Described by SA’s media as ‘The Uber of volunteering’ Better SA’s Hop on Hop off volunteer bus service is taking all the hassle out of volunteering. The service is free of charge and each experience is fully facilitated, ensuring that volunteers make the biggest impact in the time they have available. The only requirement from the volunteer is that they book a spot on one of our buses, arrive and hop on. Better SA does the rest.
The Hop on Hop off volunteer bus service runs every Saturday morning, between 8am and 12pm. When volunteers arrive at any of our bus hubs they are greeted by Better SA team leaders who brief all on the community and organization being visited. Once at the organization, each volunteer is handed a pack complete with a step by step guide on how to complete the activity and all supplies needed. Volunteers spend 90 mins at the organization before boarding the bus and heading back to their cars. It does not get easier than that.
Volunteer activities range from teaching computer skills, playing educational games and typing up hand written CV’s for the unemployed to visiting the elderly, painting inspirational murals and environmental clean ups.
