ABOUT
This Child and Youth Care Centre takes care of 22 boys and 12 girls. Currently, the organisation provides full-time residential care for children between the ages of 5-19 years.

The centre is registered with the Department of Social Development and all children receive counselling, education, and life skills and sport-based programs. It is a full-time home for the children, who have all endured extreme abuse and trauma.

The centre operates 365 days a year, including over holidays, where they need volunteers who can assist in providing stimulating activities for the children.

Many children are fluent in three languages, namely English, Afrikaans and Xhosa – all children receive schooling in either English or Afrikaans and understand English as a medium of communication.

This internship focuses mainly on providing care in the forms of therapy, education and life-skills to vulnerable children that are traumatised and have behavioural problems. It can be challenging to work here, but this is nevertheless a great opportunity if you love to work with children and are driven to assist those most in need of help.

NEEDS
The organisation needs support from enthusiastic interns or trainees who can improve services to the children with their social background and social skills. This internship is ideal for groups of students who wish to do their internship together. Areas of study which would be appropriate for this internship are:

  • Child Care
  • Pedagogic Studies
  • Social Work
  • Psychology
  • Any other related social studies

GUIDANCE AND SUPERVISION
Volunteers will be offered professional guidance throughout your period of internship at this organisation from the social workers linked to it. You will also be supported by our Khaya coordinators, who look after you outside of your working hours.

VOLUNTEER TASKS

There are endless opportunities for you to apply to the ongoing needs of the organisation and the children, and make the most out of your learning experience.

Usually you will be picked up to go to the Township at 08.30 in the morning and you will arrive back in the volunteer house arround 16.00 in the afternoon.

Freizeitaktivitäten

The Eastern Cape and the surroundings of Port Elizabeth show a large variety of natural beauty and make PE a great central place to visit the variety of South Africa. To the East you will find the Wild coast (former Transkei and Ciskei) which is mostly rural and undeveloped, but closer you will find Addo Elephant Park and great coastal villages such as Port Alfred. To the North you will find the great Karoo; a semi desert area with wide open spaces, large nature areas and long open roads with historical places such as Graaff Reinet, the Baviaanskloof Wilderness and much more. To the East towards Cape Town, you will be amazed by the Tsitsikamma National Park, holiday villages such as Plettenberg Bay, Knysna and natures Valley or the surf mecca of Jeffrey’s Bay. This gives you plenty to see and visit while you are here.

During the weekends or after work there are a few beautiful places in Port Elizabeth as well that you can visit. Such as SAMREC, where you have the biggest penguin colony in the world, Sardinia bay, or catch a boat and go sandboarding on the Sunday river.

Schlafsaal Einzelzimmer
Verpflegung

Our full time cook will provide all meals at the volunteer house on a daily basis. This means you will be able to enjoy great South African home cooked meals, learn how to cook some of these specialties and have a House Mother to comfort you when needed. Our cook is a lady with a warm heart and even bigger embrace for those that need it and she will look after the house and the meals to provide the best possible.

We believe in participation, so volunteers will not be sitting back and get served, they still need to help her cook at times, chop vegetables, clean dishes and warm up the food for dinner themselves.

Our cook will create weekly menus offering breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as alternate meals like stews, curries, stir-fry, soups, pastas and other wholesome options. Meals will be prepared and cooked from Monday to Friday, where on weekends volunteers will only have to heat up a meal or make their own similar meals.

There is free coffee, tea and cordial juice available at any time. For breakfast you will have toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal and/or eggs. For lunch you can have sandwiches with cheese, marmalade, cold meats or other spreads. Please tell our coordinators about any wishes, vegetarian wishes and allergies concerning food.
