As one of the largest college access programs in Ghana,
YAFGhana works to provide a platform for low-income high school students to explore
scholarship opportunities available to them in Ghana and abroad to pursue higher education.
Our combination of scholarship workshops, mentorship programs, and residential scholars program ensures that students we work with have the requisite knowledge and exposure to navigate the rigorous processes involved in scholarships and college applications.
OUR PRIMARY GOALS
1. Work with schools to boost college awareness among students and parents.
2. Motivate low-income students to reach their educational dreams by providing resources, mentoring, and tutoring.
3. Enroll and matriculate academically ambitious students from under-resourced communities in Ghana to complete college and become changemakers in their communities.

and motivated students.
Their diverse backgrounds, interest, and
experiences make them well placed to effect
much-needed change in Ghana.

access is just one component of success.
