Cape Town Summer Internship Program at The University of Kentucky

Greetings, Class Community. 

Dr. Stephen R Davis will be holding an info session for the Cape Town Summer Internship Program this Thursday at 5PM in Bradley 207.  

Students who are looking for a way to live, study, and volunteer in Africa, AND earn UK credit at the same time, then this is the program for them.  If it isn't too much trouble could you please pass on this invitation to any interested parties.

The program will place students with one of three non-profit organizations that work on the following issues; environmental education, STEM curriculum development and primary teacher training, and building sustainable non-profit organizations through fundraising and social media.  Students will also participate in a seminar on the social, economic and political challenges facing post-apartheid South Africa.  

In short, this eight-week program allows students to make a difference in the lives of South Africans living in the townships, gives them the opportunity to gain valuable real world experience and transferable skills, and earns them seven credit hours toward graduation.

If students cannot attend the info session but would like to know more about the program please have them check out our official website ( or contact me at

Nkosi kakhulu/Baie dankie/Thanks a lot,
