We can facilitate event management volunteer placements in a wide range of NGO’s operating here in Cape Town. The NGOs we partner with focus on the promotion of human rights, equal access to education, economic development in rural communities, youth development, social work and the prevention of violence and crime. All of the organisations we work with would benefit hugely from volunteers lending their time and skills to assist with arranging fundraising events. This is the perfect opportunity to use your creativity to help improve the lives of local communities, and as a volunteer in this field you will get to work alongside some truly inspiring people who have dedicated their lives to helping others.ENQUIRE NOW

Yes for me I think it was the placement! I couldn’t have found this placement myself, and even my supervisor said she wouldn’t have wanted to hire interns who just came by themselves. She only hires interns that come through an agency. That way, she only needs to focus on my internship and the work at hand, and not the many other things that come along with doing an internship abroad. Like my accommodation, safety, social events and making friends, were all handled by Bridging Gaps.
We have worked very hard to streamline our process to make your experience easy, fun and highly rewarding personally and professionally. Flick through the steps below, or read about our process in more detail.
Getting your dream internship all starts with you saying hello! Just pop your details into our enquiry form and we'll reach out to schedule a conversation with you that we call a 'discovery call'.
In your discovery call, you can ask us any questions you still have. We'll talk about your options in the career fields you've told us you're interested in to help you imagine your placement and decide if our service is right for you.
If everything sounds good to you, complete your application to put into words your dream programme. This forms the basis of the 'design' of your customised placement and will be the primary framework against which we validate potentially suitable opportunities.
We maintain a large and varied network of the best organisations in Cape Town. We will identify the best potential fits for your programme goals and preferences and reach out on your behalf to assess those organisations for suitability (learn about their current projects and initiatives).
Once you've confirmed which placement offer you prefer, we'll start helping you plan the rest of your trip. We'll book your accommodation, help with your travel arrangements and provide extensive advice and information on how to get ready for your time in Cape Town. Your Bridging Gaps mentor will be on hand to make sure you're fully prepared for your placement.
Finally, every member of our team will move mountains to make sure you get what you came for and MORE! It's essential to us that you're safe, you're learning and growing in confidence and developing the most important skills for your future career.
