As a volunteer with Cross-Cultural Solutions, you can contribute to women's empowerment around the world through education, community outreach, cross-cultural exchange, and support. Your passion, energy, and unique skills and experience can help build solidarity and support for women of all ages in their pursuit of healthy and sustainable livelihoods, and better lives for themselves and their families.

Cross-Cultural Solutions is changing the way international volunteering works. Part volunteer experience, part cultural immersion, part eye-opening adventure, we have 20 years of experience and have worked to make the volunteer adventure of a lifetime possible for over 35,000 people just like you.

We have volunteers who've worked toward women's empowerment in each one of our main volunteer impact areas. Here are some examples of how, no matter what your volunteer assignment, you can support the advancement of women and girls:

  • When you volunteer to improve education for children, you may work with young girls who may not yet value their own education. Your presence reinforces the power and importance of education for all children.

  • When you volunteer to enhance the quality of healthcare, you'll be supporting local women and children who, oftentimes, are disproportionately impacted by issues related to public health.

  • When you assist with the care of infants and children, you may be enabling single mothers to pursue gainful employment and full-time, living wages.

  • When you improve health and the sense of dignity among the elderly, you'll likely make a difference for abandoned or abused elderly women who cannot support themselves.

  • When you improve the quality of care for people with disabilities, you may work with children who were abandoned in infancy due to their disability. In many of the countries in which our volunteers work, girls are especially susceptible to this kind of neglect.

  • When you volunteer to support individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS, you may work to support one of our partner organizations working with women or mothers living with HIV.

When you volunteer abroad with Cross-Cultural Solutions, you can learn about another culture while learning about yourself. Change in the world begins with you, and you're closer than ever to making a difference.

Cross-Cultural Solutions. This changes everything.
