Are you looking for a last minute internship opportunity abroad? We have you covered!

Whether you are a spontaneous kind of person, or were too busy focusing on studying for exams and forgot to think about your internship placement, don’t worry, we have you covered! We always have some opportunities open for last minute nonprofit internships in Africa. 

Nonprofit Internships: Focus Areas

We have plenty of different focus areas to choose from, but one thing they all have in common is ethical organisations. We partner with grassroots non profit organisations and social enterprises who focus on doing good work in their communities. This means that whether you are looking for a marketing or events management internship, or anything in between, you will be able to have a meaningful impact in your work.

Internships Across Africa

A lot of our internships are based in Cape Town, South Africa. It’s a vibrant city which won’t give you too much culture shock, which is nice since you don’t have too much time to prepare! Cape Town has everything you need in terms of amenities, activities and social opportunities, so don’t worry if you forget some things while packing in a hurry.

We also have internship opportunities in Johannesburg, South Africa, a bustling city that will give you a real South African feel. Since it’s located so close to many cool parks and nature reserves, there are plenty of weekend excursion opportunities.

If you’re looking for an internship outside of South Africa, we have last minute opportunities open in both Ghana, in West Africa, and Zambia, next door to the famous Victoria Falls!

Flexible Start Dates

Most of our internships in Africa have flexible start dates, so that we can accommodate students from around the world with various university schedules. But generally there are only 1-2 spots for each internship, so if one catches your eye, make sure to contact us as soon as possible to see if the opportunity is still available!
