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. Unlike typical missions to Africa, Global Leadership Adventures offers high school volunteer abroad in Africa that is exclusive to teens; and our programs in Ghana are focused on community service.
