Summer international volunteer opportunity for students

January 8, 2019

Ghana Health and Education Initiative (GHEI) is offering an international volunteer opportunity for students next summer in Ghana.

In 2019, GHEI will offer three volunteer sessions: 
Community Health Evaluation Session 1 (June 7 - June 23, 2019)
Community Health Evaluation Session 2 (June 27 - July 17, 2019)
Girls' Empowerment Camp (July 20 - August 9, 2019)

GHEI Summer Serve and Learn Volunteer Programs (SSL) offer participants a unique opportunity to immerse in a rural Ghanaian community and work alongside Ghana-based staff members in support of a grassroots community development organization’s year-round health and education programs.

All SSL volunteers will have the opportunity to develop and strengthen their skills in cross-cultural communication, project design and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and community outreach, all while working in a low-resource environment with their counterparts to achieve a common goal.
