The Summer Serve and Learn volunteer program offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience in international development work in Africa. Our volunteers take part in 16-day sessions working alongside local staff to reach common goals. Our programs are each designed to complement our year-round programming and the skills and expertise of our volunteers. By volunteering, you will have the opportunity to learn from the local community and gain profound insight into life in rural Ghana. You will benefit from Twi language lessons, discussions on pertinent topics and cultural exchanges, such as meeting the village chief, a drumming and dancing workshop, and traveling to sites at the historic Ghanaian cities of Kumasi and Cape Coast.
