    About Africa Volunteer Corps

    Africa Volunteer Corps is a service corps for Africans to do long-term volunteer work in African-initiated development projects. We train and place African university graduates at local, grassroots NGO’s in Africa to work for one year.

    The goal of AVC is to harness the power of motivated, educated Africans and put it to use for locally-initiated development projects in Africa, opening doors for Africans to leverage their own resources and strengthening grassroots development efforts.
