Join our Volunteer Activities!

As a volunteer, you'll help to drive change online and in your local community, get hands-on experience in our campaigns, and help us raise vital funds for a greener, more peaceful future.

We need passionate, energetic people who are keen to make a difference.

How does it work?

Our volunteer leaders have a hefty line-up of campaign events and activities on their calendars -- but we need you to bring them to life!

Depending on where you live in South Africa, fill out one of the activities forms by clicking the links below. We'll email you when we have something coming up in your area.
