We are one of the finest internship programs in the world because we have designed an in-country experience that involves a high level of professional and cultural engagement. More importantly, we love hosting interns in our incredibly beautiful city and want to facilitate one of the greatest adventures of your lifetime. The following are the unique highlights of our internship program:
- When you join VACorps, you join a diverse community of program participants. We offer a series of optional weekly activities and excursions that will help you network and socialize with other VACorps interns.
- Your program housing options will allow you live in your own room while sharing a house with other program participants. The program housing set-up is responsible for giving the program a “family-like” atmosphere and you will meet many like-minded adventurers.
- Why spend a small fortune traveling to England, Australia or New Zealand when you can participate in a much more affordable internship program in South Africa. Living costs in Cape Town are considerably cheaper than these more mainstream English-speaking international internship destinations.
“You need this. You need it because the important thing you can do as a youngish adult/early 20-something/pre-professional/student is to travel, do something totally out of the ordinary, and force yourself to consider who you are in a new context. Most important learning experience possible. Don’t make excuses regarding income, distance, or long-term plans. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” — From our interview with VACorps alumnus, Mindy Spyker (’12).
