Be Boundless Fundraiser
International Exchange Program
The International Exchange trip to Ghana will provide youth an opportunity to embark on a life changing experience that will encourage them to introspect and grow in an alternative setting. The goal is to broaden the horizons by allowing youth to explore themselves in a setting and culture different than their own. This exchange program hopes to foster a realization within youth that similar barriers can exist within communities even though they may be miles apart in distance. Through interactive learning and hands on activities, we hope to provide youth with diverse opportunities to interact with Ghanaian youth and process local community challenges and opportunities for growth.
How It Works
Funds raised at our gala event or donated through this site will go directly towards the International Exchange to Ghana. Our goal is to send 8 youth on this incredible life-changing experience. Each $5000 that we raise will ensure that one more youth can be a part of this once in a lifetime experience.
Ghana Trip Details
In 2019 eight youth, with support staff, will travel to Ghana and Benin for the Year of Return International Youth Exchange. Ghana Proclaims 2019 as the Year of Return to African Descendants. Paying homage to the past and a hope to a brighter future, 2019 will officially mark the 400 year anniversary since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to English North America in 1619.
The group will depart on June 28th, 2019 and return on July 13th, 2019. Over the span of 15 days the group will travel to Ghana spending: four days in Accra, two days in Nkonya, three days in Kumasi and completing the trip with five days at the Songahi Center in Benin. Their activities will include: Year of Return International Youth Symposium (Accra), visiting the Songhai Centre Youth led Sustainable Social Enterprise Work Exchange, Youth led tours of the Cape Cost Castles, as well as Tour and Youth exchange at the Nkonya Traditional Trades Schools.
