Join Surfpop for a salty adventure of a lifetime! You will volunteer your time and skills to coach and mentor children from townships around Cape Town. We will teach you how to ride waves and will take you on off the beaten track tours to explore all the natural beauty of the Cape Peninsula.  

As a volunteer you will help Surfpop with the program activities with the children. You will share the stoke with them, while providing them with real future opportunities. For you to take on that role, Surfpop wants to share the stoke of surfing with you, and have you standing up on a wave, riding and carving some lines. You will share your skills and love for surfing during the surf sessions with the children. When you are not coaching the children in the water, you will be helping them in our classroom. As a mentor you will help them with their homework and English, guide them with their online Maths courses, design and facilitate fun and interactive life skills workshops, help prepare vocational workshops, and share your unique skills with the children and with Surfpop.
