Accra, Ghana
My time abroad
Danny Mohler
I had the opportunity to study abroad at the University of Ghana in Accra. Right from the start I wanted to get involved. Three young men, Selorm, Romeo, and Daniel came and spoke to my study abroad group. I was sold right away. They spoke about the opportunity to teach and play with the children and more importantly make an inlact on the youth of Christian village. I volunteered twice a week once playing soccer with the boys of the MYN program and another teaching an after school lesson. I can honestly say this was the highlight of my entire time spent in Ghana. The enthusiasm and determination of the children is unmatched. Also the men running this program were there whenever I had questions or needed help. They have enormous hearts that are aimed at reaching an enormous goal. This time with MYN not only made my heart happy but provided me with work experience (teaching and fundraising) I've used in interviews and on resumes. If you are interested in changing lives and gaining valuable experience look no further than MYN. Feel free to reach out to me as well if you have any questions as well!

Amazing experience in Cambodia!
Georgia Williams
At BCDO you will find some amazing people doing truly incredible work in the community. Sopheap and Nalise are inspirational, and the work you do in Tmor Sor really has an impact on the community. From social projects to environmental initiatives, the school contributes so much. Couldn't recommend enough!!

Great Volunteer Experience!
Kameena Anderson
I volunteered with Espaanglisch for a month while traveling in Peru. I can't say enough about my experience there. The best part was getting to know everyone in conversation class. I had an opportunity to lead conversation classes with adults in the evening. The conversation classes pair fluent English speakers with Peruvians who want to practice their English skills. I gained new friends and made meaningful connections by volunteering at Espaanglisch and leading the class. I can't wait to return!
