Internships with ALERT

The ALERT Internship Program has been created to provide graduates and skilled individuals with unrivalled opportunities to experience the complexities and challenges involved in working for a non-governmental organization in Africa.

The Program has been designed to incorporate individuals from all walks of life.  Whether you are a graduate looking to gain behind-the-scenes experience in conservation field work; a teacher seeking an opportunity to use your skills to help under-privileged children or a vet nurse who wants a chance to work with some of Africa’s iconic wildlife, then ALERT can give you the chance to fulfil your dreams of working in Africa.

If you have a skill or have specific experience that is not covered by our published options, but which you feel can assist ALERT to meet our objectives then we will consider your application.  

NOTE: If you are looking to use data collected  during your stay at the program for a university course or thesis, please refer to our facilitated research program instead.

If the only thing stopping you from realising your dream of interning in Africa is the financial cost involved, why not join 1000s of other travellers around the world who fundraise to pay for their trip.  Volunteer Forever is an online fundraising resource that allows you to appeal for donations towards your costs while keeping family, friends and other potential donors up-to-date with your progress.  We also encourage you to download our fundraising guide here with lots of helpful ideas on how you can make your appeal effective.
