Every year, Cross-Cultural Solutions sends 2,500 people of all ages to their volunteering centres in Africa, Asia and Latin America. They offer a well structured experience allowing guests to experience living in the country and helping out as volunteers in social & educational roles. Alexandra Rabb describes the volunteer experience, how to get involved, and what it costs. Apologies for the bad video/audio quality.
