CCS Summer High School Volunteer Abroad programs are designed for curious, passionate, and adventurous high school students who want to serve others and connect to another culture while traveling abroad.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” - Gandhi

For 20 years, CCS has been a global leader in volunteer service abroad. Our summer high school program is created for globally adventurous, culturally curious teens who have a deep passion for making a difference in under resourced communities abroad.

CCS volunteers choose from projects in Education, Sports Leadership, Technology, and Health to create meaningful experiences in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ghana, India, Morocco, and Peru. In addition to your volunteer focus, your 1 to 4 weeks abroad with CCS will be filled with exciting excursions and unique Cultural & Learning Experiences - all designed to get you off the tourist path and immersed in a new culture. Your home away from home, in the CCS Home-Base, will be guided by our expert In-Country Staff, who provide guidance, reflection, supervision, language lessons, delicious home-cooked meals, and much more!

APPLY TODAY if you're ready to make a difference this summer, make life-long friends, and connect with communities around the world in one life-changing summer!
