Founded in 2011, CorpsAfrica provides the opportunity for Africans to be “Peace Corps Volunteers” in their own countries. CorpsAfrica Volunteers participate in Pre-Service Training, where they are educated on Human Centered Design training as an approach to development and learn about the variety of work NGOs are doing in their country. Volunteers then move to high-poverty communities, where they facilitate meetings to help local people determine priority needs and implement projects that address those needs. The Volunteers are then expected to perform a comprehensive impact evaluation analysis to serve as a model for future CorpsAfrica Volunteers and their projects. CorpsAfrica aims to create a culture of public service within developing nations by allowing participants to apply their skills and energy toward helping their fellow citizens overcome extreme poverty.
