Known as one of the friendliest West African countries, Ghana is an ideal place to engage in a new culture. By living with a host family and attending classes with local Ghanaian students, you’ll be able to rewrite your high school experience and step outside of your comfort zone. Before long you could be browsing through markets of fresh fruits and vegetables or munching on fried plantains seasoned with chilli pepper and ginger. This is your chance to get off the beaten path and join a culture that values taking the time to enjoy life. Spend a year in Ghana challenging yourself and defying expectations as you become part of a new community.
