Grace Foundation is very fortunate to work with a diverse group of talented students and professionals who are as committed as we are to making a difference. It is only thanks to their dedication that we have already achieved so much. We have a diverse group of volunteers from Nigeria, other African countries and from around the world, who work with us either online or in person. See how you can become a volunteer or, as we prefer to call them, Knowledge Philanthropist!

Mentors and Career Coaches are senior managers and industry leaders who dedicate their time and specialist expertise by offering advice and guidance to a young person in finding a career path that’s right for them.

Mentors will also provide guidance to emerging entrepreneurs and innovators.

Online or Local Volunteers work with us from all over the world. Online volunteers remain in their own countries and support areas such as editing, content development, blog posts, marketing and promotion. Local volunteers become directly involved in the delivery of our training and the activities, for example by organizing community events.

Teaching Assistants gain critical career skills by directly supporting the work of teachers in public primary and secondary schools, including undertaking administrative tasks and supporting groups of children while they study. Teaching Assistants commit to a minimum of one school term, hold a university or polytechnic degree, and have strong academic credentials.

A modest stipend will be provided for transportation and meals.
