As part of the Relationship Building session, the interns looked at community development, confidentiality, youth work with minimal resources and outreach skills. Through these sessions interns were able to learn many different things about building relationships with young people.


Interns Family Day

On 27th July we help a family day for the Khayalethu interns at the Pine Street boys shelter.

The families of all interns were invited in order to try and help the families better understand the work we do at Khayalethu, the interns place within this work, and also the purpose of the Internship Pro-gram.

The day was mostly facilitated by the interns, we took turns explaining the role of each team. The explained the work they do and what they learn from being apart of the Internship program. Each team had some practical demonstrations of what they do as part of their work.
