Founded in 1995, Cross-Cultural Solutions is often referred to as a Peace Corps Alternative. Called a "mini Peace Corps" by The New York Times, for almost two decades we've been offering a variety of volunteer abroad programs like the Peace Corps. If you're searching for organizations like the Peace Corps, your search ends here. Cross-Cultural Solutions offers a variety of flexible, culturally immersive, life-changing volunteer opportunities that span anywhere from 1-12 weeks in length; a perfect introduction to the life of an international volunteer.
How Cross-Cultural Solutions works:
Unlike the Peace Corps, which is funded by the government in exchange for your two-year commitment, CCS is funded by volunteers. As a volunteer, you have the flexibility to choose where and when you volunteer, and in which area of impact you would like to work. Included in the program fee are CCS' unique cultural and learning activities, accommodation at the CCS Home-Base, healthy authentic meals, your custom volunteer assignment, and access to our network of over 35,000 alumni when you return.
Choosing the experience that's right for you:
If you're interested in programs like the Peace Corps, but hesitant to commit two or more years, a CCS program is an excellent way to experience international volunteering in a short period of time. In fact many of our alums later go on to join the Peace Corps. Call us and talk to one today!
