Magister South Africa offers a Social Work internship placement or volunteering opportunity at a childrens village in Cape Town. Interns and volunteers will be assigned to a house working alongside a house mother. Participants will assist the children in their daily lives and help coordinate their welfare and activities. These can include helping children with their morning schedule, doing after-school activities, and serving as mentor and guide.

Participants who are still studying can also assist with tasks according to their study requirements.
