Internships with Katelho Network

The Katleho Network Calls for Spring 2011 Internship Applications- Deadline Extended

The Katleho Network is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that connects passionate young adults with opportunities at established development organizations working in rural South Africa. Our Spring internships have the following project opportunities:
Youth Development
Community Development
Sustainable Development

Program Dates: January 20th- April 14th (12 weeks)

Program Location: Haenertsburg, South Africa

The Internship:
Interns will work on a variety of development projects (above) implemented and managed by our Partner Organizations. Interns will work approximately 20-30 hours per week, and will be given most Fridays off to accommodate optional weekend travel. Interns will also be given one week of vacation time to allow additional site seeing or travel (of course, if interns choose not to travel during this time, intern housing and transportation in Haenertsburg will remain available).

Program Cost: $3000
* Unlike many intern-placement companies, we work hard to keep administrative costs as low as possible, meaning that we can offer significantly lower program costs than our competitors (compare to Cross Cultural Solutions, which charges $6918 for internship programs of the same length, or to CIEE, which charges $14,500 for its Spring 2011 South Africa Service Learning Program). Program costs include:

Accommodation (private group house)
Ground Transportation
Food (breakfast and lunch provided on work days and during planned weekend excursions)
Pre-departure assistance
Orientation, training, and 24 hour support services
Optional weekend excursions to tourist attractions as well as "off-the-beaten-path" sites

To Apply:
Please send resume and cover letter, detailing your specific interests and qualifications, to info@katleho.org. APPLICATION PERIOD HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8TH.
