STUDENT-ATHLETE CIVIC ENGAGEMENT WITH CCS
This Changes Everything.
The Junior League and Cross-Cultural Solutions are going Global.
Cross-Cultural Solutions is a social enterprise working to address critical global issues by providing meaningful volunteer service to communities abroad, and contributing responsibly to local economies. As a leader in the field of international volunteer travel for 20 years, we know that the best approach to International volunteering—the only approach—is one designed by the community.
The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. and Cross-Cultural Solutions have partnered to offer Junior League members incredible, one-of-a-kind opportunities to volunteer internationally! Join us on our exciting journey as we connect with and learn from local people in global communities—a chance to work together to effect real, sustainable change.
“I am thankful to The Association of Junior Leagues International and Cross-Cultural Solutions for the opportunity to turn my dreams into realities. My service trip was beautiful, challenging, fun, impactful, and humbling. I am certain that I gained a deeper appreciation for my life and greater love for my family, friends and country.”

Guatemala City, Guatemala – October 25 – November 1, 2015
Explore the roots of Mayan civilization and learn why so many people have a special place in their hearts for Guatemala. Make a real impact when you assist with the growth and development of children, improve education for children, improve health and the sense of dignity among the elderly, or enhance the quality of healthcare. You’ll make meaningful connections in your new community as you work alongside an incredibly diverse population whose stories have shaped a country. And, in addition to volunteering, there will be opportunities to visit idyllic beach towns, wander Mayan ruins, climb active volcanoes, and participate in Guatemala’s celebration of Dia de los Muertos. This is the adventure of a lifetime that changes lives!
Rabat, Morocco – March 12 – March 19, 2016
Experience an eye-opening first-hand look into Islam and its beautiful and historied layers while you’re taken on a sensory journey through the warm and welcoming country of Morocco. As an international volunteer, you’ll support dynamic grass-roots initiatives that lend services to the women and children of Morocco’s most vulnerable populations. In addition to volunteering, you’ll explore the many colorful medinas of Morocco, visit ancient ruins, and perhaps take a camel trek through the Sahara Desert!
Cross-Cultural Solutions will work with you to customize a one-of-a-kind trip for your League to make a meaningful difference together in one of nine incredible destinations. Your League will come together to grow and learn through your experiences effecting sustainable change as international volunteers. Embark on a journey full of enriching experiences and meaningful cultural immersion on a customized CCS experience, where you’ll work side-by-side with inspiring community members.
Set off on an experience of a lifetime as an independent volunteer. You can spend a week, a month, or even longer with CCS by joining a start date as a solo traveler, or inviting your friends and family to join in the adventure. Wherever you choose to volunteer, you’ll combine meaningful volunteer work with eye-opening cultural activities for a genuine and immersive experience abroad.
