Retreat Volunteers: 2023 South Africa

Our registration for the Thrive 2023 South Africa Retreat is officially open! We are hoping to host 80 global workers in Cape Town, South Africa in the Fall. We are now ready to begin putting together our 2023 South Africa Volunteer Team. We are praying that God will build up a volunteer team of 30 women who are willing to serve the attendees at this retreat.

2023 South Africa Retreat

Cape Town, South Africa
The President Hotel
$4250 USD
Registration Closed Registration closing Sept 25!
The estimated cost for a Thrive volunteer for the 2023 South Africa retreat is $4250. Volunteer retreat costs are based on a shared double room, travel expenses, all meals, meeting expenses, gratuities and other miscellaneous expenses. All additional costs for food, etc. while traveling to and from the retreat location are personal expenses that are yours to cover.

Many volunteers choose to raise support for their retreat experience, and you are welcome to do this as well. You can receive more information regarding retreat fundraising following your application.

Retreat Volunteer Schedule:

Before the official retreat dates, volunteers and staff will spend time onsite preparing for the arrival of our guests. This preparation will include training, getting to know each other, and setting up gifts, materials, etc. After the retreat ends, we’ll stay two additional days (optional, but recommended) to reflect and recuperate from the emotional and physical exhaustion before returning home. These days prove to be very beneficial for downloading and processing your experience at the retreat, and they provide an opportunity to see a bit of the area.
