HBUFC Ubuntu is our internship and international volunteering programme. Through it we offer unpaid internships and volunteering in various projects, through contracting with volunteers from abroad (largely Europe and the USA currently).

Ubuntu informs and advises the volunteers and tries to find one or more projects in HBUFC, other organisations in Hout Bay, or the broader Cape Town area for the volunteers, taking into account the needs and abilities of the volunteers. Volunteers must be 18 years or over, and you will work together with our local teachers and other volunteers. The minimum length of stay is 3 months.

Areas of opportunity:

Fitness or Conditioning coaching
● Sports coaching (football, basketball, boxing, cricket, sports science)
● Office admin and support
● Social media and website development
● Tutoring and academic support
● Working with social programmes such as aftercares and orphanages

We charge a fixed amount to cover all Ubuntu expenses.
