Social Impact

Every year, 10 million graduates will not find a job

The Mandela Legacy Foundation and InternMatch have established a pilot program in South Africa that will place 1,000 tertiary educated South Africans into internships with companies in Africa and around the world (remotely).

The target demographic is tertiary-educated graduates who have aspirations to have a
professional job but have been starved of real-world opportunities. Female graduates will
be specifically encouraged to participate in the program.

How you can help

We need to engage with the business community to ensure that we have a strong pipeline of internship opportunities year-round but in particular, we need to secure the initial requirements for the Pilot Program.

The New Normal

Our research has established that real-life, hands-on industry experience is the most valuable way for graduates to obtain meaningful career-related employment. We intend to expand the number of opportunities available to Africa’s graduates through a  Global Internship Program – with both domestic and international companies – that will be managed and monitored through the InternMatch platform.

Traditionally, internships have been conducted on- premises – inside corporate offices. But with the onset of COVID-19, the world has quickly adapted to a remote working environment that has seen companies taking on ‘remote’ internships for the first time, and to start drawing from the global talent pool.
