Getting Involved with Patriots Ghana’s Projects
One of Patriots Ghana’s primary goals is to promote volunteering through cultural exchange where Ghanaians and Foreign nationals (international volunteers/interns) can take part in Patriots Nationwide volunteer and internship projects to cause development in Ghanaian communities as well as create an opportunity for learning, sharing and developing capacities of volunteers & Interns.
The volunteer projects are open to anyone who is interested in a particular field and willing to contribute towards the aims of Patriots Ghana.
The internship programme is designed for those who are currently attending or have recently graduated university in Ghana or abroad. It is a great opportunity for current students to gain experience in a professional, non-profit environment, and for recent graduates to hone their skills for their career, as well as in the development/non-profit sector.
Volunteer and internships projects are a highly rewarding experience for individuals looking for a network of Ghanaian contacts, as you will be joining a large membership of Patriots Ghana’s local leaders across the country.
Due to the wide network of Patriots, volunteers and interns also have the opportunity to work on projects in different parts of the country to be able to experience the different aspects of a particular project and the different cultures of the country.
We predominantly research and manage projects as a hands-on team, with international interns and volunteers also adding insightful value to the impact that we make in our communities. Those working with Patriots Ghana gain a wide range of experiences and skills through their exposure to Patriots work in deprived communities and the cultural exchange between Ghanaian and international volunteers.
Should you prefer to join an already established project, we have numerous ongoing projects that are consistently recruiting new members from PG in different regions of Ghana. Due to the ever-growing nature of PG, please feel free to suggest any particular project that you feel your local community may require.
