Media and Journalism

Abroad Impact’s media and journalism internships provide exciting opportunities with media companies in Ghana, including TV stations, print publications, radio and online companies. Interns assist in all of these areas, gaining valuable experience in front of and behind the scenes of media production. You’ll hit the streets with colleagues to investigate, cover stories, and interview locals including market women, musicians, and business owners.

Applicants with a history in writing, journalism, and production will thrive in this program, which offers publishing credits and portfolio building opportunities.
