Ghana Service Learning Program
June 21 - July 2, 2024

Travel to Ghana this summer with the Office of Outreach Global for an unforgettable 10-day service-learning experience. This intensive, hands-on program offers you a unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the lives of local Ghanaians while also enriching your academic and personal life. In addition to the volunteering sessions throughout the program, you will also have the chance to immerse yourself in Ghanaian history and culture through organized museum visits and cultural excursions. This extraordinary adventure promises to be both a service-driven and culturally enriching experience!

The Ghana Service-Learning Program will consist of two programs running simultaneously to one another – the Healthcare Service-Learning and the Education Service-Learning Programs. In the pre-decision portion of the application, please indicate which service-learning experience you would like to participate in.

  • Healthcare Service-Learning Program:

  • Students will take part in Outreach Global’s community health clinic by providing essential routine medical screenings to the local community. This experience allows for extensive hands-on medical practice, allowing you to apply your theoretical knowledge in a real-world healthcare setting. Under the guidance of experienced medical professionals, you will gain practical skills in conducting physical examinations, taking vital signs, and diagnosing common health conditions. During Outreach Global’s previous healthcare program in Ghana, our dedicated students made a significant impact by providing much-needed medical aid to over 1,400 patients. You, too, will have the chance to contribute to this ongoing mission of improving healthcare access and quality in the region.

  • Education Service-Learning Program:

  • Students will have the opportunity to work with local schools and practice teaching, while learning about the Ghanaian education system and structure. This hands-on experience will involve engaging with students of various ages and backgrounds, allowing you to gain insights into the diverse learning needs, challenges, and opportunities within the local community. You will collaborate with experienced educators, participate in classroom activities, and contribute to the educational development of Ghanaian students. This immersive experience will not only enhance your teaching skills but also deepen your understanding of the educational landscape in Ghana, fostering cross-cultural awareness and empathy.
