Musicians for Ghana Youth Project

$400 p/month
We are looking for four talented and enthusiastic music professionals to join our team in Accra, Ghana, and to provide life-changing musical opportunities to a group of young people living in extraordinary circumstances. If you'd like to use your music skills to make a difference, to empower and inspire young people in need, and to experience a unique culture and tradition, we would like to hear from you.

The work involves providing instrument lessons and music classes as well as holding rehearsals, which will lead up to public performances. The work will be conducted in English. The students live in at Kinder Paradise, a children’s home outside Accra, which provides shelter and support for vulnerable children. Most of these children come from extremely harsh backgrounds. The music activities form part of the support mechanism they receive, with the aim of sharing hope, encouragement and empowerment. It is envisioned that the selected music professionals will become, aside from music teachers, life coaches and role models for the Ghanaian students

Part of the teaching will involve teacher training others as teachers. If the circumstances allow us, it is our intent to have the music teachers in Ghana spend a portion of their time preparing the next generation of music teachers.
