Volunteer in Central America

Your journey volunteering in Central America starts here
When you volunteer in Central America with Cross-Cultural Solutions, you'll find a family you never knew you had. Experience the warmth of the local people in your new community while learning about their culture, history, and traditions. Learn Spanish (or brush up on your skills), wander local markets, or explore ancient ruins and natural wonders. Volunteer with us in Cartago or Guatemala City for a 1-week to 3-month adventure of a lifetime!

CCS volunteers in Central America work to improve child development through Child Education and Child Health initiatives.

Check out the links below for specific information about each destination: Costa Rica or Guatemala.

It's so cliche to say that this ‘changed my life’ but I feel like it enriched my life in ways I'm still discovering. The most prominent thought in my mind as I was preparing to leave [Costa Rica] and in the days after I returned home was ‘I need to do this again.
