HIGH SCHOOL VOLUNTEERING
Want to know what it’s like to volunteer for a month in Costa Rica with Cross-Cultural Solutions?
The following samplings from my journal/blog clearly depict my amazing experience volunteering abroad in Cartago with CCS.
Each year we challenge our High School Volunteer Abroad volunteers to share videos of their CCS experiences as part of CCS’s “Documentarian of the Summer” contest. In Rohit’s video, you will see the beauty that he found in the vibrant, joyful culture of Dharamsala. Rohit’s journey inspires us all.
This past summer, I volunteered in Ghana's Volta Region, and it was the most incredible two weeks of my life. After volunteering with CCS in Guatemala the year before, I knew I wanted to do it again, but in Africa this time.
This past summer, we launched our very first Documentarian of the Summer contest for our intrepid High School Volunteer Abroad participants. We challenged each of our high school volunteers to produce a video that captures their CCS experience. With so many amazing videos, it was hard to choose just one, but we're pleased to announce our very first Documentarian of the Summer: CCS High School Volunteer Abroad volunteer, Katie Roche!
A member of the Cross-Cultural Solutions HQ staff asked me some questions when I returned from my High School Volunteer Abroad experience in Guatemala. I think my answers can help you make the right decision about the best volunteer abroad program for you, and so I wanted to share.
Recently, we’ve gotten requests from interested parents and adventurous teens looking for more info on the CCS teen program. As always, we’ve got the answers.
