Program Description:
SIT Study Abroad South Africa: Online Internship in Social Justice and Activism (Summer Online)

Gain professional experience working remotely with a nonprofit organization, study apartheid, and learn about the history, ideas, values, and practice of social justice in South Africa.

The remote online internship seminar will help you understand the dynamics of human rights advocacy and the history of apartheid in South Africa, a country emerging from legally enforced racial discrimination and economic and political exclusion. You will also learn the ethics of human rights advocacy and research during a four-week intensive online internship that will give you professional experience working with an international organization. SIT uses extensive networks to facilitate the placement process. Organizations we have worked with deal with issues including gender, community mobilization, public health, migration, media and advocacy, and environmental sustainability. You’ll attend weekly online assessment meetings with your academic director or internship coordinator and keep a work journal to reflect on your experiences, challenges, and professional achievements.
