The Cross-Cultural Solutions volunteer always lives through a rich experience while volunteering in Africa, although the organization does offer their unbelievable great volunteers an array of options for their continent and country of choice.
Only as you volunteer in Africa will you discover an incredible part or area of the world and its people, and Cross-Cultural Solutions will walk with you at every step of the way to ensure that you have the best volunteer experience of your life.
Each star volunteer will have the chance to discover the history, culture, and the massive range of people that Africa beholds. While as a volunteer you are committing an extraordinary act, character building gift that will serve you well throughout years to come, all the while experiencing a great gift of being in Africa that will create a strong and heavily lit pathway for the rest of your life.
As you, the volunteer, make a difference within an amazing continent that has provided the world with all things it will actually be you who gains much more from this dynamic region of the world. Many volunteers of Cross-Cultural Solutions have a strong desire to return to Africa once they have experienced it for the first time, although they may not be returning as a volunteer but to explore Africa alone or with family and friends. There has always been a strong natural push to block all things that Africa has given to the world, and here at Cross-Cultural Solutions you can at least gain a small glimpse into seeing what has been purposely hidden from Americans or the rest of the world.
For over 17 years, the Cross-Cultural Solutions organization has been quite active in their role of training and supporting persons to become solid volunteers for all of the participating countries that allow these volunteers to step onto their soil. Throughout each continent and country it is these dedicated volunteers that make a difference in this world, and accomplish tasks that the everyday citizen will never act on or do. The everyday or average citizen; the person that will communicate that they have done the world justice but will in fact only be a slave to television or whatever vice of their desire, and do absolutely nothing to even help their own surrounding neighborhood.
Leave what you thought you knew from media or people at the doorstep of your home, and venture out onto unchartered territory to start the exploration of the truth. This is not to say that all media or people divulge false information about continents, countries, people, race, ethnicities, and culture but it is very unlikely that you will find the truth coming from media and peoples’ tongue.
Make a real connection at one of the local communities of your choice at Ghana, Morocco, South Africa, or Tanzania, and you will not regret it. The best action to do in order to learn about another country or group of people is to immerse yourself into it rather than immerge yourself in hearsay or tourist books, so let go and jump into the world of volunteerism that will reveal another kind of world to you.
