How your Volunteer Fee is Used:

Volunteer tourism, or ‘voluntourism’ as it is popularly known, is loosely defined as a holiday in which you give back to the land you are visiting; contributing to either community development or conservation. But it’s so much more than that. Voluntourism encompasses a new trend of responsible tourism, where travelers are making informed and responsible choices and planning trips which don’t negatively affect the country or communities they are visiting. When volunteering, it is critical that travelers choose a volunteer organisation or charity with a proven ethos and philosophy around sustainable and responsible tourism practices. This applies both to their work with local communities, wildlife and our volunteers themselves.

African Impact is proud to have a 10 year track record of facilitating responsible volunteer programs in Africa, providing 24 hour support and guidance for volunteers and offering on-going support to communities in need. Understandably, these operations cost money to run and this is where the volunteer fee comes in.

Work & Impacts

Greenpop ct nov13 %c2%a9rowan makhulu 57 (1)

At Greenpop we are always busy with events, planting days and trying to increase environmental awareness. And this involves communicating with different groups of people: our beneficiaries, volunteers, interns, partners, stakeholders and other people who are interested in sustainability and greening.

Our Sales & Marketing Department is therefore always supported by several interns, who (depending on their skills and interest) are involved in a variety of tasks like:

Social media

  • Assist in defining social media strategy for events, partners, planting days, etc. Source interesting information and nice to know facts on internet to post on our social media
  • Write and schedule posts on our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter,
  • LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest)

PR & Copywriting

  • Write press releases
  • Write and send the monthly and weekly newsletters (for volunteers and partners)
  • Write blogs and articles for the sales department to use
  • Manage the media database (& research new media partners and channels)

Market research

  • Research new partners and agents for our products (like Trees for Travel, tree pledges)
  • Investigate new sales and product opportunities
  • Source media outlets to feature our products and planting days
  • Find / write interesting content for partner communication (f.e. newsletter, blogs,articles)
  • Manage contact database for partners, agents and career centers at universities.

 

 Note you’ll need to bring along your own laptop to work on.

Fun & Travel

Things to do in your spare time

Shark cage diving

Local Activities

You will be ideally situated to explore Cape Town’s vibrant night life, beautiful gardens where you can feed the squirrels, visit museums and enjoy a city bus tour.

Iconic ‘Must-see’ Visits

A visit to Cape Town is not complete without a trip to the top of Table Mountain. Visiting Robben Island and the Castle of Good Hope are also popular historical sites to see.

Wildlife

You can go on a local safari, cage dive with sharks, do some whale watching in season and also take a trip to seal island to explore some of the wildlife the area has to offer.

Adventure

If you are feeling even more adventurous, take a sky dive over the city, paraglide, enjoy the many hiking trails and take a surfing lesson to master the waves.

Leisure

Alternatively you can just soak up the sun on one of the many exquisite beaches or go on a wine tasting tour in the magnificent Cape Winelands.

About the Destination

Interns stay at the Cape Town Loft (www.capetownloft.com), the accommodation is self-catering. The only meal included in the accommodation package is the Friday lunch at the Greenpop office!

The newly built shared apartment has a majestic view of Table Mountain and is perfectly positioned in one of the most beautiful cities in the world! It is walking distance from shops, transport hubs & tourist attractions. 

The Loft offers a range of exciting services that you will have full access to and that you will be familiarized with on your arrival. If you have any questions, please do ask your Greenpop internship coordinator.

Weekends are usually a good time for tourist activities where you can enjoy the beach during the Summer time, as well as some really unique adventures such as cage shark diving, paragliding, kite-surfing, and taking a wine tasting tour through Cape Town’s beautiful winelands.

Feedback from our volunteers

Adam Tuckman, USA

Because Greenpop is still a young company, interns get to do a lot of varied tasks, and you get to experience a lot. Probably the most important thing that I learned was to be confident in my ability and that I’ll be able to succeed at most jobs with enough time and experience. Being in Cape Town made it an international experience. Being there has definitely broadened my horizons and it has been very intellectually stimulating.

Meghan Macdonald, USA

My internship has been amazingly special. From taking part in the plant days, to enjoying the great office vibe, to learning so much about what it takes to run a small business, to being able to give back to the great city of Cape Town... I was so lucky to be part of the Greenpop team.
