YPWC’S VOLUNTEER ABROAD OPPORTUNITIES
Volunteering is widely regarded as the ideal way to encourage active community integration. It gives a person the chance to build their confidence and self respect which helps them to secure the university place of their choice or to enter the employment field with a good CV.
“I’d love to see more young people taking action to help the poor and disadvantaged”– Bill Gates, Newsweek Web
All over the world many people including young people are currently volunteering and partnering with Governments, organizations and communities to take a lead in the change that they wish to see in their communities and the world at large. Volunteering for solidarity is key to the realization of the Millennium Development Goals .Volunteerism provides an opportunity for people to meet, share ideas and have fun without dwelling on divisive issues such as race and colour. This has created cross-boundary opportunities and allowed for the sharing of ideas and best practises for development. YPWC would like to invite you to be part of our international volunteer team that work with us.
Organising an overseas volunteer programme is a difficult and time-consuming task – especially when you are trying to do it during a busy year of College. YPWC offers an unrivalled package to take away all the hassle of this process, leaving prospective volunteers/interns free to concentrate on what they should be doing – learning and preparing towards enjoying their placement. YPWC makes sure that our volunteers are provided with comprehensive information in living in Ghana. We try to make your volunteer experience in Ghana a period of excitement whilst you try to make an impact on the life of people and communities.
The volunteer/internship programme will in addition to other relevant details build intern’s or volunteers capacity in the following areas: Leadership skills, proposal and report writing, training and facilitation skills. Interns/Volunteers will also be exposed to research on Migration and Development, Millenniun Development Goals and HIV/AIDs.
