    Although we provide an award winning level of support and safety, we are very proud that our volunteers are immersed into the local community with our support team to embrace a new culture, all whilst having a direct social impact at our project sites.

    Variety of placements

    As we focus on the development of our little area of Kwahu, we work directly with the local community to ensure we are having as high an impact as possible, one step at a time.

    New for 2021, we have launched our range of environmental protection placements such as reforestation & tree planting, plastic recycling and community farm support.

    Volunteers are lovin’ it

    Read some of what our previous volunteers have had to say about their trips.

    There is no other volunteer group I would highly recommend other than Atlas, as it ticked all the boxes for me, and they were able to accommodate me on such short notice on my arrival

     I honestly cannot recommend Atlas Volunteers enough. I cannot wait to go out and visit the team, and to see all the familiar faces within the communities!

    I definitely recommend this program and I can’t wait to return soon. Atlas Volunteers is the best volunteer program in Ghana.

     If you are looking for a program in which you’ll have a real impact in a community that needs you, and have an amazing time while doing so, Atlas Volunteers and their programs in the breathtaking Kwahu mountains represent exactly what you are looking for.

    The kids I worked with and the work I did there will stay with me for the rest of life, all I can say to Atlas is thank you! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
