Life-Changing Experience

Experience a new culture, gain valuable life skills, and make a positive impact by volunteering overseas in Africa

The high school volunteer abroad program offers a unique and unforgettable opportunity for young students aged 15-19 to contribute to meaningful volunteer work in Africa while immersing themselves in a new culture and acquiring valuable skills. Our teen volunteer program is thoughtfully structured to accommodate individuals without any specific qualifications or expertise, as long as they possess the passion to make a positive impact. Each volunteer project includes a well-balanced itinerary consisting of informative sessions, practical and observational service tasks, cultural exploration activities, and weekend excursions.

Make a Difference

By participating in our program as a teenage volunteer, you will have the opportunity to develop and acquire a range of valuable skills, including team management, adapting to unfamiliar environments, planning, and preparedness. Additionally, you will cultivate a global mindset and become a socially-oriented leader. At HAF Volunteers, our goal is to engage students or student groups in a new community and culture, allowing them to make meaningful contributions to sustainable development projects. We are committed to ensuring that students have a fulfilling and transformative experience that they can take pride in. Through hands-on learning, students will not only gain insight into themselves within a new setting but also discover new passions and enhance their leadership abilities.

Students applying for this program must have a genuine interest in effecting change, be open minded to new cultural experiences and the keenness to learn and make a difference.
