Who we are

Over 3000 interns supported in Cape Town in 17 years

Why choose VACorps?

VACorps proudly maintains its title as the top internship program in Africa from 2019. We are one of the most highly-ranked internship programs in the world because we have designed an in-country experience that involves a high level of professional and cultural engagement.

We love hosting interns in our incredibly beautiful city and want to facilitate one of the greatest adventures of your lifetime.

Based in Cape Town, South Africa

We specialize in internships in only one amazing city – Cape Town, South Africa (see pictures here). We stand out because our team is based in Cape Town and not diluted in different cities or countries.

Award-winning internship program

VACorps is the recipient of multiple awards and in 2023, GoAbroad.com honored us with the designation as the world’s top program provider. Since 2019, GoOverseas and GoAbroad.com have rated VACorps as the #1 internship program provider in Africa.

Customized internship placements

We customize all internship placements to ensure that your internship matches your interests. Our Cape Town internship database includes a variety of different professional fields and all internships are English-speaking placements.

Thriving, diverse community

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

Support with program housing

Your program housing options will allow you to 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.

Prominent academic affiliations

VACorps is partnered with many academic and organizational partners and these affiliations are a further testament to our commitment to quality assurance.


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.
