Volunteers are the backbone of Africa Development Corps. A majority of our staff are volunteers, including interns in our Washington D.C. office or volunteers abroad teaching in the classroom, monitoring an HIV testing program, or aiding in the unloading of another shipment of books in Africa. Our volunteers are individuals dedicated to achieving economic and social justice through their involvement with local grassroots organizations or ADC itself.
Our Supported Volunteers are required to have a Masters degree and have already worked abroad. These volunteers usually have experience as teachers, social workers or in other professions and they work directly for ADC on its development programs abroad in food security, education or health. Supported Volunteers cover their own airfare, while ADC provides housing, medical insurance and a small stipend.
