About Program

Assist with the strategic development of a nonprofit organization during a business development internship in Africa. You’ll be part of a purpose-driven organization focused on social development or environmental impact. As an intern, you’ll use your skills to help with the overall sustainability of the initiative. This can involve working on digital marketing strategies, assisting with fundraising, creating budgets and proposals, or developing sustainability plans. Either way; you’ll be working on a strategic level and assisting with long-term growth of the organization. These business and entrepreneurship internships in Africa provide an exciting opportunity to gain practical work experience and support an important cause at the same time.

We offer business development internships in South Africa, as well as remotely. Whether you’ll work on site or online, you’ll be part of a small but dedicated team that you can add substantial value to as an intern.

Impact

Sustainability

Having started off as the offshoot of an urban greening project, Roots Interns has always been aware of our environmental impact. That's why we work with projects and accommodations that are also actively aware of their impact and striving to make a positive difference. By consciously choosing partners that have sustainable practices in place, we can work towards balancing out any impacts on the environment with equally positive actions.

Ethical Impact

Roots Interns was built around a need for qualified interns in the sustainable development sector. Whether supporting environmental or wildlife conservation or social development, our internships leave a tangible positive footprint on people’s lives and their environment. Working at a grassroots level ensures that the needs of host communities are always at the forefront, no matter the specific cause. Many of our partners support the UN Sustainable Development Goals, further aligning our internships with creating sustainable change. We take great pride in the impact our interns create with the organization they work with and the connections they're able to make in new locations and cultures.
