Global Education
Create a positive learning environment to enable students to find their passion for language and literacy and a classroom culture where learning is fun. CCS high school volunteers provide hands-on tutoring and instruction, while completing meaningful projects that carve out inspiring learning spaces in libraries and classrooms. Available in India on all start dates.

As a High School Volunteer Abroad in India, you’ll be welcomed warmly into the rich cultural fabric of the subcontinent and the Himalaya with your team of global change-makers.

Whether you choose between two, three, or four-week sessions on any of the start dates listed below, you’ll be sharing the experience with a group of your peers, all ages 14-18, and like you, they’ve decided that dedicating their summer to serving others abroad while learning more about themselves is a pretty cool challenge to take on.

And that healthy dose of adventure you’re craving? Don’t worry, you’ll get that too! We know it’s your summer and you want to have amazing stories and photos of grandiose temples, the Himalaya Mountains, and the Taj Mahal to share with your friends and family back home.

"People like you have given us hope that our children will not go through the same hardships and live in these same conditions as us."

"CCS volunteers have, for many years, been an integral part of our organization. They help us meet our goals by teaching women skills that make a significant positive impact on their lives."

"Interacting with people from new cultures is an enriching experience for the children, and gives them a rare opportunity to be exposed to a world outside of the community."

"The volunteers help to bridge the gap between our organization and the community. They help to get the community interested in the important work that we do."
