YOUNG ACHIEVERS FOUNDATION GHANA

YAFGhana works to provide a platform for low-income high school students to explore scholarship opportunities available to them in Ghana and abroad to pursue higher education.

AT YAF GHANA
WE BELIEVE EDUCATION + MENTORSHIP + LEADERSHIP = TRANSFORMATION

Our combination of scholarship workshops, mentorship programs, and residential scholar programs ensures that students we work with have the requisite knowledge and exposure to navigate the rigorous processes involved in scholarships and college applications.

What We Do

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.

Overview

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.

Who We Serve

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.

Our Impact

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.
