Care & Community in Senegal

Based in the picturesque town of St Louis in northern Senegal you will have the opportunity to experience a taste of Senegalese culture and contribute to the local community.

You will live with a host family and your days will be spent doing a variety of different activities at a centre for street children or at our summer kindergarten programme. In the afternoons, you will work closely with volunteers on the Building & French project to renovate and decorate a local school or centre. With the help of your fellow volunteers you will be able to transform the building, providing a fresh and colourful environment for the children.

At 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.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.

Every year, thousands of High School Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work. If you want to know more about their achievements, read our 2016 High School Specials Impact Report.
