Students looking to position themselves in the global workforce need to build intercultural communication skills and awareness and there is no better way than to participate in a Global Internship Program.

Student testimony: “The program helped me to get experience and opportunities to working with international organizations such as United Nations and UNHCR. …Today, I’m happy to say that I’m one of the founders of a nonprofit human rights organization …Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) of Bangladesh.”

" A group of interns and I went on an excursion to explore Cape Point. It is located at southeast corner of the Cape Peninsula; I had an unforgettable experience: Hiking on a shine and amazing morning at the very top of  Chapman's Peak, it has breathtaking views.
In my role as an intern I also wanted to understand and learn more about the challenges the homeless employees faced in their daily lives. Therefore, I prepared and presented a class about, "Lessons on Forgiveness". Visiting the Safari with other interns was an enjoyable adventure, and we could feed and hug these loving creatures. We all got elephant hugs! 
After work I used to go hiking with my friends, and as you see in the photo at the back is South Africa's majestic Table Mountain. It is one of the most visited attractions for all tourists, and it has an elevation of  3,558 ".
