Think Twice education and counselling internship:
Spend between eight to ten weeks in a local Cape Town township primary or secondary school, helping the children with their daily problems. Be prepared for exhausting evenings and long mornings but an ultimate feeling of satisfaction, knowing that you have changed these children's lives for the better.
Think Twice has three main counselling internship projects, each non-governmental and part of the charity organisation. The first project is an Early Childhood Developmental program, targeting children as young as four years old to participate in workshops, play activities and aftercare programs. The second course is for high school students, which runs during school hours in the school grounds. This program targets teens and young adults with its HIV/AIDS, relationships and peer pressure workshops and talks. Finally, Think Twice offers workshops for parents and adult caregivers, covering subjects which relate to their individual situations.

South African Human Rights Commission internship:
These twelve weeks in the Human Rights Commission in South Africa will let you experience the hustle and bustle in the bureau for yourself! This internship in Cape Town gives you unprecedented access to the SAHRC.
Join the team as you investigate the human rights issues in this burgeoning democracy. Investigate the inner workings of the legislative capital in one of two types of internships. The first involves a legislative internship, where you will work directly with the Parliamentary offices of the SAHRC, dealing with purely legislative matters such as researching bills for Parliament, writing official policy papers and submitting them.
