In 2016, CorpsAfrica/Senegal became the central hub for the CorpsAfrica model in West Africa, establishing the first francophone program. In its inaugural year, we welcomed 12 Volunteers who served 11 municipalities across Senegal. The program’s success led to rapid expansion, facilitated by the professional integration of program alumni whose employment rate exceeds 80 percent in highly-regarded national and international institutions and development organizations. Through its commitment to excellence, CorpsAfrica/Senegal has built a strong reputation , positioning itself as one of the most recognized and vibrant volunteering and community development organizations in the country.

Senegal is one of the highest-performing economies in West Africa, with sustained growth of over 6 percent for several years. However, limited access to essential social services, and economic opportunities remain significant concerns for rural communities. As a result, Volunteer projects address several sectors including agriculture and economic development.

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.
