Volunteer, Intern, and Job Opportunities

Asante Africa Foundation is heavily volunteer operated, relying on the heroic efforts of our volunteers in the USA. Our office is based in the East Bay area of San Francisco, CA. If you are able to make a regular commitment, locally or virtually, you could make a huge difference to what our team is able to achieve. See details of USA based volunteer roles below.
We would like to say, “Asante sana” or thank you very much to all of our volunteers for their support.
If you would like to volunteer please fill out a volunteer application form or contact us


Asante Africa Foundation does not charge money at any stage of our employment process in any country - Kenya, Tanzania, or USA.


A Toast to our Volunteers who do because they believe

For Asante Africa Foundation, simply recognizing the importance of our volunteers doesn't do justice to what our volunteers mean to us. Their time, devotion, donation and most importantly their passion for our mission and vision have successfully impacted Asante Africa Foundation’s growth.

Every volunteer is important and key to our success.

From our high school student volunteers in the Bay area who fundraise at their schools to our International volunteers, who help contribute to our website and proactively raise awareness. We all share one simple goal: the power of knowledge as a catalyst to help young people create a future where they can live their potential. Asante Africa Foundation would not be where we are today without our amazing volunteers!
For that reason we want to recognize each and every one of you! We have created our very own Volunteer World Map, with each and every active volunteer, intern, Board of Directors and Advisors.
So take a look! You never know who lives right by you that's affiliated with Asante Africa Foundation. Change in the world begins with us...

Volunteer in East Africa

We team with local communities in the countries where we work to become active in the planning and implementation of their projects and as such, Asante Africa Foundation does not offer volunteer opportunities for overseas placements. We do team with a volunteer hostel who can provide in country based opportunities. Ujamaa Hostel - a volunteer hostel located in Arusha, Tanzania that provides fun, safe, budget accommodations where you can meet like-minded people and spend time volunteering.
