Here at CCS, we've got some pretty sweet discounts that we're happy to offer to eligible volunteers. Read on for more details and to find out if you qualify. Please let us know if you've got any questions. We're here to help!


With over 35,000 alumni in the CCS family, we've got quite a few folks all over the globe. To thank you for getting others on board, we happily offer a discount to any volunteer who enrolls friends or family. Here's how it works: one person will be designated as the Main Contact. For each additional friend or family member enrolled who is a first time volunteer, both volunteers receive a discount. In order for the discount to be applied, each newly enrolled volunteer must provide the Main Contact's name.

A US$262 discount is applied to each volunteer's program contribution for every person that he or she brings along to the same destination, up to four people.

Here's the total discount amount based on the number of volunteers referred by the Main Contact:

  • 1 person: US$262
  • 2 people: US$524
  • 3 people: US$786
  • 4 people: US$1048

Important Notes: To be eligible for this discount, all participants must travel to the same destination and either be on the same program start date or overlap with one another while in-country. Families of any size are eligible for this discount. This discount only applies to friends and family that are first time CCS volunteers. See below for CCS' Group Discount, which applies to six or more volunteers participating together.


CCS encourages alumni to re-enroll for another CCS volunteer adventure by offering a discount of US$262 off your next program.


CCS alumni who have already participated in three programs are eligible for a discount of 10% off the full program contribution. We can't wait for you to join us again on another CCS adventure!

Important Notes: See the Companion Discount for notes on what companions are eligible for this type of discount.


For participants who enroll in multiple programs at the same time, CCS will apply the Alumni Discount for each additional program after the first.


CCS defines a child as a participant 12 years old and under as of program start date, who does not have an individual volunteer assignment. Children traveling on the CCS program receive a discount of US$700. For more information, please refer to our Age Policy.


Plenty of groups travel with us each year, so we've got this down to a science. Just email our Group Specialist at to discuss your options for start dates (we've got tons), destinations (got plenty of those, too), and program length (one to 12 weeks). When you're ready to enroll, we'll put you on the phone with a specialist for the destination your group has selected. For more information regarding academic groups, please email our Group Specialists at or call us at 1-914-632-002.

Important Notes: A group is defined as six or more people traveling to the same program site, beginning their program on the same start date, and staying for the same duration. The Group Discount must be approved by the Group Specialist prior to enrollment.
