President's Award: Gold Residential Program

EDGE of AFRICA is a proud partner of the President’s Award Program in South Africa. The four components of Sport, Community Service, an Expedition and Skills and Interests are designed to provide a balanced experience of life.

EDGE of AFRICA hosts students in Knysna, South Africa who are embarking on their residential placement as part of the President’s Gold Award Program.

Students are able to complete the requirements of undertaking a shared purposeful activity with a group who is not their usual colleagues or friends in an unfamiliar setting for 5 days.

During your time with us, you will be volunteering on a variety of projects with clear aims and objectives. To take a look at what to expect from your Residential Program, download our latest report here

You will be staying at our volunteer accommodation in Knysna with our volunteer coordinator and your project leader. We provide 3 healthy meals per day and all your project related costs are included in the program fee. We can collect you from George airport, or you can take a bus directly to Knsyna. If a number of you are travelling from the same town, we can assist with organizing group transport.

We have President’s Award group intakes throughout the year mainly during the holidays so please contact us for more information.
