Volunteer Application

Africa Volunteer Corps is now accepting applications for the 2015 class of volunteers. For more information please read the section Thinking of Applying? on our website. IMPORTANT: Please read all application materials carefully before applying. We cannot consider incomplete applications. It is important that you answer all questions completely. We receive many incomplete applications because applicants have limited time at a computer with internet access. We highly recommend writing the questions down or copying them onto a separate document first, drafting them on a separate sheet or document, then copying your answers into the application later. This will ensure that you can take your time answering the questions carefully and do not feel rushed. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2015. We encourage you to apply as early as possible in case there are any computer or website problems. Applications must be filled out in full (including short answers, essays, CV’s, certificates, and letters of recommendation).
