Learning & Serving

Meaningful solutions to challenges facing communities require more than giving to charity or simple volunteer projects. Explore how education, public health, and social care can lead to empowerment and sustainability. Develop the skills and perspective to serve communities and lead organizations effectively.



Foundations & Community

Your 10 week experience begins with a 3 week intensive Impact Corp training with the CCS Country President. You’ll gain the skills and perspectives needed to learn and serve in your internship. You’ll live with your Foundations Group and work alongside community leaders providing crucial early childhood development services. Together, you’ll create an exciting learning community that’s engaged with local issues and prepared to take on individualized placements.

Shape your gap experience by choosing among the following internship locations:

  • Costa Rica
  • Ghana
  • Morocco
5 - 7


Volunteer Placement

Live in a homebase with other interns and volunteers, and you’ll receive the support of CCS staff. You’ll put your training into action with an impact work assignment in a struggling community school, supporting the development and educational goals of primary school students.
