Our Staff

African Sky is an all-volunteer organization, and we work with a number of schools, community groups, specialists, and global citizens seeking meaningful experiences and personal growth through international engagement. Currently we could use some help from people who could help with legal questions and counsel (as they emerge), project directors, and people who could contribute to our Financial Advisory Committee. That said, regardless of your area of expertise or interest, if you're interested in working with us, please let us know what you're thinking!
