Benin and Ghana, West Africa Service Learning Trip
African History, Culture, and Spirituality
Now in its eighth year, this experience allows participants the opportunity to travel with Dr. Joyce Hope Scott to two West African nations to acquire a greater understanding of African history and culture and the key role of Africans in the development of world civilizations.
Students study and experience the richness and diversity of Benin and Ghana while expanding their intercultural, communication, critical thinking, and research skills. Service learning opportunities include English literacy teaching in schools and orphanages. Cultural experiences include visits to Kwame Nkrumah Museum, Kakum Rainforest, and Cape Coast in Ghana, and the Sacred Forest of Ouidah, the Gate of No Return, and Palace of the Leopard Kings in Benin.
