Anybody who wants to have life-changing experiences and is at least 18 years old - there’s no age limit to participate!

🌍 No experience necessary

You don’t have to be a professional in any certain area - your resumé here is your knowledge, as well as your ability to create content that sells destination Africa.

🌍 Opportunities for all language levels

You don’t necessarily need to speak a specific language, but each host requires a certain proficiency level in a given language - including English. It’s also a great opportunity for you to practice another language

🌍 Travel is for everyone

We believe travel is a universal right, and we support everyone’s right to travel, no matter what their nationality, gender, age, condition, etc. Pick the assignment that best matches your skills, and chat with the host about any questions you may have.

What You Get For Scouting?

 
In exchange for your content, you get free accommodation and get benefits unique to each assignment. Obviously, new friends, learning, and connections of course!
Always Included
Accommodation in comfortable single or shared rooms.
May Include
Local transportation, experiences, local discounts, meals and more!

What is not included?

Remember that the Travel Scout Program is an exchange, not a job, so you’ll be helping a host in exchange for accommodation and other benefits! If an assignment offers payment, the details of such will be included in the assignment details.
🌍 Tickets: It’s solely the travel scout’s responsibility to arrive at and depart from their destination. So plan far enough ahead to get good discounts etc.
🌍Financial assistance: The Travel Scouts Program and our hosts are not responsible for any costs you may accrue during your stay, so plan to have enough spending money for your assignment’s duration and the places you’re traveling.
🌍Required documents: Do your research on visas, passports, travel and health insurance, and any other kind of document you need to travel, ok?
🌍Travel planning: The Travel Scouts Program is not a travel agency, so it’s up to you to find assignments that suit your skill set and plan your journey, alright? But of course, you can get your questions about The Travel Scouts Program answered by contacting our Support team via the contact page
