Cross-Cultural Solutions - Exclusive Weekend Volunteer Abroad Programs

Join CCS for an Amazing Weekend of Volunteer Service

For the second year, CCS is proud to present our 2017 weekend programs, available in Guatemala and Morocco. Many CCS alumni want to volunteer abroad again, but don’t have the time or budget for it. Other volunteers are interested in joining CCS for the first time, but only have a weekend to give. These experiences are designed for you to make an impact, see another part of the world, and connect with fellow alumni and volunteers in just a few days.

Guatemala

Encounter the dynamic culture of Guatemala, a land where the ancient and modern converge.

CCS Alums in Guatemala

As a weekend volunteer, you will experience the excitement of Guatemala City while connecting with the local community through contributing to a project specifically designed for high impact over a short period of time.

Your volunteer project will be focused on a Guatemala school or at a home for people with disabilities, working with teens and youth to teach English schools, work on art projects, and complete some community beautification projects so you can see your weekend of impact! No matter what your volunteer work assignment, you'll be making a meaningful difference to meet the community needs.

“Volunteers provide a better life to the children living in our home and basic services for their development. They share their joy, love, and dedication.”
