We welcome applications from young people between the ages of 18 and 25 years old who are passionate about making a change in their own lives and in broader society.
If you’ve passed Matric and have good grades in English and Maths or Maths literacy, then you are eligible to apply. Graduates (Diploma, Degree, Honours etc.) from all fields of study are eligible to apply. Students who are taking the whole year off from their tertiary studies are also eligible to apply.
IMPORTANT: YearBeyond is a full-time commitment. Volunteers are required to attend the programme from Monday – Friday, from 9am – 6pm.
NOTE: Applicants who have a job or have to attend classes during the week are not eligible to apply. Volunteers must be able to commit for the entire duration of the programme i.e. from February to November.
In addition to the work you’ll be doing to support learners in schools, as a volunteer you’ll be building your personal profile and setting yourself up for success in the long term.
The Volunteer Development Programme has been crafted to support you in your efforts in schools, and also to prepare you for the world of work and tertiary studies.
Short courses at Stellenbosch University, skills development, networking events and facilitated personal growth sessions will set you in good stead to take on any opportunity that will cross your path after Year Beyond!
