|Custom placements are available and a variety of other types of Internship programs not listed here. We have coordinated meaningful volunteer/internship work for business professionals, fire-fighters, writers, news reporters, journalists, engineers, artists, photographers, researchers and more who wanted to share their professional expertise or experience with others.
Internship or Volunteering is not like a school, Where the course outline and subjects are already designed about content and what subjects to learn. In volunteering or internship you choose what really interests you and who (or what) is most deserving of your time. We offer customized internship and volunteer programs for students, recent graduates, and individuals from all academic backgrounds and all levels of experience.
Ghana has so much to offer volunteers with its rich culture, festivals, food, art & craft centers, castles & forts, long sandy beaches, national parks, falls and other interesting places to visit. Visitors who volunteer in Ghana experience these even more fully by getting an insider's understanding of the country. It is a perfect place for first-time travelers to West Africa. You will never regret being part of this unique experience and exposure.
We would pick you up at the airport, provide a home stay accommodation, orientation about Ghana and be given 24/7 guidance and support. If you like children, there are tons of volunteering opportunities from being a Big Brother or Big Sister to helping out in an after-school sports program, orphanages and children centers all across. The opportunities are endless! So just give us your wish list by sending us an email or apply on line today.
