Program Overview

Program Description:

Care for children in need through school or after-school programs.

Live in a land of more than 80 languages and 70 tribal groups! In Ghana you can converse with nearly everyone around you, as English is the official language. Living in a dorm at the University of Ghana, you’ll have an intercultural experience like no other. Hang out with your CIEE peers, go out to watch Ghanaian movies, and meet other international students on campus.

Each day you’ll work with an NGO dedicated to helping disadvantaged children. CIEE partners with the Future Leaders Underprivileged Children’s Center (UCC), which prepares out-of-school children to join the formal educational system. CIEE also partners with the Christah School of Excellence, where students help teach lessons.

You’ll bridge cultures and build relationships with at-risk children and youth, ages 4 to 15. Through teaching one-on-one or group lessons, coaching sports or supervising activities, you’ll enrich children’s lives as well as your own.

Please see our website for tuition information.
