Review for Cross-Cultural Solutions, New Rochelle, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Cartago, Costa Rica; October 2013. I was placed at San Rafael de Oreamuno Day Center for the elderly by the CCS staff. It was an incredible experience to be able to share time with these seniors. My last day at the center, tears were shed by some of the residents as well as by me. I will carry these memories with me the rest of my life.
Kudos to the CCS staff in Costa Rica as well as those in the US. They did an incredible job preparing us for the volunteer experience in Costa Rica. I plan to stay in touch with some of my new "Ticos" friends. I would highly recommend the adventure to anyone even slightly interested in international volunteer work.
CCS is making an impact within the communities where they operate and on the volunteers who participate in the program. As they would say in Costa Rica, PURA VIDA!!!
