DUNK is primarily focused on the Nima and Jamestown communities, two of the financially poorest areas of Accra. We currently serve approximately 250 boys and girls from ages 10 to 19, providing them opportunities in basketball, after-school tutoring, community outreach, and potential scholarships.
In addition to coaching with our basketball programs, as a volunteer with DUNK, you can:
• Teach basic academic subjects and provide training on health issues or life skills topics;
• Share you interests in the arts, theater, writing, photography, or another area of your suggestion;
• Organize community outreach projects, such as “Clean Up” days; or
• Contribute to DUNK’s operations by focusing on areas such as accounting, marketing, communications, and more
The duration and timing of a volunteer stay is flexible and provides the chance to explore the many historical sites and natural splendors throughout Ghana as well as the beaches, markets, and restaurants of Accra.
