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!).
