We are dedicated to provide quality services to our volunteers. We do this by providing international programs that:

    • Make a Difference to the Global Community

    • are Customized to Your Needs
    • have Flexible Work Schedule and Start Date
    • are Extremely Affordable (program fees starting from only US$180)

These volunteer and internship programs are designed to help the local communities at the same time of providing a cultural learning experience to our volunteers and interns.

    1) Customized Programs with Flexible Work Schedule

    • The programs are customized for you according to your needs. Whether you want to work a lot or a little and whether you prefer urban or rural areas, we do our very best to make sure that your program is what you want, not what you are given.

    2) Flexible Start Time and Duration

    • We have extremely flexible start dates and durations. You can start any week of the year with advanced notice. The duration can vary from 1 week to 6 months for most programs. You may also extend your stay with advanced notice.

    • We try to provide work placements that are educative and meaningful. These programs help to build up your resume, improve your skills, build global networks, learn a new culture, practice a new language, travel, and get the experience of a lifetime.

Open yourself up to other cultures, and challenge your personal beliefs. Increase your global awareness and cultural intelligence. Life’s too short to live in a bubble.

    5) Make a Difference in the Global Community

    • We regularly inspect the programs and make sure they have an impact to the society and be worthwhile to the volunteers/interns. You will feel needed and you will make a difference in the global community.

If you are interested in getting to know our staff or ask questions in person, there is a non-profit meetup group called Cultural Adventure and Volunteering Abroad Meetup. Its regular meetups are for anyone interested in affordable volunteer abroad, intern abroad, cultural adventure, and language immersion opportunities. This group is proudly sponsored by Cross-Continental Solutions with resources and staff support. Together, we hope to make meaningful international experiences easily accessible to everyone. This group is started in order to help people access resources, understand the enriching experience of traveling with a purpose, get connected, and share. Many interesting topics will be discussed. It is great not only for learning and accessing resources, but also for socializing with others with similar interests.
