Trip of a Lifetime: DCHS Students Study Abroad in Ghana

by | Mar 29, 2022 | 0 comments

This month, DREAM Charter High School students embarked on the trip of a lifetime to Ghana as part of a study abroad opportunity with I Am C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D., an organization that works to address the barriers to travel for high schools students and creates experiences for young people to help them envision life beyond their immediate communities.

Over the course of a week, students participated in a wide range of enrichment activities, from learning traditional Batik Fabric-making, visiting the historic sites of Accra, and honoring the memory of enslaved African people who were taken from the shores of Ghana centuries ago.

Below, several DCHS students share their reflections and photos from Ghana, and recount certain experiences that made an imprint on their hearts and minds. You can find more photos and videos from DCHS’ study abroad trip by visiting our gallery on DREAM’s Facebook Page.
