OTHER CCS PROGRAMS
Over your Gap Year Thailand volunteer program, you'll have the chance to thoroughly appreciate this stunning country while you engage with local individuals. From pristine beaches and remote mountain communities, to floating markets and bustling cities, Thailand will take your breath away. Experience the fascinating juxtaposition of centuries old Buddhist tradition and a Southeast Asian metropolis over your gap year volunteering in Thailand.
Over the years, many young Thai people have relocated to Bangkok in search of economic opportunity. This migration, however, has resulted in overcrowding in and around Bangkok, and has also put a serious strain on social resources. As a CCS Gap Year volunteer in Thailand, work alongside local people to address these issues and more. Soak up the cultural influences of India, China and Cambodia and the strong presence of Buddhism, all of which meld together to create the unique richness of Thailand.

Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you. Volunteers will always receive their first preference. The only exception to this will be when there are national or school holidays, or there are exceptional circumstances.
CCS volunteers in Thailand greatly contribute to improving the quality of education that every child deserves. Primary schools and organizations that support vulnerable children are under resourced and understaffed. CCS volunteers assist teachers, conduct educational and recreational programming, teach English language skills, and provide children with much needed one-on-one attention.
Through outreach, education, and care, you will provide much-needed support to vulnerable children and adults in low-income communities. In addition CCS is spearheading multiple public health projects in Thailand including vision screening for children, oral health campaigns, and the promotion of hygiene in schools.
