I wanted to take a moment to give a shout out to some of the unsung heroes of the Cross-Cultural Solutions programs: the CCS drivers! Our drivers are such an important part of the in-country teams, and in each destination, you'll find that they are some of the warmest and most friendly characters, too.
As Cross-Cultural Solutions Director of Programs, it's my job to keep in close contact with all of our in-country directors and ensure that all of our expert teams around the globe are up-to-date on the latest standards in volunteer safety and security. Over the next few months, I'd like to take some time to introduce you to our country directors as well as talk a bit more about what makes each destination safe and special.
This week, we've got a great interview with Lauren Maitland, Director of Programs here at Cross-Cultural Solutions. Wondering how we can be so sure that CCS is the absolute safest option around? Just take a look at what she had to say.
