Devote your summer to helping disadvantaged kids

You may feel you want to spend your summer helping others and contributing in some small way to a developing community. If you do, you’ll be humbled and inspired by this unique opportunity. Spend six weeks contributing to communities in need and developing your own leadership skills by tutoring school  students in Cape Town in reading, math, science and information technology.

  • You’ll also take a course through the University of Cape Town to develop your insight into the conceptual issues around development, poverty and power in the context of post-apartheid South Africa.

  • You will also attend weekly reflective sessions in which you will discuss your field work and learn skills to support your teaching as well as relating your experiences to the overall themes of the core course.

Volunteering was a simple way to both give back to my host country a well as to enhance my own understanding and experience abroad. ”
