Student Internships

Rape Crisis accepts student interns wishing to complete academic placements or holiday internships.  If it is an academic placement we ask the university that the student belongs to to contact us and make formal arrangements to supervise the student.  We offer placements to students in the fields of psychology, social work, communications, law and politics, with qualified professional staff available to mentor students.

We also offer holiday internships for which we require the student to have some training and experience in an equivalent organisation in their country.  As proof of this we require detailed curriculum vitae and a letter of reference from that organisation which should provide both a character reference and proof of training and hours of voluntary service.  Please note that we do not pay our interns.  For any form of internship contact our Operations Manager, Nazma Hendricks, at nazma@rapecrisis.org.za.
