Great program! Highly recommend to college students looking to polish their volunteering and interning experiences. However, I've seen everyone enjoy the Cross Cultural Solutions program and it seemed like a great idea for families as well. Unlike many other programs, Cross Cultural Solutions offers everything from room and board at the home base, food, afternoon tours, weekend trips, language classes and transportation. If you want a program that makes you feel safe and welcomed, this is the way to go. Trust me, my college friend and I researched many programs in our second year of college when we went. The staff was amazing, always welcoming, willing to take time out of there leisure hours to help you and made you feel safe at all times. I interned and volunteered in Ayacucho, Peru in a hospital, lab and mental disability school. On our first day of work in the hospital, the first task was to help in delivering a new life into the world, doesn't get much sweeter than that! Also, when working in the mental disability school, I will never forget a girl name Cassandra, who physically could not use her arms, instead only her feet to write, draw and even erase. No matter how tough it was she kept through it and even changed colors when using her coloring book! If you want a program that offers many aspects surrounding the volunteering itself, Cross Cultural Solutions is the program to chose making you feel rewarded everyday and helping in making lifelong friends across the globe!
