We currently run a kindergarten in the Philippi Township in Cape Town, where we are busy with early childhood teaching to young children.
Youth Solutions Africa are a non-profit organisation, based in Cape Town, South Africa. We usually have volunteers all year round, but not many in the winter months. The projects we offer, are working with our children in our kindergarten, which currently has about 40 children - they have previously not had any access to an education, because of the poverty-stricken area they reside in. We offer a very unique experience, in that volunteers are provided with accommodation, transport to all the projects, and they get to be a real part our organisation. The volunteers will work with our three teachers, who are doing basic education, as well life-skills with the children.
South Africa has so many things to offer - Table Mountain, hiking up Lions Head, Safaris, the Garden Route - all of which we can organise for you, plus you get to meet other volunteers and locals!
Yes, we will do a meet and greet at the airport, make sure you are made to feel very welcome, and show you around the best spots in Cape Town.
We provide accommodation in the nearby Observatory area, where you will stay with other volunteers, interns, and also local South Africans. We generally provide a single room in a house with all amenities, but the option to share a room with another volunteer or intern is also available. Wifi is also provided.
We provide food during the day, but breakfast and supper is usually made by the volunteer at the house they are staying in.
