Doing an internship this summer in Cape Town was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  More specifically, doing this internship through Connect-123 was the perfect way for me to experience all that Cape Town has offer and at the same time complete an internship that will hold me in good stead for the future. The Connect-123 staff was always very helpful and were ready to offer advice or just have a casual chat with you whenever you stopped by at the office.

I spent my summer working at a Non- Governmental organisation not too far from where I lived. Admittedly, it was a bit slow to start, but after about a week, I got into the flow of things and started to thoroughly enjoy working there. I worked with a diverse group of people, which added to the great experience as I headed a number of projects, set up various meetings and visited local townships as part of the internship. The people at the office were very friendly and helpful which made working there all the better.

Cape Town is a beautiful city and there is always something to do, as there is an activity for everyone. If you are into food, the arts, drama, sports or just relaxing and having drinks with friends then Cape Town has all that covered. I was never bored during my stay in Cape Town as the Connect-123 team were constantly organising different activities that we could partake in.

I would definitely recommend doing an internship in Cape Town through Connect-123 as it was an interesting and beneficial experience that will only enhance ones chances it today’s tough job market.

There is truly no way to do justice to the eye-opening nature of my trip to Cape Town. I knew that it would be a great experience, but I had no idea how much the city would infect me with its allure and make me regret that impending flight home! Everyone at Connect-123 was more than accommodating. They were there every step of the way, which proved vital to my...

My internship in Cape Town, South Africa last summer, the Summer of 2010 was an extraordinary experience.  The social interactions and cultural observation were invaluable.  Not only was the cultural transformation occurring from the World Cup occurring, but I was able to participate in some very socially valuable activities. My day-to-day activities in South Africa consisted of going to the University of Cape Town Law School.  Specifically, I worked under...

I had just qualified as a solicitor in Ireland and I decided to take a few months off and go travelling. I had always wanted to volunteer abroad and through a friend at home I made contact with Connect-123. From the start Connect-123 was extremely helpful. They found a position for me with an organisation founded to deal with the high levels of sexual harassment in South Africa’s rural farming...

After deciding to take a year off before work after I completed law school in May of 2009, I decided to look at legal internship opportunities in Cape Town, South Africa. Connect-123 found an internship for me where I could use my legal writing and research skills—as well as work in an area of law in which I have much interest but rare opportunities to work with in my future...

My experience with Connect-123 was wonderful.  I would recommend interning in Cape Town and the program to any law student (or other student).  Planning my summer abroad, the staff at Connect-123 was fabulous.  With the tough legal market, I knew I needed a placement that would provide me with substantive and practical legal research and writing experience.  After conveying that sentiment to my assigned Connect-123 team member, she sought out...

Connect-123 is the most organized and efficient program that I have ever been a part of. They put a great amount of time and thought into every detail, helping you instantly feel at home. The program’s small numbers and planned group outings create an intimate, fun environment and opportunity to meet new people. My internship applied to my studies more than I ever anticipated, and I was given tasks and...
