International Opportunities

Cross Cultural Solutions

Students interested in education, health or social services have the opportunity to intern in one of 10 countries, including Xi'an, China; San Carlos, Costa Rica; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and more. Dates vary, but internships are available year round. Summers, interims or winter breaks are definitely a possibility. There is a three to 12 week minimum/maximum, which varies by country.

The Intern Abroad program is an incredible opportunity to have an international internship or to gain work experience in the areas of health, education, or social services. Cross-Cultural Solutions (CCS) is a recognized leader in international volunteering, and the Intern Abroad program provides a supportive and academic framework to the volunteer experience. It's unique because its academic structure will help you pick an area of focus and set your learning objectives.

While interning abroad, you will have an intern advisor, and have to log your experiences as well as complete a summary project. All CCS programs include a volunteer placement, culture and learning activities based on your placement, free time for travel, and lodging in CCS Home-Base, where you will stay with other volunteers.
