During your CCS high school volunteer abroad experience in Ghana, the Ewé people of the Volta Region will become your family—you will connect with the loving community members who make this place unforgettable.

• Ghana, meaning "Warrior King," is a place known for its warm national character, where visitors are always welcomed as friends. Above all, the Ghanaians are peaceful, caring, and hospitable. Over 100 different ethnic groups call Ghana home.

• The Ghanaians maintain a relatively stable government, as well as one of the strongest economies in West Africa thanks to their abundance of natural resources.

• Our exclusive Teen Home-Base is located in the extreme east of Ghana in a lush, tropical, and fairly mountainous area: Ho, Ghana is the largest town in the Volta Region (though that’s not saying much considering there are only about 30,000 people in town!).

Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.

Whether you're teaching the English alphabet, leading students in a song, or giving a math lesson, your service will support local youth and educators. Apply your passion to make an impact that will resonate for generations to come!

Nurturing future generations begins with a single lesson, a simple smile, or just a bit of extra attention. When you volunteer with child care centers, daycare centers, community centers, and other organizations, you are working towards strengthening a community's greatest asset: their children.

By trading stories with an elderly friend, serving meals, or lightening the burden of an administrator, your service will connect you to your new community in a very special way. By offering an elderly person attention and love, you’ll build bridges between cultures and across generations.

In many communities, individuals with disabilities face harsh social stigmas and are left with few resources. Work alongside our partner organizations to bring joy to the lives of people with disabilities as they strive to live each day to its fullest.
