Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Hope 4 the special people foundation.
One of our greatest assets is our volunteers and interns. H4TSP provides internships and volunteer programs for students, professionals, groups and organizations from all over the world to contribute their skills and expertise towards our vision. Individuals with a wide variety of skill sets and interests are welcome to H4TSP. We match our volunteers’ and interns’ to a desired field of work with a local institution in need, such as schools, health clinics etc. Volunteers and interns are an integral part of H4TSP and can put their skills to use helping with a wide variety of projects in the H4TSP office.
Volunteers play a valuable role in supporting our work, and we’re really grateful to every single individual who has donated his/her time and resources to H4TSP. Please read on for further information regarding volunteering and intending opportunities in Ghana.
We are able to accommodate high-caliber candidates whose skills, experience and interests are relevant to the needs of the organization at the time. To maximize productivity to H4TSP, we normally encourage placements of three to six months and prioritize candidates with previous experience of developing countries and/or working in relevantly challenging environments.
What is the difference between volunteers and interns?
While the duties of volunteers and interns overlap, there is a difference between the two positions. In general, volunteers come to H4TSP to give their time and skills that they have acquired from their education, profession, or other experiences. Conversely, interns come to H4TSP to learn more about a field in which they are currently studying, or to gain more experience in a real-world setting. Interns are also able to use their experience to earn course credit if approved through their educational institution. However, all of our volunteers and interns will put their skills to work as well as learn a lot from their experience.
In exchange for their hard work, volunteers and interns have much to gain from their time here in Ghana. Working with us will help you expand your knowledge and understanding of crucial development issues, teach you about the inner workings of non-profits and NGOs, give you the opportunity to learn about a new culture, and of course, to have a lot of fun! Volunteering or interning with us is also a great way to boost your CV or gain course credit for your degree. above all, We certify you for working with us. Apply now for your interview
