Missions :

Generally, a day can include:

  • Teaching English or Mathematics
  • Work on construction projects
  • Animation of workshops, discussion groups, to raise local awareness on topics such as access to care, gender equality, the development of professional skills, etc.

The missions are diverse, and decided according to the needs of the community. However, expect to attend educational workshops, professional development workshops to help them better integrate into the job market later on.

 

Skills acquired:

The training is focused on developing your leadership skills, which allows you to develop other so-called transversal skills, which will serve you in your professional career.

Like all of our training courses for working in humanitarian NGOs , this project in Ghana allows you to benefit from a complete learning experience, while having a positive and lasting impact on local communities.

 

This project is part of the so-called career training:

This vocational training program is part of the so-called “career” projects. In addition to the mission that you carry out on site, it allows you to benefit from real support, and to access the position of project coordinator in 6 months. Here you combine theoretical training with practical learning, with online modules to be completed after the end of the mission. At the end of the program, you obtain an international certification recognized and issued by the University of Richmond, in the United States.

The accompaniment is therefore present upstream, on site but also downstream of the project. During the course of the mission, you will also have a remote project to carry out: you will have to solve a problem with other partner organizations in marine conservation, environment, animal protection... A coach will follow you and support you to help you better in solving these problems, and at the end of the project you will have access to a platform of job offers in NGOs, to which you will be eligible thanks to your professional training in NGOs.

Remote projects included in professional training will be carried out AFTER having carried out the mission in the field.

If your training lasts 4-11 weeks, you will work on a remote project for a period of 4 weeks after completing the field assignment.
If your training lasts 12 weeks or more, you will work on 2 remote projects for a duration of 8 weeks after completing the field mission.
