CorpsAfrica’s mission is to build on the Peace Corps’ notable success in Africa by providing the same transformative experience to emerging African leaders. Founded in 2011 by a former Peace Corps volunteer, CorpsAfrica inspires its members to launch high-impact community development projects in the growing number of countries it serves.

CorpsAfrica addresses two of Africa’s most difficult challenges: creating opportunities for youth and helping rural communities overcome extreme poverty and build resilience. We recruit motivated volunteers to live and work in remote, low-income 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 rural communities to help each other.
