Volunteer Work Placement

Vaci Volunteer Work Placement

Besides allowing VACI participants to work on our existing project ideas or on projects of their own proposal, VACI also places participants in already existing volunteer positions through our partnerships with local schools, hospitals, libraries, and NGOs. This is a good volunteer option for those participants who do not have enough time and energy to commit to one of the VACI proposed long-term projects.

Participants don't need to have earlier work experience or education in a specific field but if noted, previous knowledge or interest will be used as a means of placement. This will widen the positive experience of Ghana for the volunteer and it will also give the working places a more motivated volunteer. Currently, VACI offers work placement in the following areas:

Counselling / Social Work Project

VACI-Ghana counseling is an integral part of the VACI project with the intention of educating and supporting at-risk youth on issues such as teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, sexually-transmitted infections (especially HIV/AIDS), unsafe abortion, and school dropout and targeting the ever-increasing youth unemployment rate – one of the biggest problems in Ghana today.
