Often called the heart and soul of West Africa, Ghana is known for its welcoming, passionate and peaceful people. It is a particularly important place, because it is where many African-Americans can trace their roots. Ghana's government is democratically elected, and it is one of the few modern African nations identified as having a free press. Global Leadership Adventures offers teen summer programs for volunteering in Ghana; programs are focused on community service for high school students.
