CAPETOWN / Cape Town, South Africa Project Program
Open Streets Cape Town
Open Streets Cape Town (OSCT) is a nonprofit organization that works to create a car-free space where residents can celebrate the public space that is lost due to urbanization. Roads are closed to hold Open Streets Days where communities are able to play and mingle in streets. Volunteers are essential to the success of these Open Streets Days but OSCT's volunteer program is still in the early stages of development. For this project we examined volunteerism in Cape Town, assessed OSCT’s volunteer program, and researched the efforts of other Cape Town organizations. We developed two informational documents – a social media handbook and a volunteer program handbook – to serve as guides for Open Streets and similar volunteer dependent organizations.
