Find out about how you can learn and intern in Ghana, West Africa next summer (June/July). All undergraduate and graduate majors are encouraged to join. The application deadline is approaching in March.

Star Service & Study Abroad (SSSA) was founded by seasoned travelers and Five College alumnae, Nialena Ali (Mount Holyoke College, senior in international relations) and Brittni Howard (Ph.D. student in anthropology at UMass). 

SSSA provides students with the opportunity to work alongside its community and research partners. SSSA works with the Ghanaian humanitarian organization, the Cheerful Hearts Foundation, on its anti-child trafficking, public health and education campaigns, while also taking classes that shed light on the socio-political events that contribute to local problems.

With its holistic approach, students have an enhanced learning experience and the community has more capable and informed volunteers.

SSSA directors and students from the 2017 cohort will be available to answer questions and share their experiences.
