The city of Cape Town is one of South Africa’s first European settlements. Stunning views, mixed culture, and vibrant energy fuels this city making Cape Town an excellent place to teach English. Teaching Mathematics, Science or Technology will greatly increase chances of landing a paying job, as there remains a shortage in these fields. Volunteer opportunities are available, and some offer room and board, which often is a welcome exchange for the hefty monthly living costs of $1,000.
Ashley wanted to explore South Africa, and found volunteering in Cape Town to be a rewarding experience that lasts a lifetime.
