Internships are a great way to advance organizational goals while mentoring aspiring professionals. Internships are mutually beneficial. Interns inform and add value to the workplace while informing and adding value to their personal, academic, and professional pursuits.

SAEP regularly employs interns on short term contracts and actively seeks out internship opportunities for our beneficiaries.

Please email our Volunteer and Intern Co ordinator if you are looking to apply for internship, or have opportunities for our beneficiaries.


SAEP hosts volunteers from all over the world, of many different ages and backgrounds, and with an amazing variety of skills and interests. Volunteering at SAEP is a rewarding experience and a great chance to experience different cultures and ways of life.

Please read the frequently asked questions on our Volunteer page, if you have any questions that are not answered there, please contact our volunteer coordinator. Please note that all overseas volunteers must have adequate health insurance before they travel and must inform SAEP of the details of this cover before they arrive.

We are guided by our professional Board of Directors, which includes some previous programme participants and volunteers and ensures good governance and wise spending. The board is made up of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer, Deputy Treasurer and Secretary plus four general members.
