The training in Ghana allows you to live a complete professional experience while participating in a particularly rich immersive mission, to eventually work in an NGO in Africa for example. The learning is indeed practical and theoretical, with online modules before the start of the project. You benefit from in-depth support, while helping the local community in learning English and through various educational workshops. Share your experiences with the locals, and discover their culture, their traditions and their way of life!
Participants train with the community from Monday to Friday, through educational workshops and courses, which they must plan and prepare in advance, to work in an NGO in Africa. Weekends are free, volunteers can take the opportunity to discover the region or simply relax at the base!
Generally, a day can include:
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.
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 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.

The assignment depends on the skills and profile of the participants. A telephone interview and a registration file (CV and motivation letter) will determine the placement of the volunteers on educational projects ranging from childcare to the organisation of extracurricular activities and tutoring / assistance in schools for those with the most training.
All their initiatives and volunteer projects are led by experts in collaboration with the local population and national governments. All projects follow medium and long term objectives defined with local partners and respecting the United Nations sustainable development goals.
