Teen volunteer helps young boy with classwork on the Care & Community project in Senegal

During your time in Senegal, you will live with a local host family and your days will be spent doing a variety of different activities at a kindergarten or centre for street children. You will spend time supporting the children in the morning and also help to renovate and decorate a local school or community centre in the afternoons. With the help of your fellow volunteers, as well as volunteers from the Building & French High School Special, you will be able to transform the building and provide a fresh and colourful environment for the children.

On the weekend you will spend time visiting the historic sites in and around St Louis. There are also social activities arranged throughout the two weeks including drum and dance lessons and a meal at a local restaurant.
