Intern or volunteer in Cape Town, Minimalist style
Get safely and confidently to Cape Town with our most simple, amazingly well priced internship/volunteer placement package.
Bootstrap, the Lowdown
Max Programme Duration
Value for Money
At £995, we think Bootstrap is the most competitively priced internship/volunteer placement programme in Cape Town saving you around £1000 compared to other providers.
Whilst we offer a full internship programme (Concierge), we recognise that some people don’t want anything except the placement itself; they prefer to make all of their arrangements independently and have confidence in their ability to make it happen. So that’s what Bootstrap gives you: Access to an awesome placement with a workplace mentor to help make it the best experience, and a reference letter to show to future employers and academic staff.
