GET INVOLVED

There are many ways to support us, from advising one of our TSP students to funding educational camps and excursions. Get in touch if you want to know more about how you can be a part of the mission of SAEP!

 
INTERN

Internships and student placements are a great way for aspiring professionals to gain experience and to contribute at the same time.

 

We host social work students from local and international universities for their practical placements, provide opportunities for students to research advance organisational goals while mentoring aspiring professionals.

 

Internships are mutually beneficial:  Interns inform and add value to the workplace while gaining practical experience and adding value to their personal, academic, and professional pursuits.

ADVISE

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a dynamic Tertiary Support Programme, helping students from low socio-economic backgrounds to achieve their goals of graduating with a tertiary qualification. Advisers support tertiary students in their personal and academic development through face to face meetings, joint events and electronic check ins.

 

Mentors must be graduates themselves, understand how to navigate tertiary institutions and commit to support a student for a year. Advisers and students are matched as far as possible according to educational background, career path, and other factors such as geographical location. The ultimate goal is for the students and adviser to have a meaningful, supportive relationship.
