Selected students for the program will be required to receive corrective classes and workshops, should there be a need, to ensure smooth academic transition to junior high school, JHS, Senior high school, SHS, and college/university in the junior and senior years of senior secondary school.
Beginning the academic year of admission to GEIG, Students will be required to hold membership and if possible, a leadership role in a campus club/organization or community. GEIG will facilitate leadership workshops and speaker series with young professionals and students will be matched with a mentor in JH1. Each student is matched with a university age female student or young professional who volunteers to mentor a student throughout until her graduation from GEIG at the end of senior high school. Mentors share their knowledge of academic and professional paths, offer exposure to new experiences, and are assets in each student’s academic, professional, and personal development.
Following each academic year, students will be expected to obtain internship or volunteer experience to aid in their professional development.
PURPOSE: To cultivate a culture of volunteerism in our students and reinforce reciprocity within the community. Public service is critical to students’ personal and professional growth. All students must commit to fulfill a total of 100 hours of community service either in their home or school communities.
Students following college matriculation will be required to work in Ghana so that they can contribute to the development of their home country. Graduates will be expected to serve as mentors for future participants in the programs.
