Meet Amber, a CCS volunteer in Costa Rica. We're pleased to share her memorable experience with us in Guanacaste!
The most effective approach to volunteering abroad – the only approach – is one designed by the community. With CCS, you’ll do meaningful work that addresses a specific community need. As you immerse yourself in the community – your new neighborhood – and work alongside local people to make a real impact, you’ll find beauty in every connection and commonality discovered, large or small. The CCS international volunteer experience offers you a genuine volunteer experience with countless opportunities to connect with, and learn from, local people in those communities in which you'll work to support.
Once enrolled, your family can choose between opportunities a school infrastructure project, vision project, dental project, or water & sanitation project, or can select to work in a school or daycare on early childhood education. If every member of your family is over the age of 18, you can also work with refugee support in our program in Greece.

Countries have different standards when it comes to vehicle safety, such as whether or not people wear - or if cars even have - seat belts. We go the extra mile with transportation security for our volunteers.
The CCS Home-Base is the home away from home for our volunteers, where they’ll connect with CCS staff and other volunteers, enjoy healthy and authentic meals, reflect on their experiences, or just relax. We ensure that volunteers will feel safe and comfortable.
