Internship in Ghana

Global Crossroad organizes the internship in Ghana program especially for international students in various areas: orphanage work, sustainable agriculture and conservation, teaching English, and health care. Global Crossroad offers internships in Ghana in any area in collaboration with our local partners. Areas of Ghana internship include:


- Health
- Teaching 
- Social work (orphanage)


Under the Ghana internship program, the intern engages in daily project activities. In most cases, interns develop a report paper in a particular area of interest by working closely with the Global Crossroad project staff. Generally, the director of this project serves as a supervisor for the intern. As an intern, you stay with host families who live near the project in which you are involved. Most of the time, the director of the project will work to help you successfully complete your field report. Please contact Global Crossroad if you need any help locating information and materials for your internship program.

In order to get the most out of your internship position in Ghana, Global Crossroad recommends at least one week of language and culture programs because many times, language difficulties hinder the effectiveness of interning. These programs will provide you with a necessary, comprehensive start in exploring the every day issues of Ghana. Furthermore, it is possible to organize extra tutorials with experts in particular areas for additional fees. Global Crossroad suggests that you correspond with us if you have special needs for your internship.
