Welcome to our Alumni Tribe

So much more than just volunteering!

Join a tribe of adventurous, likeminded individuals, sharing a common love for Africa and life changing volunteer experiences.

No matter how long it’s been, or how far away you are, you will no doubt find yourself daydreaming of being back on project. Those early morning starts, long hours in the African Sun and aching muscles, all in the name of giving back.

Not to mention the life-long friendships made with fellow volunteers and project staff from all around the world. People you would probably never have met had it not been for your volunteering adventure!

That’s exactly why we have created the Volunteer Encounter Alumni Tribe. An opportunity to stay connected with people who appreciate the need to travel with a purpose and whose lives, we hope, have been positively impacted in some small way by volunteering with us.

Get Involved

You’re not alone in your desires to have that adventure again, and many do. It’s always a privilege welcoming back returning volunteers.

As the famous Ernest Hemingway said, “If you have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa” And who doesn’t want to see magic again and again and again?

There is truly something special about convincing others to share in your adventure and getting them to experience that which has stolen your heart and opened your eyes.

Witnessing the joy of a friend or loved one seeing their first African animal or breathtaking sunset reminds us of our first time. You become ambassadors for these experiences and encouragement to others still to start their adventure.


By Signing up to our Alumni Tribe you now have the opportunity to achieve all of the above. Volunteer again at your favorite project, or try out something new.

Encourage others to travel with a purpose and start their adventure and earn cash commissions to put toward your return.
