Chris Fick & Associates

Our 4 to 8 week internship program has been running for 9 months and is aimed at improving the lives of young unemployed individuals of all backgrounds from the townships around Cape Town. We assist these young individuals to gain administrative experience and skills development in a formal work environment.

Our interns are selected from the suburbs and townships around Cape Town by Mrs Suzette Ndovie, an independent individual who herself lives in the township and is involved with projects in her community to help adults to become self-sufficient.

The internship program offers opportunities that empower our interns to gain on-the-job work experience and build their profiles with the hope of making them more marketable in their respective fields. The interns are involved with real work assignments that we regard as valuable within the work structure.

A big part of the program involves job shadowing, office skills training, the introduction and exposure to various Government Offices such as the Deeds Office, Master’s Office, the High Court, Magistrate’s Court, the Civic Centre, SARS, Post Office and Docex, and performing tasks at these various offices and institutions. The interns are exposed to and involved in messenger functions, post preparation, archiving, serving and filing, office filing, practising computer skills and conducting basic research, telephone etiquette and other general office functions. Over and above these practical skills we encourage them to read and engage in self-education.

Gouwa, Lindile and Luciane have obtained employment after completing the program and Wada is now a fruit and veg vendor.  Mzu has attained a heavy duty driver’s license and Welcome is completing his matric.

Currently Hajira, Miki and Laetitia are in the training program.
