Visit amazing Cape Town in South Africa when you volunteer alongside an international team teaching underprivileged children from townships to surf and care for their coastal environment.

Overview

Come and join our team and teach children to surf in addition to coaching other mainstream South African sports in townships that surround the beautiful city of Cape Town.

The aim is for you to assist teachers and GVI staff to run sports lessons at the township schools in the mornings. You will be running general physical education classes but you may also be teaching specific sports like football, netball, cricket, tennis, athletics and rugby. In the afternoon you will help run our surf club. This involves giving the children surf lessons and teaching them about how to care for their coastal environment.

Volunteer and live in an attractive coastal village close to Cape Town and Stellenbosch, with direct exposure to local culture and communities. Optional side trips are available to Robben Island, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Town wildlife safari and wine tasting in Stellenbosch, to name but a few! Any side trips you wish to take can be arranged on arrival in Cape Town. For those travelling onwards there is easy access to the Garden Route and cheap domestic flights to Kruger National park from Cape Town.

Testimonials

“I chose this program as I have a background in sports and water sports and this was a really good combination as I would get to make a difference in both fields. It has definitely met my expectations, the surfing especially, the set up is really good, the instructors are awesome and the kids really love it! I really feel I have made a difference as you see the kids’ progress and how much they enjoy it and would definitely recommend the project to others.”
