Overview

Founded in 1995, CCS is a leader in international volunteering. A gap year with CCS is not your average Gap Year experience. Serve others, immerse yourself in another culture, and discover things about yourself and other parts of the world that you never knew before!

On your Gap Year experience with CCS, you will go beyond surface-level exchanges by working alongside local community members and learning about important social and cultural issues. By spending your Gap Year serving others, you will return inspired with a sense of responsibility and personal agency, knowing you can continue to serve the world as a change agent, global citizen, and an informed leader.

Choose from one of four options:

Global Gap Year: Imagine volunteering among communities living in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, among the hustle and bustle of New Delhi, or within traveling distance of Machu Picchu. Learn about three diverse cultures, participate in ancient traditions and local celebrations, and study the basics of local languages with this program.

Spanish Immersion:  Explore the richly diverse histories of Costa RicaGuatemala and Peru, while you immerse yourself in the language and Latin American culture.

Diversity of Africa: Explore three unique corners of Africa while you embark on the gap year volunteer adventure of a lifetime and discover the communities, cultures, and traditions of MoroccoGhana, and Tanzania.

Build Your Own:  Our expert Program Specialists will help you build your own dream gap year experience in any of our incredible locations!
