About the Program
An internship with This Life is a two-year program for high school graduates from disadvantaged backgrounds to begin their university education in a major of their choice. Previous graduates of our internship program have joined This Life or have gone to work at other NGOs, at banks or in hospitality.
What we do
Working at This Life in the department that fits with their major, interns develop practical skills in a real world setting. In turn, this benefits us as interns contribute fresh ideas to our programs and assist the organization in achieving our goals. Interns also attend English language and computer skills courses and gain exposure to different professional functions as part of our team.
As part of this program, we also provide a basic stipend, health insurance and a petrol and phone allowance. At the completion of the two year program, we offer interns full time employment, providing the financial means for them to complete their university studies.
Outcomes for all of This Life’s programs can be found in our Annual Report.
