Accura July 2018
Partnering with Columbus City Council and Pan African Connections, a group of six youth ambassadors traveled to Accra, Ghana in the summer of 2018.

While in Accra, the students met with high school students in Accra and visited the many cultural and historic sites in the region, including the Cape Coast Slave Castle. They also met with elected officials including the Mayor of Accra.

Upon their return, two students were selected to represent the City of Columbus at the 2018 Sister Cities International Youth Leadership Summit in Aurora, Colorado.
