Intern in Ghana

Intern in Ghana – or volunteer – to experience the local culture of Ghana in a way most tourists can’t. And meanwhile, support locals in their sustainable development efforts!

So Why Intern or Volunteer in Ghana?

Intern or volunteer in Ghana to get to know locals while you live like a local! Whether you choose to work in a lab or a classroom (or anything in between), you’ll have time to explore Ghanaian culture, from West African cuisine to local crafts such as Batik, and get to know people with a range of experiences and histories. Ghana provides a mix of culture and sightseeing, so in your free time as an intern in Ghana you can explore museums, parks, bustling markets and even slow-paced, picturesque beaches. (Check out our blog about getting around Accra!) And maybe you’ll even decide to visit Kakum National Park to explore a more natural side of Ghana, or visit a castle-turned-museum and learn about the sobering role this region played in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
