Although anyone can participate, Cross-Cultural Solutions reviews every volunteer enrollment carefully, screening our volunteers to ensure their safety and the safety of the communities in which our programs operate.

The minimum age for volunteers on CCS programs is 18 years old when unaccompanied by an adult. See our High School Volunteer Abroad program for options for high school students to volunteer independently.

While we recommend a minimum age of 8 years old for a child traveling with a parent or guardian (10 in Costa Rica), we do accept younger children on our programs. Please contact a Program Specialist to find a program for your specific needs.

CCS welcomes family participation in our programs, and all CCS programs have no upper age limit.
