About Program

Join People & Places in South Africa as a school support volunteer. Participants in this program will support educators at ten under-resourced primary schools in the Nelson Mandela Bay township. These schools and their staff members are especially in need as the education system in the Port Elizabeth region continues to undergo post-apartheid transitions.

Get hands on experience not only teaching, but interacting with these students through every aspect of their school life - among them . . . nutrition, technology, and life-skills training.

An ethical program with lasting impact

My husband and I are about to return for our 5th volunteer visit to a rural South African school through People and Places. I cannot underestimate the quality of this provider. P&P is one of the most ethical companies I have ever come in contact with. They care deeply about running programs that enable sustainable change for the people whom the volunteers serve. Throughout the volunteer process, we felt that P&P was knowledgeable, ethical, caring and supportive. They work with local partners around the world who are equally impressive. We had no intention of making this part of our life's work, but we now feel that South Africa is our second home. I credit P&P for making this such a meaningful program for us, as well as the teachers, students, and families in the township we serve.

What would you improve about this program?
I take the responsibility of writing an honest review very seriously because others will depend upon my words. Truthfully, in my years of working directly with P&P, I cannot find a flaw in their program. This is one great program.
