Our High School Plus program will provide you with an opportunity to educate, grow and immerse yourself in the South African culture – both within a High School and industry specific environment.
The program is suitable for 17 and 18-year-olds. You will spend the first part of the program as a full-time high school student at a local South African High School. In the second half of the program, you will be assigned to an industry specific environment, where you will explore and experience the culture of a professional environment. During your stay, you will be welcomed into a caring South African host family in the Greater Cape Town area.
Within the organisation, you will be paired up with your own mentor, who will share his/her expertise, knowledge and experience.
