It is never too early to begin thinking about one's future during the formative years of life. In order to get Junior High School and Senior High School students thinking about their career paths, the teachers would like to host a three day camp that combines fun with educational learning. The camp will have persons of various occupations come to speak to 20 students (10 boys and 10 girls) about choosing their career path. Before arriving at the camp, the students selected to attend, will write a report on their career goals so that they will have a personal road map throughout the week. The students will also be required to give a presentation at the end of the camp on a selected.

The impact of this camp is two-fold. First, the students will know how to select courses for their secondary education. Second, the students who are in SHS will be guided on their next steps based on their career goals. The community members will provide the meals as well as facilitate various sessions.

This project has been designed to expand access to education for girls in Ghana as part of the Let Girls Learn Program. Learn more at letgirlslearn.peacecorps.gov.

Your contribution increases the impact of Ms. Wright, her fellow Peace Corps Volunteers, and their communities; and makes a brighter future possible for young women in Ghana.
