This organization is a great one to travel with. They far exceed my expectations for my time that I spent volunteering in South Africa. I did not want to leave when it was time to go home. The time that I spent in South Africa would not have been the same had I not been with CCS. They did a great job of showing us all of the different aspects of the culture and community that South Africa has to offer. Also, the volunteer placement that they gave me was exactly what I was looking for. It was absolutely perfect for my personality and experiences, so they did a great job of finding a place that was well suited for me to work. The staff at the home base was always friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and were willing to do whatever they possibly could to help make our time with them even better. CCS is a great program to travel with because they give you all of the support and guidance that you need, yet if you want your free time to go and explore your travel destination you can do that as well. I really liked being overseas with CCS because I got to explore the city around me on my own at some points, but they also had many activities and tours set up that they provided us with. I will definitely go on another trip with CCS, because it has definitely been a great experience that far exceeded my expectations.
