About

Your Experiment program starts in Accra, the capital of Ghana, a modern city with ancient roots. This fascinating city of contrasts—a unique blend of traditional and contemporary art and culture—is where you will begin your 95 hours of formal internship.  


Deepen your understanding and immerse yourself in local culture by becoming part of a community for four weeks through your group internship, homestay, guest lectures, site visits, and community projects. The homestay experience is the cornerstone of The Experiment experience and you will have the opportunity to stay with a Ghanian family for the duration of the program. 


You’ll gain a new perspective on Africa as cosmopolitan, which counters Eurocentric narratives of deprivation and backwardness. Undergirding this program is the concept of Sankofa, which encourages a strong engagement with the past to ensure informed and sustained progress into the future.
