OPERATION CHARITY

Internship opportunities for effective change makers.


 

Are you interested in gaining work experience while being mentored by seasoned professionals?  Are you interested in all of your hard work empowering marginalized girls in Northern Ghana?

Then consider applying to our Operation Charity internship program, for youth ready to apply their change making skills to a working charity.    

Our internships are paid positions, but as part of this program interns will agree to donate some of their wage to support girls in Northern Ghana to attend school.  Every hour you put into your internship will provide you with the opportunity to grow your skill set, gain valuable experience, contribute to the success of a charity, and help support a girl your own age to achieve her potential.
