Lasting Impact
From Within

CorpsAfrica places college-educated African youth in rural communities to help them identify and solve their most pressing local challenges.

Africans are best positioned to lead collaborative, transformative, and sustainable change within their own communities.

Where We Work

African staff manage CorpsAfrica’s offices in its countries of operation and are responsive the specific needs and local context in each country’s volunteers and communities.

Community-Designed Local Solutions

Since 2013, CorpsAfrica Volunteers and rural communities have identified and designed more than 800 projects centered on local ownership, resilience, and collaboration.

The CorpsAfrica Story



Our Volunteers serve in some of the most under-resourced regions of their countries where they venture beyond their comfort zones to learn about their countries and about themselves. By training young Africans to help rural communities identify and solve their own challenges, CorpsAfrica strengthens Africa’s most valuable asset: its people.

Our Partners

We thank all of our donors and Development Partners for supporting CorpsAfrica Volunteers and communities where they work. The organizations listed below are among over 100 partnerships with local, regional, and international organizations supporting our work.

Support Our WOrk

CorpsAfrica addresses two of Africa’s most difficult challenges: engaging youth and helping rural communities overcome extreme poverty. We recruit and train motivated volunteers to live and work in rural, under-resourced areas in their own countries. They collaborate with the community to design and implement small-scale projects that address their top priorities and, by doing so, gain the skills and experience that lay the foundation for personal and professional success.

CorpsAfrica trusts youth and communities to help each other.
