Summer Volunteer Programs in South Africa

South Africa is a country on the southernmost tip of the African continent, marked by several distinct ecosystems. It is as well-known for its gorgeous beaches and epic safari reserves as it is for its stormy civil rights history. Over 20 years after apartheid ended in 1994, the country is still a place where the divide between the rich and poor is vast. Despite this, the community and culture of South Africa continue to draw people from all over the world to visit the pleasant people who call it home.

Exceeds expectations

My trip to South Africa has been the most pivotal moment of my life thus far. Especially within this specific program, you tackle issues that most other travel organizations do not. I was able to work directly with a small business owner, and the whole GLA group was able to help foster entrepreneurship in a country with about a 25% unemployment rate. South Africa is a beautiful country, with stunning views (and penguins! and ostriches!) and vibrant cities. If many are hesitant to travel afar, South Africa is a great choice. Everyone is welcoming and helpful (and speaks English). When I left, I cried my eyes out. I plan on returning as soon as possible, and hopefully studying there during University.

Yes, I recommend
