GHANA: Teaching Volunteer Project

Ghana Teaching Volunteer Project

The Ghana teaching volunteer project takes place in Accra. Through the Ghana teaching volunteer project, support is provided to orphaned children, street children and vulnerable children. Volunteering with Go Volunteer Africa in Ghana allows you to work directly with students while gaining meaningful exposure to the state of education in the country.

By immersing yourself in the classrooms, working alongside other volunteers and local team, and engaging with children, you will have the opportunity to learn more about yourself, get exposed to a range of inequities across communities, and contribute to the impact of education in Ghana.

PROJECT LOCATION

Accra: is the capital of Ghana, on the Atlantic coast of West Africa. Accra is the most populated city in Ghana. The central business district of Accra contains the city’s main banks and department stores, as well as an area known as the Ministries, where Ghana’s government administration is concentrated.

Tourism is becoming a thriving source of business for those in arts and crafts, historical sites and local travel and tour agents. Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park honors Ghana’s first president, who helped lead the country to independence. The park contains Nkrumah’s mausoleum and a museum charting his life. Makola Market is the city’s vast, colorful bazaar. Popular seafront spots Labadi Beach and Kokrobite Beach offer golden sand and high-energy nightlife.

ARRIVAL & AIRPORT PICKUP

After you have booked and confirmed your placement, please book your flights to arrive at Kotoka International Airport in Accra. A member of staff from our local partner organization in Ghana will meet you on arrival at Airport and take you to the volunteer guest house or host family which will be your base for volunteering. This airport services numerous international carriers. Ghana has good connections to destinations throughout Europe, the Asia- Pacific region, USA and Africa.

ORIENTATION

Orientation and Placement will be done the next day. Generally, your volunteer orientation is an overview of the project’s mission, expectations and introduction to the local community and project site. Following your arrival in Ghana you will be given a presentation by the co-coordinating project team to prepare you for the work you will be doing.

PROJECT DETAILS

Participants joining our Ghana teaching volunteer project will be teaching children from disadvantaged backgrounds. By joining the program you can help the teaching staff at our local schools. You can support in teaching them Basic English & Math and can also interact in more extracurricular activities like sport, drama or music lessons for example.

Togo Teaching Volunteer Project

As a volunteer in Ghana, you can help in taking normal classes, assisting the teaching staff, conducting extracurricular activities like clay modeling, painting, drawing, singing, art & drama, dancing, group work, games or other similar activities. Your help and assistance will be greatly appreciated in the school and will be a refreshing change to existing curriculum.

Almost all schools we support across Africa, have need for infrastructure development and/or renovations. Volunteers can do a combination of both teaching and renovation/building work at the project they choose to work at. If you’re a native English speaker or with some teaching experience, you can be a valuable resource in these classrooms.

Ghana Teaching Volunteer Project
