Your day will be broke up in 2 as follows:

Mornings
You will be placed at a physical education program which runs in conjunction with our primary schools where volunteers are placed at local public/government schools. A majority of the Schools does not have equipment to conduct a sports program and volunteers have to be flexible and use their initiative. Volunteers will only have 1-3 periods of Physical Education per day, approximately 1-2 hours only and the rest of the day they will be required to assist the teachers in the classroom with lessons. This can vary depending on the activities planned for the day, or the volunteer’s creativity and initiative to conduct their own physical education lessons with the children. 

Structure and Facilities 

Vary depending on the location, resources available and level of trained staff 
Some Schools are very well structured and well managed while others lack infrastructure and resources 
Most of these projects are funded through subsidies, donations and grants.
The kids you will be teaching are between 6 and 13 years old.

You will be placed at a School in the mornings Monday to Friday for the requested hours. 

Afternoons
You will have two Afternoons per week where you will learn how to Surf with a professional Surf Instructor.
Your Surf lesson will be approximately two hours  and will include pick up and drop off from the accommodation, Surf board and wet suit, Fully qualified Surf Instructor, and photos (snapshots) taken with GoPro.

Our coaching team is qualified and we are a fully insured operation from the moment you step into our bus and then off the bus.  You will have 2 Surf lessons per week. Please be informed that these lessons are weather dependent and you have to be flexible to accommodate such conditions AND other bookings we can group  you with to make for a fund an enjoyable experience. 

Typical day

Free-time activities

Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!
