Get Involved!

If you’re looking for a way to build your career or help others, a great place to start is by getting involved at ASAF!

Your involvement in ASAF will provide you with opportunities to gain crucial professional experience, soft skills, social competence, international exposure and leadership skills.

Your volunteering can help to deepen the status of the young generation in Africa as key participants in the delivery of Africa's educational development targets and goals. 

Whether you participate locally — through regional assemblies — or by representing ASAF's voice online, the community around ASAF gives you an opportunity to build connections with colleagues and leaders on a international level. 


How to volunteer and participate in ASAF’s work:

Become a member and you can become involved in one of the task forces, work on the development of ASAF and help establish action plans for the specific task forces. Alternatively, volunteer and organize your own project/event by applying for the ASAF projects (more information will be provided soon). Share your expertise and knowledge and discuss current and relevant issues with other stakeholders! There are numerous great opportunities to become engaged within ASAF.
