Action Volunteers Africa (AVA)
Action Volunteers Africa, a youth development NGO based in Wynberg, Cape Town, uses volunteering as a tool to unlock the potential of youth. AVA recruits, trains and places unemployed youth in full-time volunteering positions in NGOs, SMMEs & schools. Through sustained volunteering and AVA’s unique training and personal development programme, youth gain experience, develop confidence and self-awareness and the networks needed to build sustainable futures.
YearBeyond or YeBo is a partnership between the Western Cape Government and numerous NGOs aimed at improving educational outcomes and encouraging a culture of volunteerism.
As a volunteer tutor you will offer literacy, numeracy and homework support. While volunteering you will participate in a self-development and leadership programme.
Volunteering with YearBeyond is a full-time, five day a week commitment, and volunteers are busy from 9am to 5pm every day. They complete their self-development programme in the mornings, and are transported to their school in the afternoon to run the after-school education support and learner development programme.
The Yebo volunteer leadership and self-development programme has three core pillars:
- A series of three short courses offered by the Frederick Van Zyl Slabbert Institute at Stellenbosch University
- An Innovation Challenge judged by a prestigious panel of political and industry leaders
- A unique self-development programme designed and facilitated by Action Volunteers Africa
