Volunteer Opportunities

Ambassador for GCA at Reston Farmers Market:

Represent Global Camps Africa at the Lake Anne Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, May through November.  Staff our information table, tell market visitors about Global Camps Africa, and sell handmade South African crafts to raise funds that support our programs.  Volunteers should be available from 7:30am to 12:30 pm to set up the table, stay through the market and put things away at the end.  Volunteers should be comfortable dealing with the public, able to carry 25 pounds, and must be at least 14 years of age unless accompanied by an adult.  Job may be broken into 2 shifts or shared by 2-3 volunteers.

Pack “Care Packages” for Campers:

We need volunteers 3 times a year to make “care packages” of small toiletries for HIV affected campers in South Africa.  You may collect donations of sample or hotel sized items or use those we have on hand.  Perfect for individuals or small groups.  Under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.  

Package and Tag South African Crafts for Fundraising:

Volunteers are needed 2-3 times a year to package and tag handmade South African jewelry and crafts that will be sold at fundraisers to support our camps and Youth Clubs.  Perfect for individuals or small groups. Must be 13 years of age unless accompanied by an adult.  

Create Your Own Fundraiser to Benefit GCA:

There are many ways that you can help us raise much needed funds to support our programs for HIV/AIDS affected children and youth in South Africa.  Commemorate an important occasion or honor someone special by making a donation or requesting contributions in lieu of gifts.  Turn an athletic event into a fundraiser by creating your own personal fundraising webpage and requesting sponsorships (It’s easy.  We’ll show you how).   Host a gathering of friends, show our video, and set out a donation basket.  Hold a bake sale, car wash, dog wash, or dress-down day at work or school.  Whatever you think your friends and family will enjoy.  The sky’s the limit and we’ll help you by providing advice and informational materials, and showing you how to create your own fundraising web page.
