Students will learn how culture affects leadership;

students will gain an understanding of different cultures through the experiences and stories of our guest speakers.
Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.
EduAfrica and African Impact are two arms of the same company, working together to offer fun, safe and structured placements for volunteers to contribute to responsible projects in partnership with local communities and conservation efforts. We ensure that our presence on the ground is in the best interest of the communities we work with. We won't run a project unless the community not only wants us there, but has ownership of the project.
