On going projects
Come to South Africa and Volunteer at one of our many ongoing projects, all based around the naval area of Simons Town. On your Internship you can be helping in a Township with everything from working in a school to painting and decorating. Alternatively you can work in a design studio.
What is the difference between Volunteering and Internships?
If you volunteer on any of the above projects, you will definitely need a passion and interest in your chosen field. It wont matter if you are not making this your chosen career but you will need to have a genuine interest. We understand that you don’t mind what you do, and will try anything, at least once! We like our Volunteering students to come from all backgrounds and be of all ages. So long as you are over 18 years of age, we will welcome you. Students can come from as little as one month to one academic year, although most stay from between 1 to 3 months. If you are staying for a lengthier period of time then you could consider taking on two different Volunteering Projects. Internships are usually unpaid work towards gaining valuable experience in your chosen career. You should be studying this at University or taking a Sabbatical to gain more experience.
