Project Review

Cross-Cultural Solutions works with many underserved communities across the world that are trying to develop and progress with the ever-changing global, and local economy. These communities may lack the resources—social, educational, or other—to be fully proactive on the daily challenges they face. International volunteers can help to empower both local community organizations and individuals with the tools they need to be self-sustainable, successful, and knowledgeable in their future endeavors.

Whether working with at-risk teens, young adults looking to join the workforce, or women striving to earn income for their families, you can help by sharing your time, energy, and experience.

Major Responsibilities

Volunteers may teach English, build resumes, and share business skills with adults in Salvador at a vocational school. Many local students hope to find jobs in the tourism industry, so improving their knowledge of English is key to their future careers. Volunteers are also supporting women’s empowerment here, as classes are mostly female.

Any Missing Important Information

Will there be time to travel when I'm volunteering abroad?

Free time is available some afternoons, most evenings, and every weekend. Our local staff can give you suggestions for places to visit, or you can create your own agenda. During your weekend you can take excursions to other parts of the country, or you may choose not to travel, and stay in town to get to know the community better. You may also choose to travel before or after the program (but this may affect the tax deductibility of your airfare).
