I've been looking for volunteer programs for my 8-yr old son and myself and came across CCS because they aggressively advertise family opportunities.

The question I have according to the attached 2011 Financial statements: Executive Director, Steven Rosenthal, made almost 400K in direct
compensation in 2011. The statements also document that he owns the property CCS works on - and made an additional $718,413 in rent from CCS in 2011. Same in 2010, 2009, etc.

I hate to be cynical but it does sound a bit suspicous. The ED is making over 1 million dollars a year on CCS. Possibley a travel agency disguised as a non-profit?!

I turned them down as to volunteering and they continue to send me their propaganda including this page where there are reviews. 3 out of 11 rate it as a 1! That is one out of 5. I go to Panama and teach English and do it for free and live on my monthly Social Security check of less than $900.00 a month. I'm sure I'm closer to the real life of the public in the countries than one could be in their resort style accomadations. It's a good palyground for the rich to make them feel good while pretending to do a service, but really quite a laugh when it comes down to it.

Have them gracefully withdraw when one has told them no. They are as bad as those religious people who knock on doors asking questions of where will you spend eternity.

I was interested in this organization until I looked up on Charity Navigator that the Ex. Director makes over $275,000 year and they spend nearly $1.3 million on administrative and fundraising expenses. I'm not sure how this is a non-profit in spirit; more like an eco-travel group. Charity is charity, not to make nearly $300K year. Sorry. I'll find another group.
