About

Do more than go abroad this summer, step out into the world.

Join our programs in Ghana for 3- or 8-week Institutes focused on Health or Social Innovation. Gather at the local community center with a handful of community members to brainstorm, discuss, and address local challenges together. Pick an opportunity and innovate with your local team as you tackle challenges and turn them into opportunities for innovation. In the end, you will create a sustainable business that benefits your team and the community as a whole.

Going abroad should impact you and the people you meet. An Institute with ThinkImpact will help you gain knowledge about social entrepreneurship, social innovation, and Ghanaian culture. It will change your entire perspective about the world and positively influence the community members that you worked with. The community will benefit by continuing to build the innovative and sustainable social enterprises that solve a pressing community need.

Go abroad. Go beyond.
