VOLUNTEER ABROAD. CHANGE THEIR WORLD. CHANGE YOURS.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.

A volunteer trip abroad with Cross-Cultural Solutions will change you. Change the way you see other cultures. Maybe even change how you live your life. All while you change the lives of others for the better. Ultimately we’re changing the way volunteering is done, making it a safe, exciting adventure of a lifetime for people of all ages and walks of life.

WHY VOLUNTEER ABROAD WITH CCS

More than ever, people around the world want change. Change in the inequities that polarize. Change in the corrupt systems that prevent self-determination. Change in the unjust repression of entire populations.

But the change we all wish to see won't be realized through big, sweeping acts—not by governments, or armies, or the UN. Instead, lasting change will be achieved through small, personal acts of kindness and selflessness, and through the spreading of tolerance and understanding between people and cultures. Only as people become more willing to change themselves—the way they think, the way they act—will real change become possible.

It is exactly these types of changes that Cross-Cultural Solutions makes possible. The passion that you bring to your volunteer abroad experience will start a ripple effect, bringing change to people and the communities in which they live. Meanwhile, you’ll find wisdom and beauty in a way of life different from your own.

You'll discover the critical role that every individual plays in achieving lasting change. You'll see that volunteering abroad can be a safe and exciting adventure—the trip of a lifetime where you can learn about another culture while learning about yourself.

Change in the world begins with you. You're closer than ever to making an incredible difference.

Change their world. Change yours.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.
