A squad brings enthusiasm. CCS brings experience.

Squads Abroad, a CCS Program

Squads Abroad empowers teens around the world to improve health and educational outcomes in under resourced communities abroad. Teacher-led "Squads" choose a defined focus area, a location, and an enrichment project that the students contribute towards and complete during their trip. Guided by our professional on-the-ground team, we offer fun and engaging cultural activities that compliment the service work to provide deeper cultural awareness. Our home-base model provides safe and private accommodations for volunteers to enjoy healthy authentic meals, relax after a meaningful day of work, and reflect with your group on all the amazing experiences.
