Experiencing empty nest syndrome I decided to contact CCS to volunteer in whatever capacity and wherever I could be used. I went to Ghana and taught English, loved it so much I went back a couple of months later. Since that first experience I've done programs in India, China, Thailand, Tanzania with CCS. It changed my life and impacted my family in a wonderful way also. We've hosted friends I've made while working abroad and they've widen our horizions and opened our minds. I reccomend CCS to everyone who is lucky enough to have the time to do a program.

CAS has become an important part of our family's lives. Our children participated in programs there and now have their children happily taking part in programs suitable for their ages.

We now have many very good friends with whom we socialize after having met them through CAS and we enjoy attending the really fun fundraising events held throughout the year.

The Great!
