DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM AGE FOR VOLUNTEERS?
CCS volunteers include students, working professionals, 50+ volunteers, families, and groups from around the world! For our Volunteer Abroad, Gap Year Abroad, and Intern Abroad programs, volunteers must be 18 to participate independently. Children and teens can participate in our Volunteer Abroad programs if traveling with a parent or guardian (or as part of a chaperoned group). We typically recommend that children be at least 8 years of age to participate, but please contact us to discuss your specific needs for families with younger children. We also offer High School Volunteer Abroad for high school students who wish to make a difference on programs designed just for teens!
The diversity of CCS volunteers is one of the elements that makes a CCS experience amazing! Sharing your experience with volunteers from many backgrounds and perspectives - who quickly become lifelong friends - only deepens the impacts of your work. Hear from some of our volunteers of all ages.
