TOTI interns hosted a business breakfast recently to raise awareness about the Toti-Interns programme.
Toti-Interns equip future leaders in the community by providing a mentorship programme for them. 
The internship is founded on three core pillars based on developing the youth on a personal level, a professional level and in their community.

Developing candidates are taught excellence, integrity and respect. 
On a professional level, interns are prepared for their careers.
To develop in the community, the interns work with non-profit organisations as volunteers, visit Toti high schools, build relationships and guide pupils to become healthy, successful decision makers.

The vision of an internship came about in 2015 when Dr Anthony Jacobs and Pastor Lood Badenhorst of AFM Church had an idea of starting a gap-year programme for the youth. 
After much deliberation and research, they concluded they needed to start an internship rather than a gap year.

The interns work towards a higher certificate in youth work.
At the end of the year they are certified with SAQA accredited, NQF level 5 diploma in youth work and can apply at schools or churches as youth workers.

In the past the programme had to refuse some youth due to the financial cost.
They then raised money to make it possible to offer their programme to young people who can’t afford it. 
They also met children during their outreach who were unable to complete their school education and who are seeking funding to incorporate it into their 2018 programme.

They need the support of the community and their current needs are:

• sponsorship for underprivileged pupils who want to join;

• Toyota Quantum 14-seater, or similar, to transport pupils to community projects and other venues;

• a mobile sound system; and

• funds to do more in the community.
