Opportunity Description

Host organization: Lead for Ghana

Location: Accra, Ghana

Lead For Ghana is dedicated to cultivating a new generation of ethical and effective leaders who can drive meaningful social change in Ghana. The organization addresses educational inequity and leadership gaps within the country by identifying, training, and placing talented recent university graduates and young professionals in underserved schools nationwide.

As an intern, you'll be a part of this programming and the Leadership Development Fellowship, a comprehensive program designed to select and train exceptional individuals from diverse academic backgrounds. Through this fellowship, Lead for Ghana equips participants, referred to as fellows, with the necessary skills, knowledge, and mindset to become transformative leaders within the education sector. 


All Global Interns receive an award totaling at least $3,000 for airfare, transportation, and living expenses. A portion of the stipend may be paid directly to the in-country host to support housing, food, and local transportation.
