the community at the moment, how you will fit in, your schedule, work guidance, and other details. You will also be provided with a welcome package which includes a local SIM card and a map.


Tasks vary according to the time of the year, and volunteers are able to choose from a combination of different programs to fit specific needs, as well as provide some challenge and diversity.

Some tasks include:
  • Afterschool Homework Program
  • Dance & Theater Programs (for fun!)
  • Sports Programs
  • Teaching in one of 2 primary schools
  • Teaching and managing at a preschool

Transportation is provided to and from the volunteer house on a daily basis.


The program coordinators often organize weekend excursions, trips and activities which you may join (at an extra cost). You are also welcome to explore by yourself and with other volunteers.

Post Program

You will be provided with a certificate and recommendations from the project directors in appreciation of the work and support you have provided the community.

Many volunteers choose to continue travelling in Africa once they have completed their program. Our local team on the ground is extremely helpful and friendly, and can assist you with your travel plans.

You will have likely developed bonds with the people you have selflessly helped and worked with that go beyond the ordinary. Cherish the moments and memories!
