About the Program

The Business Administration Program affords young people the opportunity to explore South Africa while imparting skills and expertise in much needed developing communities. Not only do applicants get to immerse themselves in local culture, but explore areas such as the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town. Interns are able to offer their services in an office environment, working at NGO’s, human rights offices etc.

Qualifications Criteria

We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise, experience or interest in human rights, with an emphasis on social and economic rights. All interns would need to demonstrate that they are committed to human rights issues, be fluent in written and spoken English, and be computer literate. Interns would need to commit to a minimum of 3 days per week over a minimum of 4 weeks, with full time working hours, with some flexibility.

Interns would preferably bring their own laptops (if computer work is envisioned) and would be contactable by cell phone.

We currently make use of volunteers and interns in five main capacities, depending on the skills, experience and interest of the applicant, the current needs of the organisation, and the availability of a supervisor for the work required.

1. Advocacy Research and Support

We would require interns with the equivalent of a masters’ level degree, or someone currently enrolled for such a degree. Please note that we do not use our interns/volunteers in direct advocacy work, which we believe requires contextual experience, but utilise such interns/volunteers in research, analysis, document development, logistics for meetings and events etc.

2. Media and Materials Development

While graduates would be very welcome, many undergraduates would be suitable for aspects of this work. We would require volunteers or interns with strong computer skills, and at the very least a high level of proficiency in MS Office and internet-based research; communications, public relations, photographic, website, social media and/ or public media experience.

3. Legal Research and Support

We would require interns with a law degree or who are senior law students, and who have strong research, analytical, writing and presentation skills.

4. Community Outreach

We require interns with a strong human rights ethos, knowledge of the law, adult education and/or community development experience to assist in activities and events in communities. As community work is complex, we prefer mature applicants. Undergraduates may be able to assist in support capacities.

5. Administrative and Logistics Support

While graduates would be very welcome, many undergraduates would be suitable for aspects of this work. They would need to be prepared to be involved in data capture and analysis, filing and resource management, materials compilation, events preparation and organisation, communication with stakeholders etc. We are looking for applicants who are especially efficient, organised and methodical in their work, with a good understanding of systems and logistics.

6. Fundraising (Administrative Support, Work on Specific Projects and Events)

While graduates would be very welcome, many undergraduates would be suitable for aspects of this work. We would require interns or volunteers to have some experience in a fundraising environment, for example, an alumni or development office, or have some experience in event planning. We are looking for applicants who are especially efficient, organised and methodical in their work, with the ability to do desk top research, and who have strong communication and presentation skills.

7. Human Resources

While graduates would be very welcome, many undergraduates would be suitable for aspects of this work. Interns or volunteers with knowledge of HR processes would be required. We require applicants who are especially efficient and organised and methodical in their work, with a good understanding of HR systems.

Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!

History

STAY AFRICA (previously known as SASTS Working Adventures) was set up in 1972 to provide affordable travel opportunities for South African students. It was the travel division of NUSAS, the National Union of South African Students, whose activities took root in the days of Apartheid. STAY AFRICA has played an integral role in facilitating student and youth travel for over 40 years and is well equipped to help students realize their travel dreams. Working with reputable and internationally recognized partners and being members of international associations. STAY AFRICA programs are run in accordance with guidelines put in place by these international organisations. Over the past 11 years, STAY AFRICA has branched out to include exciting opportunities for foreign travelers to experience South Africa by implementing Work South Africa, Volunteer South Africa, Groups and High School South Africa. 

Volunteer Programs

There are a vast number of interesting volunteer projects available and most of them are in the local communities surrounding and in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Volunteers can make a valuable contribution in many different facets of childcare, teaching, social, environment and medical placements in and around Cape Town. Whilst on the STAY AFRICA volunteer program, participants will stay with local host families and eat the local meals prepared by the family. They also have the option of staying in the City in a Volunteer House and eat in a local restaurant as well as use local minibus transport to their volunteer project. As a not for profit organisation run by staff of the local communities, we have extensive knowledge of the various communities of Cape Town and South Africa which enables us to offer first hand experience and advice of volunteering in the local communities. STAY AFRICA will provide a real insight into Cape Town’s culture, history, landscape through orientation and local community placement and provide the opportunity for genuine interaction with the local people.

STAY AFRICA's aim is to offer quality, affordable volunteering experiences and the opportunity to be immersed in a local culture for clients interested in discovering Cape Town. As a non-profit organisation, STAY AFRICA is dedicated to providing young people, from all over the world, the opportunity to come to South Africa and experience our cultures and people. 

Respect for the locals, their cultures, religion and environment are essential to operate a successful volunteer program. All our Volunteers placed in the local community have to abide by our Code of Conduct by respecting the local culture.  

Volunteers also have the opportunity to explore the scenic beauty of South Africa whereby we offer tours of Cape Town and Western Cape. Local guides and agencies are used with the understanding to offer a true cultural experience. 

Community Development 

STAY AFRICA works very closely with the local communities of Cape Town, to provide sustainable on-going partnerships. As a not for profit organisation, the program costs goes toward running of the program. Subject to available funding, STAY AFRICA assists community projects with donations to assist with various programs such as feeding scheme, a laptop was donated to a Daycare centre in the Farming community, end of year school functions, sports equipment for Schools etc. 

Volunteers in the local community are placed with Community host families, within walking distance from their volunteer project. Host families are paid a stipend to cover meals and accommodation, thus STAY AFRICA giving back to the local communities by placement of volunteers at both project and host family.  

All of our families we use are local host families and community projects started by the local people of the community that has identified a need within the local communities. Volunteers are placed at much needed community projects, NGO’S, public schools, Women run day care centres, Orphanages etc. All community projects are screened prior to placement of volunteers and factors such as economic responsibility, environmental, social responsibility and safety of the client are considered prior to approving local community projects for placement of our volunteers. In many cases volunteer assistance to these projects will assist the local people via ongoing placement of volunteers at both host family and projects.
