Program Description


Program Overview

Share your skills and your heart in a Ghanaian Orphanage for two weeks before exploring a country rich in African historical and cultural sites. Visit the slave castles, markets, pristine beaches, historic cities, diverse villages and the verdant rainforest with the canopy walk at Kakum National Park. Participate in local festivals and enjoy unique African cuisine. Experience Ghanaian culture first hand in an authentic community experience: living with a host family during a “homestay” while engaging in service to others and contributing to the educational development of local children.

Courses offered
EEX 4742 Narrative Perspectives on Exceptionality: Cultural and Ethical Issues (3 credits)
AFS 3251 Environment and Cultural Study of Africa (3 credits)


After landing in the Capital City of Accra students will spend two weeks at an orphanage in the Central Region of Ghana. Weekend excursions will take them to local areas of interest. The final two weeks of the program will be spent traveling throughout southern Ghana visiting places like Cape Coast, Kumasi, Obuasi and Kakum National Park.
