YAF Ghana supports academically ambitious, low-income Ghanaian high school graduates to gain full scholarships to study in top colleges and universities in the United States and in Ghana.
Through our college access program, we seek to groom the next generation of leaders and changemakers. While we guide our scholars through the college application process, we also work to instill in them a sense of their own potential.
We work with senior high school graduates who have already taken the West African Senior High School Certificate examinations (WASSCE). Not just the highest achieving students but all who apply. We select students from every region across the country.
Since its founding in 2017, YAF Ghana has placed 32 students in highly competitive U.S. colleges on full scholarships totaling $5.6 million dollars. We have also reached over 10,000 high school students through our scholarship workshops and mentorship programs. We are continuing to work with local high schools to boost college awareness among students, teachers, and parents.
