Young people making a difference
Change someone’s life
and change your own too
At Operation Smile South Africa, we value the energy and compassion of young people. We believe you really can change the world!
With more than 900 Student Clubs and associations around the world, our Student Programme helps to build awareness, raise funds and educate young people about our core values of commitment, leadership, volunteerism and philanthropy.
Volunteering with us gives you a fulfilling and unique opportunity to be exposed to different cultures, serve those who need it most, and discover things about yourself you might not have known.
