PEP Africa accepts volunteers from different backgrounds with varying skills and experiences. We accept up to two volunteers per Country. As our working languages are English or French, volunteers must possess advanced listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. PEP Africa recognizes the contribution and crucial perspectives that individuals from marginalized communities bring to our team. People including, but not limited to, those from the following groups are encouraged to apply: Indigenous peoples, women, mothers, single parents, immigrants, protected persons and refugees, people of color, lesbian, bisexual, gay, two-spirit, transgender, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, non-binary, agender, genderqueer, and questioning people, intersex people, people living with disabilities, and those marginalized based on class, caste, and HIV status. PEP Africa is committed to recruiting a diverse cohort of interns/volunteers and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.

PEP Africa is a pro-youth organization and, as such, relies on active volunteerism. We require that all volunteers check and respond to emails at least a few times each week, take on specific tasks and contribute substantially to discussions and organizational decisions. The continuation of volunteerism depends on the satisfactory fulfillment of these roles, and volunteers are required to apply for renewal as needs are.

As PEP Africa relies on active volunteerism volunteering, volunteers must devote a minimum of 10-15 hours per week to PEP Africa activities, which includes responding to emails, contributing to online discussions, and taking part in our planned activities. Please note that most of our work is done virtually and occurs via an interactive online platform called Slack and through email and Skype.

Overall, the work of a volunteer focuses on advocacy at community, national and international levels. Specifically, volunteers attend workshops, conferences, and meetings to advocate for youth sexual reproductive health rights (SRHR), promote education for sustainable development (ESDs), and community-driven development activities. We also develop advocacy strategies, create publications, and organize training on specific issues such as youth rights and youth development.

Please note that we are committed to diversity and only accept a small number of individuals for volunteerism each year. If you have any questions about the volunteering process, contact us at If you are a qualified candidate with a disability, please contact us at If you require reasonable accommodation during your stay abroad, apply here form.

PEP Africa may provide interns/volunteers with a stipend and reimbursements for a portion of the expenses causally related to their internship. Please note PEP Africa will NOT provide relocation or housing assistance. Our yearly internship/volunteer runs from May to August. For students in the quarter system, the internship will run from June to September. Interns will be required to work 40 hours a week in any of our offices or project site.

The application opened in January and will close in February. We will not accept late applications.
