Located at the tip of the African continent, Cape Town has a vibrant start-up culture with a growing emphasis on social entrepreneurship which affords students opportunities to be matched with NGO’s and businesses based upon their professional interests. In addition, students will participate in a number of activities designed to foster a deeper understanding of South Africa’s culture, history, ecology and business environment. The marquee event will be an excursion along the south-eastern coast of South Africa with accommodations/safari at a private game reserve. This program is ideal for rising juniors and seniors with an interest in healthcare, business, education, arts, or economic policy.
