    Welcome to CorpsAfrica

    CorpsAfrica provides young adults across Africa the opportunity to serve as “Peace Corps Volunteers” in their own countries and help drive solutions to poverty at the community level (like “AmeriCorps” for African countries).  We recruit men and women to move to high-poverty communities and initiate projects that fulfill key needs and whose impact and success can be carefully measured and monitored.  ”Graduates” of the program can go on to serve in other African countries.  CorpsAfrica serves as a model for national service and participatory, collaborative and accountable community development across Africa.
