Education and Teaching Volunteer Programs

There is a wonderful saying, ‘Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer!’ South Africa is a country with many challenges in the education sector and Cape Town is no exception. Connect-123’s well-established network of organizations and schools have meaningful projects for international education and teaching volunteers and a keen appreciation of how these volunteers can help them reach their objectives. Teaching opportunities in Cape Town include hands-on teaching and mentoring roles as well as ways to volunteer your research, advocacy and fund-raising skills in the name of education.
