EPI provides a wide variety of volunteer and internship opportunities.

Share your skills

Whether you are skilled in writing, editing, finances, marketing, graphic design, or yoga, we can use you and your skills to help further the efforts of Empower Playgrounds. We need help writing blog posts, editing marketing materials, and running our social media sites. We also love support on working with analyzing our budgets and finances. If you have a skill like yoga, you can volunteer to teach a yoga class and have your attendees make donations to EPI. Whatever your skills are you can volunteer those talents to help the children in West Africa. Contact us at info@empowerplaygrounds.org and let us know your skills and we will tell you how you can contribute!

Intern with us

We provide a rich experience for each intern we hire. We are dedicated to making sure your experience with us is as valuable to you as it is to Empower Playgrounds. This means you get hands-on experience working in the nonprofit sector international development. We particularly like having interns to work with our US based team. The internships we have available are: 

  • Social Media/Marketing 
  • Fundraising/Grant-Writing
  • Nonprofit Management/Project Evaluation

Contact us: at info@empowerplaygrounds.org for more information. Please indicate which internship opportunities you are interested in. All internships are unpaid, but we can direct you to outside resources that may help provide you with funds.

Volunteer in Ghana

Take a trip and join us in Ghana to install merry-go-rounds, libraries, teach science kits, and meet the beautiful children.  Bring your family, friends, or come alone. We are happy to have you come and see first hand where your donor dollars are going. Trips to Ghana typically cost $5000 per person including: round-trip flight, vaccinations, visa application, travel in country, simple accommodation in-country, food, and a small contribution to the projects you will be working on. Cost varies depending on when tickets are purchased and what type of accommodation you arrange with us.  Contact us at info@empowerplaygrounds.org
