Our Human Rights internship program offers interns the opportunity to get involved at a grass roots level, raising awareness of human rights in a variety of marginalized communities. YearOut Africa’s internships are ideal if you are a law student or a graduate seeking practical experience in human rights work.

However, the work is also suitable if you are a student building a resume for law school or if you have a general interest in law and human rights. The experiences that you will have while interning in Ghana will give your resume an edge over the competition.

Your exact role will be determined by your level of experience and interest in specific areas. One of our mission is to ultimately promote and protect the rights of the people of Ghana. We do this through three main types of work: raising awareness of human rights, monitoring vulnerable areas, and resolving human rights abuses. On the Human Rights program, you can expect to be busy at a full-time placement.

This placement is best for interns with a strong interest in affecting change for the better while keeping in mind the long-term aim of the projects. Placements are demanding and must be taken seriously. You can expect to operate in urban and rural locations, meet people at all levels of society, and engage with international organizations.

It is important to demonstrate cultural understanding and flexibility. Our mandate is to empower individuals and communities as well as nurture a supportive framework for human rights rather than impose western ideals on Ghanaian society.
