Student and School Volunteers

Volunteer in Africa on one of our amazing programmes!

Inspire and educate your students in Africa, the most amazing classroom in the world. We offer tailor-made high school travel experiences, perfect for groups aged 12-18 years.

Many of our volunteer programmes are suitable for High School groups looking for summer or spring break programmes in Africa. We can tailor-make a bespoke itinerary for your student travel volunteer experience meeting your community service, conservation or environmental requirements.

Please visit our Student Travel section for bespoke High School travel itineraries based around community service, conservation, leadership and team building activities. Our tailor-made High School Expeditions will incorporate your own curriculum requirements and goals as well as including team building and community service elements.  

Take a look at the volunteer projects below which are already used to working with groups of high school students.
