Company (11-100 employees)
Tenteleni is a youth-driven, volunteer-run charity that supports the development of young people in the UK and Africa in collaboration with local partners. We provide young people with international volunteering placements in schools and local organisations in South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania for 8 weeks during the University summer period.
Tenteleni’s values are centered on ethical and responsible volunteering. We work closely with long-standing in-country partners to meet the needs of the local community while developing our own young people. We are committed to developing the skills and employability of our own volunteers and the national volunteers we work alongside. Our alumni have gone on to careers in social work, teaching, the charity sector and finance.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for our projects next summer
Working alongside local volunteers through our Volunteer Partnership Programme, Tenteleni volunteers work in educational placements as teaching assistants; assisting with English language learning and youth issues. Volunteers are also encouraged to facilitate and support extra-curricular activities for learners, and links between local Non-Governmental Organisations and their placements.
