Sociology Internships in Africa

If you’re studying Sociology, or if you just have a passion for learning about societies and human connections, you might find the perfect opportunity in our sociology internships in Africa. You’ll be part of a nonprofit organisation with a social impact focus, like youth support, education, and women’s empowerment. Your role during your internship can depend on your desired focus and your skill set, but it can include helping develop stimulating activities for vulnerable youth, assisting with counselling or support sessions, or running educational workshops for teenage girls with troubled backgrounds. There is also plenty of opportunity for customised academic research, should you need to embark on a sociology research program for your university.

During these internships, you’ll be lucky enough to live and work in South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, or Kenya. Wherever you choose to go, you’ll find yourself in a stunning place, surrounded by colourful cultures, impressive landscapes, and a wealth of things to explore in your free time.
