Madison joined the VACorps Program in January 2019 and participated in a Disaster and Risk Management Internship in January 2019.
“My time in Cape Town has been an experience I will never forget. I have learned so much about the culture of South Africa, I have met people from all over the world, and I have gained great professional experience that will benefit my future career. My internship site, NSRI Sea Rescue South Africa, was the perfect placement for me. The staff there were all very welcoming and helpful. They allowed me and encouraged me to get involved with the organization in any way possible. I am very thankful that I was able to intern at such a successful and well ran organization. VAC did a great job of finding the perfect internship location that met all my wants and needs. They also did a great job at connecting me with other interns and at making sure we were comfortable and settled in. They did this through orientation, taking us to our first day at our internship, planning weekly activities, and culture series. VAC and NSRI helped in creating this amazing learning experience and for all the wonderful people I have met along the way!”
