My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cross-Cultural Solutions, New Rochelle, NY, USA
I no longer want to travel as a tourist per se. Through its volunteer program CCS offers a combination of activities that allow you to interact with the people, gain a clearer understanding of daily life and at the same time allow for opportunities to experience cultural activities and local landmarks. Although my schedule does not allow time for it now, this trip has made me aware that in the future I would like to volunteer in my area. As a college student, many years ago, I thought of joining the Peace Corps. I realized this was my mini Peace Corps experience. I do hope to return to Guatemala and also participate in other CCS programs. The home base was truly a home away from home. The meals were delicious and the accommodations were good. The staff went out of their way to ensure that our needs were being met.
