Student Volunteer Programme

Our enthusiastic group of student volunteers from various South African universities assist learners with research and public speaking skills to prepare them for participating in our youth projects, conferences and programme events each year.

Through tutoring sessions and workshops, these volunteers impart their knowledge and gain valuable new skills through helping high school learners grasp various topics. One of our past volunteers had this to say:

“I feel that volunteering with SAIIA has given me an opportunity to gain work readiness skills … what also makes this different from other programmes is that we, as volunteers, are not just helping others to learn, but are also learning ourselves. The topics on the environment and current affairs are real and relevant, and I am so excited to be part of something that really matters!”
— Matshaba Mothiane, past volunteer and student at Wits University
