Facilitate Collaborative Action by Convening a Network of Partners

Collaborate with a robust network of development partners to foster collaborative efforts leveraging their expertise and resources in tandem with CorpsAfrica Volunteers.

Centralize proven development approaches, training materials, and information with development partners, NGOs, and the global community.

Support Our Work

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.
